Transcript of No Pain, Lots of Game

My hypothesis is that the video games will distract us from the pain of the cold.
will a distraction of playing video games block out or distract us from pain of the coldness of sticking your feet in a tub of ice water?
more materials
5. Chair
6. Towel
7. Stopwatch
8. Computer or video game console too.
9.Video games
10. Lab notebook
11. Graph paper

procedure without video games
1.Fill the bowl or basin with a single layer of ice cubes.
Add cold water until the ice cubes are just covered.
2.Measure the temperature of the ice water with a thermometer until the temperature stops changing rapidly, and is stable. Record the temperature of the ice water in your lab notebook.

3.Obtain your first volunteer and have him or her sit in a chair and remove any shoes, sandals, or socks.
4.Spread a towel out on the floor in front of the chair and make sure there are no electrical cords or power strips underfoot.

procedure without video games
5.Have the volunteer carefully rest his or her heel on the edge of the bowl, being careful not to tip it over with the weight of his or her foot,

6.Explain to the volunteer what you want him or her to do.

7.Set the stopwatch at zero, and then say go, and press start on the stopwatch as the volunteer dips his or her toes into the ice water

8.When the volunteer removes his or her toes from the ice water, press stop on the stopwatch and record the time in a data table for this volunteer in your lab notebook. Stop the test if more than 3 minutes have passed, and find a different test subject. If a volunteer is able to go past 3 minutes without

Have you ever come home and looked down and found a cut or bruise on your knee? You have no idea when or how you got hurt, because you felt nothing at the time. This is an example of how distraction can relieve pain.
1. Large, flat, heavy bowl or basin
2. Ice cubes, a few trays
Cold water
3. Kitchen thermometer, or any thermometer capable of reading temperatures between 30°F and 45°F
4.Volunteers, at least three

with video games
1. Tell the volunteer that you are now going to repeat the test using the other foot, while he or she is playing a video game.

2. Have the volunteer sit down and play a videogame that he or she enjoys for 5 minutes. Use a stopwatch to monitor the time3. When your volunteer has played the video game for at least 5 minutes, spread a towel out on the floor in front of him or her

4.While the volunteer is playing, have the volunteer rest his or her heel of the other foot on the edge of the bowl, then have them dip their toes into the ice water while you start the stopwatch.
No Pain, Lots of Game
scientific background
with video games
Your brain knows there is pain when electrical warning signals are sent from the point of injury or disease all the way to your brain. the electrical signals start when special receptor cells, on the ends of peripheral nerve fibers, identify that injury or damage is taking place.
scientific background
These receptor cells send out their warning signals along the peripheral nerve fibers, which then carry the signal to the dorsal horn of the spinal cord, which is the major highway for relaying signals to the brain. Now with video games are frowned upon by parents as time-wasters, and worse, some education experts think that these games corrupt the brain.

5. Stop the stopwatch when the volunteer removes his or her foot from the ice water. Again, do not let the volunteer keep his or her foot in the water longer than 3 minutes, to prevent cold injury.
Record the time that your volunteer's toes were in the ice water while he or she was playing a videogame in the data table.

6. Repeat Testing the Volunteer When He or She Is Not Distracted and Testing the Volunteer While He or She is Playing a Video Game for your other two volunteers
the end
We conducted an experiment Saturday April 26 and without video games I Elijah Gonzalez was able to hold my feet in the ice water for 1:05, with the video game I was able to hold my feet in for 2:16. My partner Elvis Young was able to without the ice hold his feet in for 26 seconds and with the video game he was able to hold them fo 1:16.
second observation
i Elijah Gonzalez and my partner Elvis young conducted our second observation Saturday may 3, without video games i was able to hold my feet in the ice without video games for 3:05 and with video games i was able to hold in for 3:15
second observation
my partner Elvis was able to without video games hold them in the ice for 37 seconds and with the video games she was able to hold them in there for 3: 17
