The aspect of psychology that will stick with me for the rest of my life is consciousness. For me, this was the most interesting topic covered this semester. Sleep and dreaming seemed so mysterious before learning the information throughout the course. I was very fascinated by all the different sleep disorders such as narcolepsy, sleepwalking, and night terrors. My sister has had the occasional occurrence of sleepwalking and it was always assumed by my family and I that she must be acting out a dream she had. I was interested to find out that sleepwalking almost always occurs in a non-REM stage of sleeping. I also enjoyed learning about the more bizarre pieces of consciousness like hallucinations, deja vu, and out-of-body experiences. I have had an out-of-body experience multiple times and never really understood much about them, so I was very intrigued by the topic. I think another reason why consciousness was so interesting to me is because things like sleep and dreaming are experienced by everyone, yet they aren't things that a lot of people know much about. Consciousness is definitely a topic I will keep with me for a very long time and will continue to search for more knowledge about it.
