Transcript: How does the brain process emotions? Researchers: Milan Philbert Jaydan Jacobs Zion Shaw Math Behind Science 2017 Brain Activity Abstract The purpose of this study is to show how the brain processes emotions. The brain is composed of various areas that perform tasks that result in the production of emotions. These areas of the brain make up a complex system of nerves and networks known as the Limbic System. The brain's emotional processes affect an individual physically, mentally and emotionally. Introduction "Emotion is defined as the state of mind a person is in at a particular moment, as well as the physiological response a person is experiencing at that time" (Ashcraft, Radvansky, 2014). In the brain, emotions are connected with a number of structures and areas consisting of the amygdala, the hippocampus, and the hypothalamus. "The amygdala is responsible for multiple emotional responses, like love, fear, anger and sexual desire, the hippocampus interacts with the amygdala when a person has memories with emotional ties, and lastly the hypothalamus acts as a regulator of emotion, controlling levels of sexual desire, pleasure, aggression and anger" (Stannard, 2011). Procedure Different steps were carried and gathered throughout this research: Articles supporting the topic were found online. Important details were then identified, annotated and made into topic outlines. Information that was not clear from the articles, were further researched on the internet. Results It was found that various parts of the brain perform various tasks which all lead to the production of emotions. According to author Shuo Wang, "most people are familiar with feeling that a face just looks too ambiguous to really decide what emotion the person is having". Researchers carried out a neuroimaging study using fMRI of recording single cells from the amygdala and additionally studied the emotion judgments of three rare subjects with impaired amygdalae. The impaired subjects showed an abnormally low threshold for deciding when a face was fearful. Conclusion This research was informative and influential and has boosted overall interest in the brain and its connections with other aspects of the body. This research will inspire other researchers to continue to learn more about the brain in the future. References Anne Trafton | MIT News Office. (2016, March 31). How the brain processes emotions.

Transcript: To Start What is short term memory? What is long term memory? What is the difference between the two? How can I sustain my memory? Short Term Definition: noun Abbr. STM information retained in the brain and retrievable from it over a brief span of time Short-term memory is of limited capacity, usually 5-9 items Beyond this capacity, new information can "bump" out other items from short-term memory. This is one form of forgetting. Short Term Memory works basically the same as a computer's RAM in that it provides a working space for short computations and then transfers it to other parts of the memory system or gets rid of it. STM is most often stored as sounds, especially in recalling words, but may be stored as images Let's test it out on you! How did you do? How many letters from each trial did you remember? Was there a "pattern" to what letters you remembered? Long Term Injury Alcoholism Aging – Hormonal Fluctuations Depression Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Fibromyalgia Underactive Thyroid Neurodegenerative disease - Alzheimer’s, Dementia, Huntington’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Parksinsons disease Short Term memory can be described as fleeting, whereas long term memory can last for a whole lifetime. Teachers strive for their students to gain LONG TERM MEMORY. Sustaining Memory Try to become interested in what you're learning Mind stimulating games The key ingredient that facilitates long-term storage is meaningfulness.

Transcript: Leslie Lemke Born completely normal but got struck in the head with a baseball when he was 10 years old. After this he could perform complex calendar calculations and remember the weather every day from the day of the accident. Daniel first became famous when he recited from memory Pi to 22,514 decimal places. He sees each integers up to 10,000 as having their own unique shapes, color, texture and feel. He can "see" the result of a math calculation, and he can "sense" whether a number is prime. Orlando Serrell They don't have an internally damaged mind Thinking brain (cerebrum) is isolated from outside world except one "window" Their sensory channels are damaged except one area, such as sound or hearing, allowing them to become a genius in that one area. Types Musical Savant Have the ability to replay difficult musical compositions after hearing them only once. They could also read one page of sheet music and finish the song without turning the page. What are they? Daniel Tammet By Erica Bass & Brittany Lokey Idiot Savants An idiot savant is someone that is unable to learn, read or write yet have incredible knowledge in math, music or art. Mathematical Savant: How their brain works He was born with severe birth defects that required doctors to remove his eyes. When he was 16 years old, his mother woke up to find Leslie playing Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1. Leslie, who has no classical music training, was playing the piece flawlessly after hearing it just once earlier on the television. - have the ability to reveal the day of the week and the date of any holiday in the past or future instantly and with accuracy. Calender Savants: The theory is... Types of Idiot Savants Types - can add, subtract, multiply or divide large sequences of numbers in there head with no effort It is unknown exactly how these individual acquire this knowledge because they don't learn like the average human does.
