Recitation Sections Learning Objectives
Recitation Section #9 (States of Consciousness and Personality) \u2013 March 29-30th
Homework #8 (homework questions are highlighted)
1. Do you think that dogs, cats, and horses have conscious awareness the way that

we do? Are they aware of being aware?
2. What are the four types of biological rhythm? Give an example of each.
3. How does light adjust our circadian clock?
4. What\u2019s the difference between an alpha wave, a delta wave, and a sleep spindle?
5. What stage of sleep is associated with being abducted by aliens? Why?
6. What\u2019s the relationship between dreaming and having an erection? What\u2019s the

relationship between dreaming and snoring?
7. What\u2019s the relationship between Stage 4 and REM during a night\u2019s sleep?
8. What is sleep debt?
9. What are some risks associated with sleep deprivation?
10. Why is sleepwalking rare after age 40?
11. What is sleep apnea? Why is it becoming more common in the United States?
12. Name four possible reasons why we need to sleep.
13. Name four possible reasons why we dream.
14. In some countries, such as Britain, the school day for teenagers runs from about

9:00 am to 4:00 pm. In other countries, such as the United States, the teen school
day often runs from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, or even 7:30 am to 2:30 pm. Early to
rise isn\u2019t making kids wise, critics say \u2013 it\u2019s making them sleepy. For optimal
alertness and well-being, teens need 8 to 9 hours of sleep a night. So, should
early-start schools move to a later start time? Or, is this impractical, and would it
do little to remedy the tired-teen problem?

15. Define personality. How would you describeyour personality?
16. Describe Freud\u2019s view of the mind as an iceberg. Explain how he used this image
to represent conscious and unconscious regions of the mind.
