Biopsychological, Intelligence, Memory
CASE STUDY
The client interviewed by my classmate was Stanley Miller, a fifty-eight-year-old white divorced man, with four children, two boys and two girls. He attended catholic and vocational schools, and later joined the Air force for two years as an Army National guard. He is a graduate with associate degree and was once employed as a social worker with Charles Belavia though he is unemployed now and supports himself through Collect VA disability. Mr. Miller has been divorced for the last nineteen years, rarely sees his family. Stanley currently lives alone, in New York (N. Syracuse NY); he feels a lonely at times, is spiritual, but not religious. At times he forgets things that he knows that are very important to remember.
His extended family consists of his two sisters and mother, as his father passed away when he was thirty-eight. He talks to his mother on a weekly basis through the phone, but rarely does talk with his sisters. In his youthful years, he got involved in community activities especially church activities as he worked for the carnival and at the same time, sang in the church choir. He always thought that there was something missing in his life. He still thinks there is something that is missing and gives continuous thoughts about this missing piece daily.

Here is a link to information about locked-in syndrome, which is terrifying and

Here is a link to information about locked-in syndrome, which is terrifying and fascinating. (but not in our text). Based on this table and our text,
a) What is the difference between brain death and coma?
b) Why is the minimally conscious state considered a higher stage of consciousness than the vegetative state?
c) Once brain activity ceases, why do you think physicians test for brain activity again 24 hours later before pronouncing brain death?
d) Why is locked-in syndrome terrifying to patients?
2. What two things does a polysomnograph record?
3. The stages of sleep are human-created distinctions among the recordings you see on a polysomnograph record. In other words, humans decided which type/pattern of waves indicated relaxation, Stage 1, Stage 2, etc. You’re expected to be able to describe the brain waves associated with each stage. Record your descriptions below. Words to include: the waves’ voltage (how tall are they?), frequency (how much space is between the waves), how they compare to other stages, special features of that stage, etc. Also, what would you look for to identify that stage in records like those included in Fig. 8.11.
Stages 1-4 are considered non-REM (NREM):
a) Stage 1
b) Stage 2
c) Stage 3
d) Stage 4
And then there is REM:
e) REM
4. And some questions about the stages, taken together:
a) Why are Stage 3 and Stage 4 sometimes combined into one stage called slow-wave sleep (SWS)?
b) Why is REM also called paradoxical sleep?
c) How would you know that a person is in REM sleep?
d) Study Figure 8.12. During which part of the night is REM most prevalent? During which part of the night is SWS most prevalent?
Part 2a – Brain Structures in Sleep and Wakefulness
Summarize the important details about the following brain structures involved in wakefulness:
1. pontomesencephalon:
neurons here get input from _______________ and they are also spontaneously active (without input)
neurons here send output to 3 forebrain areas: ________________, _________________, ___________________
neurotransmitters __________ and _____________ are released from pontomesencephalon cell axon terminals onto neurons in these 3 forebrain areas—does that cause excitation or inhibition?
the 2 roles of the pontomesencephalon relative to arousal are:
2. locus coeruleus:
neurons here are excited by ______________ events that produce _______________ arousal
these neurons send output all over the _____________
this output causes 2 things to happen to the activity of cortical cells:
in terms of functioning, 2 things are enhanced by locus coeruleus activity:
3. hypothalamus:
some of these neurons release histamine as their neurotransmitter—what does it do in the brain?
others of these neurons release orexin (hypocretin) as their neurotransmitter—what does it do in the brain?
do we need orexin to wake up? do we need orexin to stay awake?
4. basal forebrain:
neurons here send axons to 2 brain areas:
they release the neurotransmitter __________________ which (increases or decreases?) _______________ arousal
when this NT is released, what is the effect on cognition?
Summarize information about the role of these brain areas in sleep:
5. thalamus:
what happens to the polarization of neurons in the thalamus during sleep?
how does that influence their sending of sensory information to the cortex?
6. axons that release GABA as their neurotransmitter:
how does their activity change during sleep?
what is the impact of that change on communication among neurons?
how does it affect the sleeping person’s response to stimulation?
what is local sleep, and how could it account for sleep walking?
And finally regarding REM sleep,
Which 2 brain areas show increased activity during REM?
Which 3 areas of the cortex show decreased activity during REM?
Which 2 areas of the cortex show increased activity during REM?
What are PGO waves?
How does acetylcholine affect REM?
How do serotonin and norepinephrine affect REM?
Part 2b – Sleep Disorders
Briefly describe what happens in the brain when a person experiences the following sleep disorders, as well as their symptoms:
1. sleep apnea
2. narcolepsy
3. REM behavior disorder
Part 3a – Important Functions of Sleep
In the table below, list the functions of sleep (why we do it) based on what is said in four sources: Sleep & Dream (video 10:40), The Science of Sleep (video 18:20), Why Sleep is Critical for the Body and Brain (video 14:11), and chapter 8 of our text. (There are links to the videos in the Overview page of the module.)
Some functions are mentioned in several of the 4 sources; others may be mentioned in only one. Make sure to listen carefully so that your table will be complete.
Functions of Sleep
Sleep & Dream
Science of Sleep
Why Sleep is Critical
Text Chapter 8
Supports growth
yes
yes
yes
no
Now study your table. Based on what you have gleaned from these four sources, what would you consider the most important function of sleep? Justify your choice.
Part 3b – Biological Basis of Dreaming
1. How does the activation-synthesis hypothesis explain dreaming? According to this idea, what is going on in the brain when we dream?
2. How does the clinic-anatomical hypothesis explain dreaming? According to this idea, what is going on in the brain when we dream?
3. The video Sleep & Dream describes two biological perspectives on dreaming, the “physiological function” theory and the “REM triggers neural activity” theory. How do these relate to the activation-synthesis hypothesis and the clinic-anatomical hypothesis? Are they completely different theories? Are they the same, just with different names? Explain.

