Memory Lecture - YouTube

This PowerPoint covers the memory chapter.
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

mittsel- memory is learning we retain over a long period of time. Sensory memory is immediate and very brief. encoding-->storage--->retrieval. some encoding is automatically processed; other requires attention and effort. spacing effect is that we retain information better by rehearsing it over time. serial positioning is when we recall the first and last items of a list. recognition- ex: multiple choice test     Recall- ex: fill in the blank     Relearning- easier the second time around and faster.   Retroactive interference: sleeping on it will help you recall it after said sleep.

Teens and Sleep

Teens and Sleep | AP Psychology | Scoop.it
Is your teen getting enough sleep? The answer might be different than you think. Learn more about your teen's sleeping needs.
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

Sleep is food for the brain. During sleep, important body functions and brain activity occur. Skipping sleep can be harmful — even deadly, particularly if you are behind the wheel. You can look bad, you may feel moody, and you perform poorly. Sleepiness can make it hard to get along with your family and friends and hurt your scores on school exams, on the court or on the field. Remember: A brain that is hungry for sleep will get it, even when you don’t expect it. For example, drowsiness and falling asleep at the wheel cause more than 100,000 car crashes every year. When you do not get enough sleep, you are more likely to have an accident, injury and/or illness.

Biological Issues Related to Emotional/Behavioral Disorders | Education.com | AP Psychology | Scoop.it
This article looks in depth at he biological issues related to emotional/behavioral disorders, including genetics, psychoneurology, and environmental factors.
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

The consideration of biological issues related to emotional/behavioral disorders is the basis of the biophysical perspective. This view of the individual emphasizes neurologic and other organic factors as the cause of behavior. If the cause of behavior is organic, then it would folllow that the ways of dealing with emotional/behavioral disorders would include nutrition, medication, and other medical interventions.

Lecture 2: Thinking Critically With Psychology - YouTube

Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

Mittsel's summary: Hindsight bias is the "I knew it all along" phenomenon. Overconfidence makes us think we know more than we actually do. Critical thinkers don't blindly accept arguments and conclusions. Theories --->Hypothesis--->Research and Observations. Specific attitudes and behaviors vary across cultures. Study of animals gives us understanding of many behaviors that may have common biology across animals and humans.

Lesson 01 What Is Psychology - YouTube

Udacity Introduction to Psychology The Science of Thought and Behavior
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

"Lesson 01" is all about describing psychology and placing it into its many different fields or sub-fields. It describes how each field is different to each other in how they ask questions, but without them together, we'll never get a total picture.It doesn't cover history, but does go over most else about psychology and including definitions.

Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

Hank brings in odd analogies, cartoons, and hidden puns for this Introduction of Psychology. :)  In the video wonderland that is Youtube, two brothers come together to inform the masses. Reminding everyone to be awesome seems also to be the main theme. Overall, Hank and John Green do several brief social-cultural themed lectures on CrashCourse, but Psychology is what we’re sticking with today! Covering Psychology’s derivatives with the initial psychologists and questions, Hank Green conveys the ‘melting pot’ that is our thoughts about thinking. Specifically types of outlooks used in the study are chronologically explained in this video, along with the semantics of ‘psychology’. It turns out to be very complex, honestly.  With a long road ahead of us and the basics to behind us, the following months may leave us repeating Hank’s question ‘Maybe  our brains are just too complex to understand themselves?’, but I feel that knowledge has nowhere to go but up. If that means bigger texts books in our future, time to start lifting weights everybody. -Alaina

Operant Conditioning

Operant Conditioning | AP Psychology | Scoop.it
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

The first thing I want you to understand is that your life is dictated by operant conditioning, so it will be easier for you to understand than classical conditioning.  Operant Conditioning is the concept hat you can change someone’s behavior by giving them rewards or punishing them.  Let’s pretend that you HATE cleaning your room (it’s a big stretch here I am sure).  Your parents give you $50 every time you clean your room.  Will this change your behavior?  Sure, you will have a REALLY clean room.  But will this change your feelings about cleaning the room?  Probably not, you may clean it more, but you will not enjoy it any more than before you received the money.  Thus, operant conditioning can change your behavior without changing the way you feel inside; a perfect fit for the behavioral school.

New Research on Sensation and Perception From Psychological Science - Association for Psychological Science

New Research on Sensation and Perception From Psychological Science - Association for Psychological Science | AP Psychology | Scoop.it
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

Recognizing different types of behaviors is essential for an animal’s survival. In this study, researchers examined if and how pigeons classify actions by training them to discriminate among walking and running animal models. Pigeons’ knowledge of movement in one animal transferred into knowledge of movement in models of other animals. Additionally, pigeons’ movement discrimination abilities remained intact even when the direction of the movement was reversed and the speed of the movement altered. However, inverting the images of the animal models, using static pictures of the models, or randomizing the order of the picture frames used to represent movement eliminated pigeons’ movement discrimination abilities. These findings suggest that pigeons discriminated the different behaviors by recognizing the animal’s sequence of movements over time, indicating that pigeons can categorize motion-based behavioral actions.

AP Psych Unit 3A Lecture - YouTube

Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

MITTZEL- humans have a biopsychosocial system. Phrenology was developed by Fraz Gall; the bumps on your skull tell your personality. There are sensory, motor, and interneurons. In the neurons there are dendrites, axons, myelin sheaths, and terminal branches. The speed of a neuron impulse is 2 to 200MPH. Communication takes place through the synapse. Endocrine makes fight or flight responses.

What Is the Placebo Effect?

What Is the Placebo Effect? | AP Psychology | Scoop.it
You might often hear about placebo effects, but do you know what these responses are and what causes them? Discover what researchers have learned.
Kate Rieland Grayson's insight:

The Placebo Theory refers to the phenomenon in which people experiences some type of benefit after the administration of a placebo. A placebo is a substance with no known medical effects. So a placebo is like the controlled group of the experiment.
