Introducing Psychology Sep 1 lecture  What is Psychology? o Psychology the study of mind and behaviors. It uses the scientific method to observe, explain, and address questions we have about they way we think and do things.  What is mind? o The mind is where your private experiences, thoughts, feelings, and memories are stored. The experiences we have that come from our minds is caused by chemical and electrical activities in our brain.  Memory is a record of your experiences added by changes in your brain structure when your brain stores information by connecting and adding neurons, which are brain cells. o The brain commits something to memory in two basic ways Relevance and repetition.  Relevance  An event, information, etc. and it’s meaning to you.  Emotional memories and past experience o When forming memories, the ones that stand out the most are those that made an impact on how we felt. A terrifying experience is more likely to stay with you than your twenty fifth lecture in Math. o Information that you’ve been exposed to before is easier to remember than what was new. o The more emotional the experience the better you recall it.  Repetition  When something occurs or is brought up often  When one thing is repeated in correlation to another thing more than once your brain recalls those moments. Like in the Matrix your brain knows the déjà vu is important enough remember. (Try to recall an even that you witness and then saw repeat. I remember seeing a squirrel with an overly large apple running from tumble weed, then 15 minutes later the same thing happened with a different squirrel) This is where the lecture regarding information end and tips on how to improve your memory begins. I added a bit more information down below to make some of it stick.  Emotion is important: it can help you manage your social life or assist you in reacting to disastrous events. o Fun fact: The frontal lobe of our brains can be removed, and it has been done in the past by psychiatric hospitals. However, it has many permeant adverse effects such as but not limited to a non-existent attention span and a loss of key emotions such as fear. People who have had even a small part of the lobe removed have trouble or can’t feel sadness, anxiety, and other emotions that help keep us alert and wary of the world. o Unrelated: A YouTube video on Game Theory does a wonderful job of explaining the effects frontal lobe removal causes in a explanation of FNAF 4 2
