Understand how the brain works, understand how you work. This will lead to a more self-aware population and will propel people into a state of ubiquitous enlightenment. Imagine a society based on truth, love, understanding and welfare for all.

It would cost a lot to hire professors or teach the professors about this new topic. It is very advanced. Students may not even understand any of it. Just an article outlining a "basic overview" of the brain is insanely long and in depth.

There is no easy way to teach those students. Will making people more self-aware be worth the costs? Will it even work? There are already health classes about our body with all its systems, there is no need to teach about such a complex topic like the brain.

You cant make money unless you spend money. In reality, It is fairly straightforward to understand the basic allocations of brain structures and their respective functions, for example, the prefrontal cortex in relation to decision making, the amygdala in relation to compulsive behaviour, the hippocampus and memory. If condensed into bite-sized informational chunks an understanding of how the brain affects an individuals daily life can become apparent, for example, an individual can understand what leads them to react to certain stresses in such a way, someone failing at math can understand how to strengthening areas of the brain dedicated to logic and short term memory, an artist can understand how to more potently exercise the parts of their brain dedicated to creativity, these examples contextualized are improvements in the processing of information, through the creation of new neuronal pathways. Other benefits include, increased emotional intelligence making a participant aware of their thoughts allowing them greater control, overall better quality of life for participants giving one example participants will be more prepared to deal with the problems in life in a more concise and astute manner. These types of improvements applied on a societal level will increase productivity, create more robust employees, leading to more revenue to employers creating more jobs and more innovation.

Do we really need all those subjects in the brain? "human brains, function, geography, theorem, psychology", as stated in the resolution, are certainly a lot. We don't necessarily need to know the geography of the brain. That will only help brain surgeons. Cannot we merely teach everyone the basics?

Knowing the brains structure will help the understanding of how it works. Imagine you have moved to a new town, it will help you a great deal if you know where the bank is, the library, the town hall, the hospital. Its the same with the brain, it will aid in the recognition of what each part of the brain does so we can all become accustomed to it.

that really ain't important you know. It's a wrong comparison. If you recognize what those buildings look like and their functions, that's good. You really don't need to know that the library is to the right of the town hall, just how to recognize the difference in them, which is not exactly geography.
