Contains a PowerPoint presentation covering the topics of consciousness and sleep. This PP can be used for a Psychology or AP Psychology class.
The PowerPoint is HIGHLY animated and is designed to capture student attention. Each slide has transitions along with rich, moving media. Additionally, a guided note sheet is included in the zip file to help students follow along with the presentation.
Please note that the fonts "Prissy Frat Boy" and "Eurostile" are used in these documents. If your computer does not have these fonts installed, it will automatically replace them with a default font, which will cause it to look different than the screenshots indicated and require you to re-format the slides.
Please also note that this PowerPoint may contain links to outside websites or videos for additional content to expand upon topics. At the time of this posting, all links have been verified and are working, but I cannot predict when web addresses may change or be removed. If you notice a link not working, please let me know and I will rectify it.
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)
