CNS brain activities

  1. 1. Central Nervous System Brain Related ActivitiesChapter 48 page 1042-1051
  2. 2. Visuospatial TestsWhat is the missing number in the following sequence? 13 7 18 10 5 ? 9 1 12 6
  3. 3. Visuospatial Tests Of the groups of images, which does not belong?
  4. 4. Visuospatial TestsCount the number of triangles or squares.
  5. 5. Visuospatial TestsThe geometric figure below can be divided with one straight line into two parts that will fit together to make a perfect square. The dividing line must connect which 2 points?
  6. 6. Visuospatial TestsThe design on the left is made up of three paper squares of different sizes, one on top of the other. Assuming the squares are opaque and cannot be folded or otherwise altered, what is the minimum number of squares needed to create the design on the right?
  7. 7. Visuospatial TestsFold the top image into a 3-D cube.Which of the bottom images represents the correctly folded object?
  8. 8. Activity 1: Short-term memoryChunking Strategy If you chunk the 14 letters into 6 chunks, it is easy to keep all the letters in your short term memory: X IBM SAT MTV PHD X
  9. 9. Activity 2: Encoding Memories Time your partner’s ability to name all the months of the year Repeat but this time name all the months in alphabetical order Both questions ask you to use your memory to retrieve known information. Why is one way faster than the other?
  10. 10. Activity 3: Category Pairs Subject listens as partner reads out a list of category-word pairs Subject then writes down the words remembered Once finished, partner checks the list and note the missing words. Partner will now give a hint by naming the category of the word
  11. 11. Activity 3: Category PairsList ACategory WordA metal SilverA precious stone PearlA relative NieceA bird CanaryType of reading material JournalA military title MajorA colour VioletA four-legged animal MouseA piece of furniture Dresser
  12. 12. Activity 3: Category Pairs Switch roles to do a second list
  13. 13. Activity 3: Category PairsList BCategory WordA part of the body FingerA fruit CherryA type of dwelling MansionAn alcoholic beverage BrandyAn occupation PlumberA sport LacrosseAn article of clothing SweaterA musical instrument SaxophoneAn insect Wasp
  14. 14. Activity 3: Category PairsThought questions Can your partner now remember the word that was forgotten? Was the forgotten word in the memory? What could this tell us about what people mean when they have forgotten something?
  15. 15. Activity 4: Meaning and recall The next slides have lists of 20 words Try to memorize each list You will have 30 seconds to look at each slide
  16. 16. Activity 4: Meaning and recallList of Concrete words Alligator  Hammer Apple  House Arrow  Lemon Baby  Microscope Bird  Ocean Book  Pencil Butterfly  Rock Car  Shoes Corn  Table Flower  Window
  17. 17. Activity 4: Meaning and recall Write down the words
  18. 18. Activity 4: Meaning and recallList of Abstract words Anger  Honor Belief  Hope Boredom  Idea Chance  Interest Concept  Knowledge Effort  Mercy Fate  Mood Freedom  Moral Glory  Theory happiness  Truth
  19. 19. Activity 4: Meaning and recall Write down the words
  20. 20. Activity 4: Meaning and recallList of Nonsense words Ator  Leptav Botam  Lumal Crov  Mib Difim  Natpem Firap  Payrim Glimoc  Rispaw Gricul  Stiwin Hilnim  Tubiv Jolib  Vopec Kepwin  Yapib
  21. 21. Activity 4: Meaning and recall Write down the words
  22. 22. Activity 4: Meaning and recallThought question Whichlist is the easiest to memorize? How does this apply to studying?
  23. 23. Activity 5: Distractions & recall One partner will read out 20 words The subject will try to remember them After the reading is done, the subject is to count backs from 100 by threes (e.g. 100, 97, 94, 91 etc.) for 15-30 seconds The subject will then write down the words from the list
  24. 24. Activity 5: Distractions & recallWord List Cat  King Apple  Hammer Ball  Milk Tree  Fish Square  Book Head  Tape house  Arrow Door  Flower Box  Key Car  Shoe
  25. 25. Activity 5: Distractions & recallThought question Which words were forgotten? Does the placement of the word in the list affect ability to recall after a distraction?
  26. 26. Activity 6: Visual memory Subject will be given a diagram to look at for 10 seconds. Subject will try to memorize the objects in the diagram. Subject will be given a new diagram with one of the objects missing. Subject is to identify the missing object. There are 3 sets of diagrams that get progressively more difficult.
  27. 27. Activity 6: Visual memoryDiagram 1a
  28. 28. Activity 6: Visual memoryDiagram 1b
  29. 29. Activity 6: Visual memoryDiagram 2a

  33. 33. Activity 6: Visual memoryDiagram 4a
  34. 34. Activity 6: Visual memoryDiagram 4b
  35. 35. Activity 6: Visual memoryThought questions What techniques did you use to try to remember objects? How well you do as the number of objects increased? Did the number of objects affect how long it took for you to identify the missing object? Did the positions of the objects affect how long it took for you to identify the missing object?
