What have you learned so far in psychology?
What have you learned so far in psychology? How does it pertain to your life? I want you to create a 1 to 2 page infographic on the top 10 things you have learned in psychology. Your Top 10 list must include a specific topic from each of the eight chapters we have covered, the extra two topics can come from any of the 8 chapters we have covered thus far. You must tie each concept to something in your life or a real-world situation. Be sure you are applying or relating the concept correctly. Each concept/topic of your list should be approximately 2-5 sentences long. Make sure your infographic is visually appealing, use appropriate colours, graphics and images
In Chapter 3 we learned about neurotransmitters and brain areas. One idea in my Top 10 list might include: “Dopamine & Nucleus Accumbens. Dopamine is an important neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and reward. When I eat my favourite chocolate, a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup, dopamine is released in my nucleus accumbens, part of my limbic system! The increase in dopamine here ensures that I will keep coming back to Reese Peanut Butter Cups in the future”
In Chapter 6 we learned about sleep disorders. One idea for my Top 10 List might include: “Insomnia. Insomnia is a sleep disorder that affects up 40% of the population. My mother experiences insomnia as she has a hard time staying asleep for long periods of time and experiences a lot of daytime fatigue. Insomnia is affect ed by biological, psychological and environmental causes. My mother’s insomnia is likely related to the stress she experiences as a nurse.”
