So far, the semester has been pretty interesting. I've probably been most interested by the discussion this week about synapses and how our brain works. To think that our entire consciousness and everything about us can really be broken down into small electrical currents moving through cells is mind-boggling.
The fact that the brain has evolved over millions of years into such a precise and delicate part of our bodies, and that we still don't understand all of what goes on is simply amazing.
Overall I think I'm looking forward to just getting a taste of what psychology is during this semester. I'm not a psychology major, and I don't anticipate taking any more classes in psychology, so the format of this course works well for me. Hopefully by the end of the semester I'll have at least a working knowledge of the subject.
