I think in order to receive information from the environment we are equipped with sense of organs such as eyes, ears, and nose. Each sense of organs is part of a sensory system which receives sensory inputs and transmits sensory information to the brain, and it somehow converted into perceptions of things into sights, sounds, smells, taste and touch experiences. However, we perceive objects in two different ways, depends on our senses and experiences. Bottom up processing is when expectation is based mental processing that influenced by our senses such as seeing, feeling, tasting, hearing and smelling. Top down processing is when expectation is based on our previous knowledge and experience that allows us to better perceive an object. When I was young, we used to have three cats at home and my mother told me a funny story about how my experience seeing a cat was. She said that as soon as I saw the cat, I started to cry and yell, “Please mommy I will be very good from now on, please don’t give me to this hairy monster.” She explained that it wasn’t a monster and it called a cat. My previous experience of what it means to be a cat help me to faster and better perceive that object as a small friendly pet with pointy ears and meows. Also, whenever I feel weird tickle or itch on my body, I started to scream and slap the spot, because it feels like some kind of nasty insect is crawling on my body. However, when I see a spider walking on my arm, I just blow it off without…
Psychological association proclaimed that the disease is of one’s own body.

But in pure opinion addiction, if can be diagnosed; then it shouldn’t be classified as a disease. In order to stop something, the person must have will power too successfully overcome the addiction.…
conflict and political agendas. As noted by the author in chpt. 5, neither one of the propaganda illustrations for abolitionists or proslavery southerners were forthright. They both had their shortcomings and were skewed to sway people to their own opinions. In figure 5.6, an illustration drawn by George Cruikshank, a man who never visited America but was told of Scipio’s story, drew his rendition of these evets. In this illustration we see many contrasting subjects. First off we see the slave Scipio…

In my honest opinion the whole protest was incredible. I never knew about the school or the protest until we learned about it in class. They had the right to protest for a president who was deaf and knew sign to communicate with the students and participate in events with the school. I was very shocked on how violent it got and how quickly it escalated. It was pretty powerful for me that Congress even got involve with the whole situation. I never excepted…

Psychology, according to textbooks, is the scientific study of mental functions and behaviors. This is, to me, as simple as it goes when it comes to defining the term psychology. Although, one can also say, that psychology is an application of what you know and can do in order to get what you want. It's almost, one can say, a manipulation of others and of one's surroundings in order to make one's way into the world. I think that study of psychology is an essential way of getting to know the…
cooperate with the group that is committing the torture acts. No one deserves to have these lasting effects placed upon them against their will.
Seeing pictures and videos from the media and news have been one of the main factors that have shaped my opinion about the use and acts of torture. Such acts of torture being exposed have made a negative impact on society. Seeing disturbing pictures from the media and news made me feel sorry for the prisoners being tortured, even if they had committed crimes…

Opinion Paper #2
Should gun manufactures be held responsible in deaths that are caused by their products?
Gun manufactures should certainly not be held responsible for any crimes committed using their product for many reasons. These manufactures do not encourage, nor help commit these crimes that individuals decide to commit. For someone to say that gun manufactures should be held responsible for the deaths committed by their product is non-sense. People make their own decisions…
