Tier 1 Performance Solutions is a knowledge management company that assists businesses undergoing change to educate and inform their workforce using their online software programs. There is a Brain and Behavior Blog on their website where they post various articles by educators, neuroscientists, and other professionals on new insights made in the realm of neuroscience and the way the brain learns. Of particular interest was the article on "The Brain-targeted Teaching Model" by Dr. Mariale Hardiman, a Johns Hopkins faculty member and a pioneer in the “neuroeducation” movement. The blogger replaces some of the neuroscientific words with plain English to make the articles easier to understand.
