Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering consciousness and sleep. I use this for my States of Consciousness Unit in AP Psychology class. It also includes a sleep deprivation quiz.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is guaranteed to capture student attention. Each slide has rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Topics covered include:
states of consciousness
circadian rhythms, the biological clock, and the suprachiasmatic nucleus
quality of sleep, sleep deprivation, and sleep debt
modern sleep theories (protection, recuperation, and growth process)
sleep cycle (REM, NREM1-3, alpha and delta waves, hypnic jerks, sleep spindles, dreams)
