Title: New York Times Lesson Plan: Brain Brands

Description: Why do those holiday cookies and candies -- placed conveniently at child height at the cash register -- get you drooling and entice you to fill your cart with unintended purchases? It might be neuromarketing at work. In this thought-provoking activity, created by Georgia Scurletis and Briget Anderson and offered through the _New York Times_ LearningNetwork, students (grades 6 - 12) are challenged to think about how branding and marketing may influence their taste more than their taste buds themselves. The lesson includes a reading of There's a Sucker Born in Every Medial Prefrontal Cortex, by Clive Thompson of the _New York Times_, and has complete instructions for a one-period lesson.
