Втзприятието на човешкият мозък

BY KRISTINA RACHEVA
@ VOL 3 ON NOV 26, 2016

Кристина Рачева ще ни представи тема, свързана с визуализацията на човешкия мозък. Ще ни разкаже два експеримента свързани с тях и едно свое наблюдение за това как чувствата влияят отрицателно на трезвата мисъл.

Мозъкът е орган, който контролира функциите на организма.

Първият експеримент се нарича Гумена ръка и включва сетивата зрение и осезание и ни представя как човешкият мозък може да бъде заблуден чрез визуализацията.

Вторият експеримент доказва малко известният факт, че децата чуват по-добре от възрастните. Диапазонът на чуване на детското ухо е действително по-широк.

Последната част от темата, свързана с емоциите представя с други думи конфликтът между мозъкът и сърцето. Кристина Рачева ще разкаже своето виждане за това.
