I am really enjoying my Exploring Psychology class. I have gotten used to the teachers accent so that is no longer a problem. She used her accent as a learning lesson about how the mind will adapt so that no student can use her accent as a reason for not doing homework in her class. (Smart Teacher)
We reviewed chapter 5 today and watched some videos. I am just amazed at how our eyes and ears work. Did you know that you really do not "see" with your eyes or "hear" with your ears? Your eye only takes things a far as the retina and then it all gets turned in to electrical impulses that travel to your brain. The reason I bring that up is that we watched a video that had a woman "seeing" with her tongue! She was blind from birth but they were able to translate electrical impulses of "seeing" and with practice she was able to "see" with her tongue. She was amazed that she was able to "see" a candle flame flickering.
Also we did a little bit on chapter 6. One part of the chapter was about dreams. Of course there were some people that just had to share their dreams. I felt bad for them, boring dreams! I have dreams about Capt Kirk and I being in a alien prison that nobody have ever escaped from. Spock shows up and with Vulcan technology is able to get us out and we race off in a red convertible that has dual jet engines in the back, oh, and it floats. (Maybe I'm a nerd?)
This came in the mail today from Oregon Sunshine, she sent this for Abby's birthday. Abby really likes them. Harvey that cat likes them too, but they are for Abby and she wont share.
Thanks OS! That was really nice of you. Abby gives you a big lick!
