    Truant Mail The first I ever heard about the University of Alabama’s Neuroscience program was from a letter a woman I barely knew claimed was mine. This letter (Sent after a 2012 Big 10 Expo) had fallen into the wrong hands, thanks to the mailman and had travelled great distances from mailbox F to mailbox G. Serendipity I thought, after warily accepting my truant mail (lest it was another bill), as said letter offered a unique program tailored to fit my interests before my search for graduate…

    words, micro expressions only exist in a blink of an eye that human couldn’t capture. Furthermore, human ways of interaction are deeply connected to emotions and function through a system of “social signals: facial expressions” (Jack, Caldara, and Schyns 19). Thus, it is quite reasonable to begin to infer that emotions is closely related to micro expressions, and there is a positive correlation between these two variables to make them connected. This means that when the consistency of emotions…

    worries and stress can take over their brain in a way because it is able to decrease how well a person can think or focus. It is clear that poverty can impact a person’s cognitive capacity negatively. Along with poverty also comes malnutrition. If you are able to help a child relieve their malnutrition it is possible to lessen the effect of poverty in that child’s physical and cognitive development.

    One of the most important yet least commonly considered questions is where would we be without our brain? We tend to forget that without our brains controlling every aspect of our lives, we would be nothing more than a frame of bones decorated with skin. Our brains provide us with our personalities, intelligence, thoughts, dreams, and so much more. For something so giving, the least we can do is care for our brain as much as it cares for us. However, sometimes that is harder than it seems. As a…

    Take a moment and look back on a memory that you would rather forget. Maybe you are picturing a relationship that ended badly, or perhaps the death of a family member. Maybe you are remembering a traumatic incident in your past, or maybe you are a war veteran trying not to relive the horrors of war. Regardless of the memory you have recalled, it is likely that, at some point in your life, you have come across one of these painful memories and wished there was a way to erase them from your mind.…

    He backed up his theory with by relating it with developmental psychology and observation. What do we see that children do that 's really good and that 's better than adults? And I think one answer, for instance, is language. That is one of the reasons why children are better at learning language than adults, because that 's the main task of childhood. “By the time you 're an adult, you had better know a language and there 's not much evolutionary pressure to wire up your brain to learn more,…
