When we first began our class in the summer I was already pretty excited about all the different types of things we were going to learn and talk about over this semester. I have always found the subject of psychology to be very interesting and now I was getting the chance to actually take a psychology class. Here was my oppertunity to get a closer look into how our brains work and find out a little bit more about why we act the way we do. I think just about everyone would be at least slighty interesting in learning about these things. It not only helps you understand other people, but it also opens up a little window into your own head and helps you understand yourself that much more. As generally curious humans we always want to know more about ourselfs and others so the study of psychology is something just about everyone might be, at the very least, slightly interested in.
So I am going to talk about a few of the things that I found most interesting in this class. It is sort of hard to narrow it down to 6 specific things when I find most everything we talked about worth mentioning, but then I'd just be re-writing the entire book. ***************
The first thing I want to talk about is a little bit of the neuroscience aspect. This part of psychology is more on the scientific side, and for somereason we I started this class I did not think there would be very much talk about anatomy ans science. I had imagined that the class would be all about the things we studied in the last chapters, mood disorders and therapies. But if you want to learn about those things it only makes sense that you have to have a basic understanding of how your brain works on a biological level. So I have learned about neurons before in other classes but it is a little odd to think something so tiny has control over us. Without these tiny little things we could no exsist. They are what allow our brain and body to function. It is a little mind blowing to try and picture the millions...