In your responses to my colleague post, comment on the limitations or strengths

In your responses to my colleague post, comment on the limitations or strengths of language in terms of different types of communication present in professional settings. For example, how would the limitations or potential improvements your peer has mentioned play out in email or text communication?
My Colleague post:
I believe that language can both promote and limit communication among people in professional settings. Language is a vital tool to communication and although verbal language is the most common, sign language is also incredibly common and vital to everyday communication. When people choose to expand their language skills, such as learning a new language, it can help them communicate with new people all over the world. This opens lines of communication that weren’t previously open and can severely promote growth in professional settings. When it comes to limitations, lack of expanding knowledge on language can cause a decrease in communication. This limits growth in professional settings which creates lack of communication.

**How to move Annotated Bibliography content into the Week 6 assignment
Introduction
First provide an Introduction paragraph, introducing the reader the overall topic that connects your five studies (one standard 5-7 sentence paragraph).
Review of the Literature
Then you will paste the week 4 summaries AS IS and break the summary content into TWO standard 5-7 sentence paragraphs. The first paragraph ends after the analysis content.
The second paragraph includes findings, implications and transition and connections to the next study.
**Remember that you are not simply adding the annotated bibliography content to your Week 6 assignment. You are not just telling the reader the focus of the next study. Provide a reader with an understanding of how the studies are similar or different in methodology (qualitative or quantitative, purpose, participants, data collection and analysis, etc as applicable to the findings, etc), compare and contrast the study content, inform a reader of how the studies are connected, how findings were extended, or findings were refuted.
Do not start a sentence with the researcher’s last name, add leading words such as:
To begin,
In the first study,
To start
In a related study,
in a similar study,
To illustrate this point
To further gather data on this topic,
In support of the previous findings,
In the following study,
Unlike the previously study,
As compared to the previous study,
In the next study,
In this study,
In the final study,
In the last study,
Finally,
Lastly,
In discussing the study findings in several sentences, restate simply for a reader using terms like:
In other words
As such
simply put
simply said
what this means is
meaning that
This shows that
That is
Overall
This suggested
Summary
Finally, wrap the five summaries up with a Summary Paragraph with a sentence regarding the overall focus of the summaries followed by one finding statement with the associated citation from each study at the end of the sentence in parenthesis, Combine findings and citations when possible if findings were related (one standard 5-7 sentence paragraph)
See this link with examples of tmini introductions and summaries from student Capstone papers for an example of what mini section summaries look like. The mini summaries are at the bottom of the page. Your summary is not in this exact format (follow directions above)
