I started my education in Erie, Pennslyviana.I attend McDowell High. I would say that we were one of the richer schools were I live. I am going to talk about my first assignment Brainology. I thought it was very interesting and it thought me a lot about how some people have different mindsets.
Have you ever been lost in a location foreign to you? Typically, a person who is lost will use a map to gather their bearings before heading off in the correct direction. A similar approach can be used to discuss recent brain mapping technology, the primary research of Dr. Allen Jones. Dr. Allen Jones is a brain research whose ultimate goal is to unveil a complete map of the human brain, using recent brain imaging and histological techniques. In his TED talk entitled, A Map of the Brain, Dr. Allen Jones discusses a brief overview of the anatomical structures of the brain, as well as, the methods and conclusions of his brain research.
In the article titled, “Secrets of the Brain” published in the February 2014 issue of National Geographic, we learn that there have been many advances in understanding the inner workings of our brains. One of the leading scentists, Van Weeden, is working hard to understand the connections that occur within our heads.
The PBS special "The Secret Life of the Brain" took us through all different aspects of the brain and its formation through life. These five movies taught us that the brain is plastic and is always changing, cutting unused neurons and filling with different ideas and thoughts that you learn from your environment. The five videos go through the five stages of life; baby, child, teenager, adult and finally the aging brain.
When it comes to the topic of having a growth mindset, most of us will readily agree that students who are praised are motivated to learn. Where this agreement usually ends, however, is on the question of how they are praised. Whereas some are convinced that praising students for their intelligence will motivate them to learn, others maintain that encouraging them for their efforts has a better impact on their motivation.
While on patrol, I was parked in the entrance to Mansard's plaza, facing E Ridge Rd, monitoring traffic. A female in a silver pickup truck pulled into the lot and flagged me down. The female pointed towards a white and maroon Corvette traveling east on Ridge Rd and stated that she believes the driver may be intoxicated. I immediately pulled onto Ridge Rd and got behind the Corvette. As I was following the Corvette east on Ridge, another vehicle with a male driver pulled up to the side of me and shouted out the window, "That guy is drunk". I then observed the Corvette to weave from the outside lane to the center lane, without signaling. The vehicle then abruptly swerved back into the outside lane, without signaling. The vehicle then came to
The Brain That Changes Itself is an informative and an educational book was written by Canadian Psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, writer, and researcher Norman Doidge, who delivers a dramatic change message about the plasticity of the brain; how the brain changes itself. "The Brain That Changes Itself" is a chain of excellent case studies of individuals who have undergone a brain deficit of some kind and examines different types of brain deficits from simple sensory; auditory and visual to complex deficits; missing brain regions. The book recounts neuroscientific advances on how neuroplasticity does not limit the individual to predefined neural limitations and that our way of thinking, as well as the activities that we perform every day,
Carol dweck's article brainology speaks about christopher situation and aspects regarding his fixed and growth mindset. By providing example from the text and carol dweck's article, this essay will further support his growth or fixed mindset, and thoroughly analyze the article itself.
After having watched the video on interactive transcript, I had to re watch it has there was a lot of very useful information. I was always told that the brain takes years to be able master in a skill and be able to be the best at something. My mother always told me that practise makes perfect and that the anything you do in life, if you give it time and effort you will be able to a come any problems you set. What intrigued me is how Terry Sejnowski explains that we are not consciously aware of how our brain works. Brains are evolved to help us navigate complex environments. A lot of the heavy lifting is done below our level of consciousness. I have always wondered how the brain works as everyone has one and yet everyone manages to have a different way of using it. As Terry said the brain only weights 3 pounds but it somehow manages to consume ten times more energy by weight than the rest of the body. Many tops scientist have said it is the most complex devices known in the universe. Brain works in all these different ways and that is why it so hard for us to understand how it really functions.
Since the dawn of the age of technology, humanity has made massive progress in the study of the human brain. Specifically, humanity’s new technology has led to revelations about the way the brain functions, and continues to discover the neurophysical reasoning behind human actions. These new discoveries continue to disprove previous theories, and have now begun to affect the way society views and perceive criminal law and the way it operates. In his book Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain, David Eagleman argues that there is a deep problem regarding how we think about whether it makes sense to blame people for their actions. Eagle argues that, in light of recent technological medical advancements, the existence of free will is beginning to seem highly improbable, and that both simple and complex actions can be traced back to their neuroscientific basis, without first bypassing the conscious mind. In this paper, I will argue that the theory and reconsideration proposed by Eagleman is, in fact, accurate, and a highly probable proposition for the future of the legal system.
There is always a process or stages in which things works or grow. They starts from the beginning and gradually work itself through the correct transformation or process.
The amygdala video was very informing to me. Our amygdala is a small region in our brain that is in the temporal lobe which is located behind your ear. The first part that stuck with me through this video is the picture/shape that he gave. Our amygdala is shaped like an almond where it primarily associated with fear because it is must easier to study fear than things that are good. The amygdala gets sensory information directly from the various sensory systems. I think that it’s interesting that our amygdala can take in information for the environment and use the information. Our brain knows when something painful is about to happen. I think this can tie into the way I feel before I get a shot from the doctor. My brain knows which allows me
After viewing the documentary, I learned many new things about the brain. I learned that a person’s brain controls everything inside of our bodies. This is everything from our movements, thoughts and even controls fear. Our brain is persistently at work to make sure our bodies do exactly what they are supposed to do.
However, the most memorable thing I was able to see that day was the human brain. Looking at it, it didn’t look much different than models we had used in class. The student in charge of that section went over the fundamental parts of the brain, things I had studied for class. Though it was interesting, the moment that made it really real for me was the moment I was able to hold it. Holding it is my hand, the basic anatomy of the brain went away. I stood in an awed silence as I tried to imagine the things it had seen, had heard, the life it had lived. This was the motor to human existence. Though brains may look similar on the outside, on the inside they were so unique, so different, each like a snowflake, only ever occurring once. It was in that moment that I knew I wanted to learn all I could about this fascinating object that is the mind, unlock doors that had previously been closed, and leave the world a better place than I found it.
This video starts with a race car driver with emphasis on his brain and how it controls hid driving techniques. Stated in this video are the functions of this; how his brain woke him and will put him to sleep, tissue of the brain allows him to remember, the back of the brain relays what the eyes see. Than the information in this video went on to describe; the ribbon on top of the brain relays info about touch. The ribbon just in front of that sends commands to the spinal cord, the frontal lobe is his thinking planning brain, and all parts of the brain must work together.
