Psychology People!

As you know this Wednesday (2/26) is the Unit 2 Test-
This also means that all of your assignments are due Wednesday (2/26).... please bring them and have them ready to turn in to me or else they are late and I cannot accept them!
Because of time constraints we didn't have time to do a good review in class, so I have made a mini study guide for you to use in preparation for your test-
here is a list of terms and a few concepts that you should be familiar with. This means you should be able to describe/define, give an example and apply it; if you are able to do these 3 things you will do very well on the test :)


Sleep Apnea
Night Terrors
 Circadian Rhythm
Neuron (parts and functions)
Sleep Cycle
Drug Categories
Nervous System(parts/division)

DREAMS & such

Today we talked a lot about dreams/sleep.... I know you had tons of questions about specific dreams that I was unable to answer: DON'T FEAR. Monday we will be interpreting your dreams in class, so hopefully lots of your questions will be answered then! This also means that you need to have your dream journal ready to go by Monday!

Here is the link to the sleepwalking documentary that I told you, you could watch for extra credit:

We also mentioned Lucid Dreaming and how one goes about doing so- this is a website that I found that looked pretty good, if you find something better let me know so I can pass along the information :)

If you haven't done so, start thinking about psychological disorders that you want to do your project on, so you can sign up next class period!
