Psychology

Psychologists have discovered that human beings experience several  different states of consciousness during the course of a day. For  example, people have times when they are especially alert and times when  they are awake but not alert, often called “daydreaming.” Also, while  people are asleep, they experience different stages of sleep, each  characterized by different patterns of brain and bodily activity.

In  a multi-paragraph essay, discuss the different states of consciousness  that you have experienced in the past 24 hours, including any periods  when you were asleep, alert, or “daydreaming.” Be sure to describe both  the brain and bodily activity you experienced during each state of  consciousness. Include information from class materials, readings, and  research on states of consciousness to support your discussion.
