The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of Brain-based Learning (BBL) on physical education students' scientific mind with BRAISE Model. BRAISE Model was developed based on Brain-based Learning consisting of 6 steps: 1) Brain-Gym, 2) Rouse, 3) Accessing Information, 4) Implementation, 5) Summary, and 6) Extension. The study group consist of 40 first year students from Sports Science Program in Faculty of Sports and Health Sciences at Institute of Physical Education Mahasarakham that were selected by using purposive sampling. In the study, a One Group Pretest-Posttest Design was used as a step toward the implementation of BRAISE Model. Scientific mind assessment form, Semi-interview form were used to collect data. The finding of the study revealed that the students mean score of scientific mind after learning with the BRAISE Model was significantly higher than before at .05 level and also significantly higher than cut-off scores at .05 level. Data from Semi-interview associated with students' behavior observation showed that BRAISE Model affected students' thinking skill, responsibility and attempt to study science.

I'm a graduated student at Science Education Center, Srinakharinwirot University and also a teacher at Institute of Physical Education, Mahasarakham. I’m interested in studying how students learn using brain-based learning. I developed BRAISE Model based on Brain-based learning to improved achievement and scientific mind.
