47.47-50題為題組 The brain, which weighs less than 2.2 pounds, is perhaps the most complicated organ in our bodies. Although scientists have not been able to solve all the mysteries of this amazing organ, they have made some progress. They have found that certain parts of the brain are responsible for learning, memory, and language. Recent studies indicate that the two halves of the brain—the right hemisphere and the left hemisphere—play extremely important roles in learning and communicating. The left hemisphere deals with rules, lists of information, and short-term memory. In contrast, the right hemisphere deals with feelings, colors, and long-term memory. Scientists recognize the importance of both hemispheres in the learning of all sorts, including language learning. Scientists now relate left and right hemispheres to the way different individuals learn languages. They believe that some learners use one half of their brains more than the other half. Left-brained learners usually concentrate on memorizing les and lists. They use logic, definition, and repetition to learn. Right-brained learners look for a general picture and concentrate on relating new information to what they already know. They use associations and intuition to learn. Most people fall into one of these types. If teachers know whether their students are left-brained or right-brained, they can help them learn better.
【題組】47. Mary is a typical left-brained learner. Which of the following descriptions does NOT fit her?
(A) She thinks in a very logical way.
(B) She is very artistic and romantic.
(C) She often scores A in sentence-combining tests.
(D) She is very good at math.

48.【題組】48. What is the most significant implication that teachers can draw from the above information? They should
(A) encourage students to memorize rules.
(B) show students how to use logic to solve problems
(C) urge students to relate new information to what they already know.
(D) try to find out the best learning styles for individual students.

49.【題組】49. Which of the following statements is TRUE?
(A) Damage of one hemisphere does not always cause complete loss of speech.
(B) Remembering one's way home involves short-term memory.
(C) Language learning takes place only in one hemisphere.
(D) Scientists have solved all the mysteries of the brain.

50.【題組】50. What is the best title of this passage?
(A) The Short-term and Long-term Memory
(B) Discoveries in the Field of Hemispheres
(C) A Recent Scientific Discovery
(D) The Amazing Human Brain
