Tell me what you see…….
The Hawaiian Island Chain was formed by volcanic activity. My visit to the Island of Kauai 2008
Scary Handout #1
1. The Frontal Lobe: Personality, Voluntary Movement, Elaboration of Thought
*2. The Temporal Lobe: Hearing (Auditory)
*Beneath the Temporal Lobe (sub cortical) lies the amygdala (stores memories of fear).
3. The Occipital Lobe: Vision
4. The Parietal Lobe: Sensory Integration, Receives Sensory Information (Pain & Temperature)
5. The Cerebellum: Body Movement and Coordination (Involuntary)
The Cerebrum refers to the entire brain.
The Earth’s core is made up of a solid sphere of iron metal and nickel surrounded by a liquid outer core.
The inner core rotates slightly faster than the rest of the Earth producing magnetic forces. Often referred to as a geodynamo.
Sun spots are dark structures on the surface of the sun. They are created by intense magnetic activity.
New images of a colossal sunspot show the chaos and energy on the surface of the sun. The New Solar Telescope in Big Bear Lake, Calif., snapped the closest image ever taken of the sunspot, which is larger than the Earth.
The black fibers are violent jets of energy being thrown from the surface of the star. The fibers are actually jets of energy being ejected from the bright magnetic fields at the surface. “Sunspots” are dark structures on the surface of the sun. They are created by intense magnetic activity.
It is formed from iron oxide and it produces a strong magnetic field.
Neuroscientist Michael Persinger had volunteers wear a special helmet that generated a weak electromagnetic wave pattern.
The electrical activity of the helmet caused “mini-seizures” in the brain’s temporal lobes, which are involved in processing what we see and hear.
Michael Pesinger’s test subjects sensed a supernatural presence in the room while they were wearing these helmets that stimulated their temporal lobes with electromagnetic waves. They also witnessed and experienced other events of paranormal activity.
Variations of instruments used in his experiment:
In “haunted” places researchers have measured strong magnetic fields. These strong magnetic fields most likely affected the temporal lobes of individuals who falsely believed that they had seen ghosts or witnessed other types of paranormal activity.
These fluctuations of magnetic activity may have interacted with the brain, causing hallucinations, dizziness or other mind tricks that can make a person feel as though a house has a “presence.”
What causes these mind-altering local magnetic fluctuations? Answer: It could be anything from magnetic minerals used within the concrete of these dwellings, from minerals in the ground, to sunspots.
1. Forming a hypothesis 2. Predicting: I predict…. 3. Conducting a controlled experiment 4. Collecting data 5. Analyzing data 6. Conclusion 7. Reporting your findings -Was your hypothesis correct or incorrect?
Open your composition book. Write lecture I “The Scientific Method” in your table of contents under your last entry “Ten Unsolved Mysteries of the Brain” Now go to where you left off after you answered questions 1-26 and write today’s agenda which is on the board. Answer the journal question. Copy down the lecture in its entirety.
