Hello, my name is Casey. I am a sophomore majoring in computer science. Before this course I had taken a psychology course in high school so I knew some idea going in what was going to be gone over. The reason I am taking this course is one because the brain and how it operates interests me quite a bit. Also I needed the credits as well so I thought it was a win win situation. When I hear the word psychology I usually think about a person, I think of the nervous system, specifically the brain and brain stem. Then I also think about how a person works and the decisions they make and why they make them. As stated before one topic that will be covered that I have interest in is the brain both on a micro and macro scale. I also look forward to personality disorders/mental illnesses. I always find it intriguing to read and learn about each. What I will not be looking forward to are the topics of chemicals and consciousness, emotions and personality theories. I just genuinely don’t find these helpful/interesting to me. Taking this course I hope to answer the question of why we think the way we do.
