FINAL POST

All in general, everything I learned in Cognitive Psychology is important but the two concepts that I am really focus on is brain structure and function, as well as long term memory.  With brain structure and function, the human brain is truly a delicate structure.  I see it as the key structure in cognitive function. The most important part of the brain I find very important is the three main segments the human brain develops; which is the forebrain, midbrain, and hindbrain.  As a result of the three segments of the brain, we are able to sleep, swallow, respiration, hear, have bladder control, taste, walk, etc.  There are plenty of actions and movements that help us live our everyday lives because of the three segments.  The brain is the command center of our body functions and without the three brain segments we would not be alive.  It is just amazing how our brain is in control of our lives.  With long term memory, it is important to me because I can recall information, for instance; the information I have to remember for my finals.  Nevertheless, I have two beautiful kids that is 2yrs old (girl) and 5yrs old (boy).  It means everything to me that I can recall, how my pregnancy was, the labor pain that I was put through (lol), when I saw the smile on their face after I gave birth to them, all of their infants days, and the yelling I have to do every morning while getting them ready for school because my 2yr old likes to start fights with my 5yr old (lol). Without my long term memory, I would not remember anything about my two beautiful kids that drives me insane every day.  Some have problems remembering because there are problems with their brain but I am truly bless to see my kids wake up every morning and being able to remember everything about my babies.

How Does the Brain Work? – Human Cognition

This video focuses on neurological brain function.  it discusses how different functions and human behaviors is isolated to particular areas of the brain, along with imaging techniques such as, FMRI.  With imaging techniques, it helps take pictures to see the activity in the brain.

The Mind’s Eye & Internal Imagery

This video describes a guy becoming fully blind and after a while, he accepted it, causing him to focus on other senses, such as; touching and hearing.  Additionally, it talks about comments from other blind individuals.  For instance; a man stating that even though he is blind, he can still see his hands as he type.  In addition to, a blind male stating that even though he can not see, he is a very good visualizer.

Introduction to Brain Structure

This video is a very simple video that describes the different functions of the brain and what they control.  The different functions of the brain includes, cerebrum, cerebellum, brain stem, spinal cord, as well as other functions.  It also describes the different networks of nerves, such as; sight area, touch, motor area, etc.

Morphology in Linguistics

The above video discusses morphology in linguistics describing function words, content words, affixes, etc.  In which it describes morphology words as being divided into two categories, which is function and content words.  It also describes content words as being words for actions, people, attributes, etc.
