My Brain Project

  1. 1. My Brain Project<br />Brianna Kirkpatrick<br />1st Block Psychology<br />
  2. 2. Neurons<br />I’m really at simple math problems like multiplication problems. I have to think fast in order to answer a question like 7x5= 35.<br />A nerve cell that is the basic building block of the nervous system. Neurons are specialized to transmit information throughout the body FAST.<br />
  3. 3. Sensory Cortex<br />I like to YoYo. It’s one of my few hobbies but it does use my sensory cortex. <br />
  4. 4. Visual Cortex/ Angular Gyrus<br />I prefer to read books as well as japanese manga. Some of my favorites include the Inheritance cycle and Naruto. <br />The visual cortex of the brain is that part of the celebral cortex responsible for processing VISUAL information. Located in the occipital lobe.<br />
  5. 5. Wernicke’s Area<br />I listen to a wide variety of music by my favorite groups are OFWGKTA (Odd <br />Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All) and Nirvana.<br /> Is one of the two parts of the two parts of the celebral cortex linked to speech.  It is involved in the understanding of written and spoken language.<br />
  6. 6. Broca’s Area<br />I like talking about my childhood with people. Not that I walk up to someone and just start blabbing about what happened on my 8th birthday but I like to hear about other people’s pasts. <br />Has to do with Speech Production and language.<br />
  7. 7. Thalamus<br />I like to play video games, they take more than 1 sense to do. I have to pay attention and move my fingers as well as listen to the game. (Eyes, Ears, Touch)<br />A small structure at the top of the brainstem that serves as a relay center for sensory information, pain, attention, and alertness.<br />
  8. 8. Reticular Formation<br />Sometimes, just to be mean, my little sister would pout cold water on me to wake me up. That really activated my reticular formation.<br /> A network of nerve cells in the brainstem that are involved in maintaining sleep or wakefulness. (Staying Alert or having to do with Arousal)<br />
  9. 9. Medulla<br />A healthy habit (that I will begin immediantly) that will improve my heart and lungs would be to drink a glass of water every morning. <br />The lowest section of the brainstem (at the top end of the spinal cord); it controls automatic functions including heartbeat, breathing, swallowing, etc.<br />
  10. 10. Pons<br />Something that really relaxes me is a back massage. They make me go straight to sleep.<br />The part of the brainstem that joins the hemispheres of the cerebellum and connects the cerebrum with the cerebellum. Deal primarily with respiration.<br />
  11. 11. Hypothalamus<br />Being in love with the Japanese culture I also love their food. My favorites being Ramen and Sushi.<br />A region in the upper part of the brainstem that acts as a relay to the pituitary gland - it controls body temperature, circadian cycles, sleep, moods, hormonal body processes, hunger, and thirst.<br />
  12. 12. Amygdala<br />I’m afraid of spiders and snakes. They looks gross and really freak me out. Racists really get me heated.<br />A part of the brain (and part of the limbic system) that is used in emotion.<br />
  13. 13. Hippocampus<br />A memory that really stuck out for me was when I was no more than 3 years old at this daycare with my sister. These kids were stealing lunch from me and making fun of me and my sister. I didn’t know what to do and it really stuck out for me because it made me realize that there are some people that are mean in the world for no reason.<br />The hippocampus is the part of the brain that is involved in memory forming, organizing, and storing. Important for storing new memories.<br />
  14. 14. Cerebellum<br />Lately I’ve been playing a lot of paddle ball which I think has to do with my movement skills. I have to pay attention to the ball and try to keep the paddle as flat as possible while staying still.<br />The part of the brain below the back of the cerebrum. It regulates balance, posture, movement, and muscle coordination.<br />
  15. 15. Pituitary Gland<br />6th grade year I like to think I grew a lot mentally. Learning new more complex subjects, learning how to be organized, and meeting different types of people then I was used to. <br />A gland attached to the base of the brain that secretes hormones. “Master Gland”<br />
  16. 16. Hormones<br />Going to Scarowinds every year gives me some what of an Adrenaline Rush if getting the crap scared out of you counts.<br />Is a chemical released by a cell or a gland in one part of the body that sends out messages that affect cells in other parts of the organism.<br />
  17. 17. Plasticity<br />I think I’m pretty good with computers. I know more than basic computer knowledge.<br />2 things I want to get better at:<br />Programming in JAVA <br />I would like to know to get better at Photoshop.<br /> In a year or two my brain will probably look different because my I will probably be more Left Brain dominant because I prefer math and technical things.<br />
