Brain circuits are involved in higher brain functions such as creativity, which is the result of deliberate control and not spontaneous generation. The prefrontal cortex instigates the creative process as well as the working memory buffer by holding the content of consciousness. Creativity is a fundamental activity of human information processing as well as problem solving, creative cognition, and expertise acquisition. Because the same brain circuits are used in creativity, problem solving, creative cognition, and expertise acquisition, creating lesson plans that work to involve all of these can help a child learn easier and at a steady pace. If the teacher were to use a different lesson plan for each area, it would take considerably longer for the child to learn the lessons (1).

Using neuroscience technology researchers have been able to take safe noninvasive measurements of student brain activity as early as birth. The language development area of the brain has proven to be documentable at an exceptionally ...
