First blog post

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.

  1. Welcome to the course Casey. We will consistently be tying what we’re learning back to what’s going on in the brain so I think you’ll like that part of the class. Hopefully we’ll be able to extend what you learned in your high school class and give you some insights into how our thought patterns emerge.
