As a musician the topic of neuroscience as it relates to music and it’s effects on the brain and emotions is highly intriguing to me. With no scientific background I have personally witnessed the effects of music on Alzheimer’s patients, teenagers and babies hence, my chosen path of discovery for this assignment.
As Gatsby cautiously returns to the room, a heavy atmosphere oppresses the two occupants. Gatsby, afraid of getting too close to Daisy and ruining their meeting, sits on the opposite end of the couch. Daisy and Gatsby maintain their conservative distance from each other, enduring the awkwardness of the situation. The old clock resonates with each tick as it dictates the time in the room, with only the rain connecting them with the world outside. A competion of patience in the awkward silence begins. Gatsby is the first to move as he shoots up from the couch and speaks.
In Chapter 1, the narrator introduces himself as Nick Carraway and talks about himself and his father. He describes himself as tolerant but fails to realizes his views are very biased and speaks with pity to those who “haven't had the advantages that you've had,” as his father says. Nick comes from a well-known Mid-Western family, and graduated from Yale (as his ancestors have) in 1915. After fighting in World War I, he comes home restless and decides to learn the bond business. His father finances Nick for a year and Nick lives in a house on West Egg. He talks about West and East Egg. West Egg is the less fashionable of the two, and consists of new money. He lives between Gatsby's mansion and another millionaire. East Egg consists
You don’t have to make a massive fashion production. Want to take a selfie? Cool! Want to invite a friend to do the modelling? Awesome! Are you photographing your clothes flat? Also great! Think about how you normally wear those pants or that shirt.
Despite the differences in specific associations, both synaesthetes and non-synaesthetes appeared to employ an identical strategy for mapping sounds to colors that involves pitch-lightness mappings (i.e. lightness increases with pitch), and they all showed identical influences of timbre on chroma. Based on the results of the first experiment, the researchers present the second study to further examine whether the color experience in synaesthetes is automatically elicited upon presentation of a tone. Nine synaesthetes and nine controls from the Experiment 1 were asked name the color of a patch on the screen while simultaneously listening to tones over the headphones which they were asked to ignore. The tones either elicited a synaesthetic color that was congruent with the color on the screen or a synaesthetic color was incongruent with it. Results revealed that synaesthetes were slowed at naming the color when given an incongruent sound. The findings suggest that the synaesthetic colors are automatically elicited in synaesthetes. The last experiment aims to investigate whether the auditory cue can orient attention to the synaesthetically congruent
The beginning of chapter four starts off with Nick giving a list and describing the guests that come to Gatsby’s parties. The tone of this passage seems to be casual but amused. Nick starts ranting a list of endless names, each with a description about that person, while seeming very interested in who these people are and why they are at Gatsby’s party. He says it as if he has had a lot of time to analyze and group the different kinds of people at the party. He is able to group them apart from East Egg and West Egg. He tells a lot of background information about each person,like the fact the “young Brewer, who had his nose shot off in the war” or “Edgar Beaver, whose hair turned cotton-white one winter afternoon for no good reason at all” (Fitzgerald
1 in the beginning of the book the narrator, nick caraway, describes himself. He then goes on to tell how one summer he move out to New York, west egg. West egg was a place for people that were rich but didn’t know any important people. Those kinds of people lived in east egg. Nick then goes to visit his cousin, Daisy, who is leaving in east egg. When he gets there he is greeted by her husband, tom. He is a sporting man and also a racist. When they are eating dinner he gets a phone call that daisy’s friend Jordan says is from his lover. Nick then goes home and sees Mr. Gatsby standing on his dock.
Chapter 4 starts off with Nick providing a list of all the guests who attended Gatsby’s parties in the summer and the irony is that none of them actually knew him. When Nick accompanies Gatsby on a trip into the city for lunch, he reveals the truth about his past. Gatsby states that he is from a wealthy family from the Midwest town of San Francisco, he graduated from Oxford, and declared himself a hero in the war. During lunch, Gatsby introduces Nick to his former business partner, Meyer Wolfsheim who apparently fixed the 1919 World Series. Based on the conversation, Nick begins to think that Gatsby is involved in an organized crime. When they leave the restaurant, they come across Tom Buchanan and as Nick introduces Gatsby to him, Gatsby becomes
Throughout high school a student is required to obtain four credits of English. In these English classes we have read many stories with numerous characters. The story we are reading now is “The Great Gatsby.” In chapter one of this novel there are three main characters- Daisy, Tom, and Nick. This chapter sets the tone for the rest of the story and leads the reader to feel a certain way about each character.
In the book, Bush describes the views of postmodern evolutionary believed and offers a Christian reaction. He urges believers to become knowledgeable on these matters, spurn finding the middle ground and support their faith against the changes that has taken place in the leading cultural example. The author attempts to answer questions on how these changes took place all between the nineteenth and twenty centuries. Bush distinguished in an interview that some believers of Christ "don't understand what's happened. The world around them is not like it was when they grew up, when there was more of a cultural consensus that Christianity was important truth. Now there's more of a cultural consensus that it's irrelevant and off to the side." (Bush
“And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.”
I really don’t understand tom and I don’t agree with him having a mistress even though he’s already married and has a kid. I think its wrong and I agree with how nick was reacting on how he was thinkung he should call the police. If I had to say a theme for this chapter It might be money can’t buy happiness. Because with all the money that tom has you would think that daisy and tom would be a happy
Skipping ahead of where we left off last chapter, chapter 6 starts by giving us more background on Gatsby through Nick. We find out that Jay Gatsby is actually a made up persona from James Gatz, and his actual background seems to be in sharp contrast with that of Jay Gatsby’s. He spent his childhood in Minnesota where he met who seems to have played a major impact on Gatsby’s character, and older man named Cody, who took Gatsby under his wing and essentially brought Jay Gatsby to life. Another downside to Gatsby's American dream is that it has, in essence, stunted his growth, intellectually, spiritually, and emotionally.
Chapter seven starts off with Nick discovering that Gatsby ended his parties because he no longer needed them to attract Daisy and he fires all his servants, replacing them with Wolfsheim’s men. On the hottest day of the summer, Daisy invites Nick and Gatsby to her house to have lunch with her, Tom and Jordan. The lunch is awkward as a result of the intense heat, and Daisy questions what they should all do with the rest of their day and she says that she wants to go into the city. Daisy and Gatsby lock eyes and Tom can sense by looking into her eyes, that they love each other and then agrees to head to the city. Before they leave for the city, Gatsby tells Nick that Daisy’s voice is “full of money”. As Tom drives Nick and Jordan in Gatsby’s yellow car, Daisy and Gatsby ride alone in Tom’s coupe and at this moment, it is clear that Tom is aware of their
