Juan Salinas and Les Cohen Quoted in Austin American-Stateman

Posted: August 16, 2003

Juan Salinas and Les Cohen were quoted in an Austin American-Stateman feature, "Behold the Brain" by Jane Grieg (in Life & Arts, Saturday, August 16, 2003):

"Information is constantly coming in, says Juan Salinas...During a classroom lecture, the teacher's voice is competing with information already stored in the brain as well as information from other areas -- noise in the hallway, a lawn mower outside the classroom window, a growling stomach."

"Cohen says all learning is like reading, integrating simple information into more complex information."
