Transcript of Tyler Ebert: Life Span Project

Average Size and Weight of a Baby. Piaget's Cognitive
Stages You may ask..
What are teratogens? And an Embryo?.. While the fetus is developing...
Be aware of teratogens!! Prenatal Development:
Zygote to Birth Critical Periods are A Zygote, is a newly fertilized egg.
The single-celled Zygote becomes two, and then two become four.

After dividing 7 times in one week, the cells start to specialize in function.

Our genes then direct this process to develop into a brain and others to develop into the lungs or its heart. On around the tenth day when the Zygote attaches to the mother's uterine wall. After the 14-day milestone the developing human organism is now newly then considered an Embryo.

It has a noticeable heartbeat and red blood cells produced by its liver now. This stage will last about eight weeks and at the end, most of its major organs will have been formed. Teratogens are viruses, toxins, and drugs that may slip through the screen of the placenta which can prevent the fetus from developing normally. For example: As a toddler you schema for getting food may have been to pull on the pant leg of the nearest adult, or to start to cry. Before Birth. NEXT! Embryo Zygote Fetus Soo...What is a Zygote? And the Fetus.. At 9 weeks the baby enters the fetal period.
It is "unmistakably" in human form.
At the end of 6 monthsthe organs have developed enough
to provide a chance of survival. Fetal Acohol Syndrome This is an effect that a baby
can obtain due to the mother
of it who would have had to
consume large amounts of
alcohol while pregnant. Effects: Physical and Mental abnormalities.
Such as retardation. There is no safe quantity of
alcohol that can be consumed while pregnant!! Reflexes Temperament...
I consider a type reflex too. Rooting Reflex A Baby's tendency to open the mouth
when touched by it and search for the
source of the liquid.
An automatic and unlearned response. What is a Reflex? Reflexes are automatic, unlearned responses. They are survival behaviors and nearly every baby is equipped with them.
Such as sucking, swallowing, and grasping. This is because it is how babies first start to react and behave. It is their characteristic emotional excitability, reactivity and intensity . Temperament remains constant! Physical Development Motor Motor Development Motor Development is basically what skills they develop physically and when.
1st: Lifts head 90 degrees lying on stomach. (2.5 months)
2nd: Rolls over. (3-4 months)
3rd: Sits propped up with head steady. (3-4 months)
4th: Sits without support. (6-7 months)
5th: Stands holding on to something. (6-10 months)
6th: Walks holding on to something. (9-13 months)
7th: Stands alone well. (12-14 months)
Last: Walks well. (12-14 months) Rough time Stages! Some infants reach the milestone faster than others, but the stages all occur in the same order. The average weight of a new born baby is 7.16 pounds. Muscle Coordination/ Movement The reflexes the babies first have after birth star to disappear as they gain more control of their movements and interact more with the people and things around them. Schemas!! A schema is concepts or mental frameworks that organize and interpret information. EXAMPLE.... Tyler Ebert
Psychology 7th hour
2-18-13 Stranger Anxiety: The fear of strangers that infants commonly display... begins at around 8 months. Attachment: An emotional tie with another person. young children demonstate attachment by seeking closeness to the caregiver and showing distress when seperated. Positive A Positive attachment is a secure attachment. This predicts social competence. (More outcoing, confident and persistent) Negative A negative attachment is deprivation of even having attachment. Those raised without much attention and stimulation tend to appear withdrawn and frightened. Parenting Patterns Authoritarian Style of parenting marked by imposing rules and expecting obedience. Permissive Rare disciplinary type of parenting. Maturity expectations are low, and communication from parent to child are low but child to parent are low. Authoritative Parenting that makes demands on child, are responsive, setting and enforcing of rules and discuss reasons for the set rules. Adolescent Development Physical

The first important physical change is puberty (when a person matures sexually) . Reproductive organs develop (primary sex characteristics) and breast development in girls and facial hair in boys develop (secondary sex characteristics). Cognitive

When adolescents begin to develop adult thinking and reasoning which is the Formal Operational Stage. Also they an possibly form fomal logic, abstract thinking, and hypothetical reasoning which represent a Qualative change. Social

Adolescents find their own identity and the solidify it by testing and integrating various roles. Erikson and Kohlberg Erikson Kholberg Erik Erikson was the theorist of social development that illustrates how certain issues peak during different periods of life including adolescence. Lawrence Kholberg was a theorist of moral reasoning that demonstrates how our way of thinking about moral situations changes with our level of development. Physical Social Cognitive During an individuals twenties their physical abilities will top out. After the peak of their physical abilities it will decline. Their fluid intelligences decrease also, in other words reflexes and reaction are decreased. Thinking skills in aging adults at older ages decrease as time continues. Researchers found that younger people have a significantly better memory than people a lot older than them although the time to answer an intelligent question for older people increases, the knowledge and verbal skill continues to increase Love and Work are the two key factors that effect our social well being during early and middle adult hood. Based on past events in an individuals life, their later social capabilities can be altered. Ageism Ageism is the tendency to categorize and judge people on the basis of how old they are (Berger, 2001).
It doesn't affect older adults only either. Death/Dying Deaths vary from culture to culture. For example: In Africa death brings status to an elder and they join in watching the still living. Another example is the U.S where the reaction to death is often changing. Sometimes happy to end the suffering and also a lot of grieving, too.
