AP PSYCH - States of Consciousness
Terms in this set (59)
the theory that dreams result from the brain's attempt to make sense of random neural signals that fire during sleep
compulsive drug craving and use.
the most frequently used and abused CNS depressant in most cultures; its use affects mood, judgment, cognition, and reaction time
the relatively slow brain waves of a relaxed, awake state.
drugs that stimulate neural activity, causing speeded-up body functions and associated energy and mood changes.
drugs that depress the activity of the central nervous system, reducing anxiety but impairing memory and judgment.
brain-wave pattern associated with alert wakefulness.
absence of activity or response to stimuli.
Seeing familiar people and experiences, usually close family or friends, as unfamiliar or imposters. This is a very rare condition. The opposite of Deja vu
a state of deep and often prolonged unconsciousness, produces a slow steady rate of activity and no response to stimuli
the biological clock; regular bodily rhythms (for example, of temperature and wakefulness) that occur on a 24-hour cycle.
our awareness of ourselves and our environment.
feeling of uncanny familiarity with a strange person, new place or event, , illusion of visual recognition in which a new situation is incorrectly regarded as a repetition of a previous memory
the large, slow brain waves associated with deep sleep.
being abnormally tolerant to and dependent on something that is psychologically or physically habit-forming (especially alcohol or narcotic drugs)
drugs (such as alcohol, barbiturates, and opiates) that reduce neural activity and slow body functions.
a split in consciousness, which allows some thoughts and behaviors to occur simultaneously with others.
a sequence of images, emotions, and thoughts passing through a sleeping person's mind.
the presumption that mind and body are two distinct entities that interact.
a synthetic stimulant and mild hallucinogen. Produces euphoria and social intimacy, but with short-term health risks and longer-term harm to serotonin-producing neurons and to mood and cognition.
animals have evolved to sleep as much as is safe and doesn't interfere with their needs
Franz Anton Mesmer
Austrian philosopher and physician who used magnets on individuals to put them in a trance-like state to get the "universal fluids" back into balance in the body. Came up with idea of "animal magnatism"
false sensory experiences, such as seeing something in the absence of an external visual stimulus.
psychedelic ("mind-manifesting") drugs, such as LSD, that distort perceptions and evoke sensory images in the absence of sensory input.
sleep disorder in which a person gets excessive sleep and is still not refreshed.
a state that resembles sleep but that is induced by suggestion
sleep abnormality, including difficulty in falling asleep and wakefulness through the night
according to Freud, the underlying meaning of a dream
a powerful hallucinogenic drug; also known as acid (lysergic acid diethylamide).
according to Freud, the remembered story line of a dream
method of inducing a calm, relaxed state through the use of special techniques.
a powerfully addictive drug that stimulates the central nervous system, with speeded-up body functions and associated energy and mood changes; over time, appears to reduce baseline dopamine levels.
the presumption that mind and body are different aspects of the same thing.
sleep disorder characterized by sudden and uncontrollable episodes of deep sleep
an altered state of consciousness reported after a traumatic event (such as through cardiac arrest); often similar to drug-induced hallucinations.
theory that dreams reflect everyday waking thoughts and emotions.
a sleep disorder characterized by high arousal and an appearance of being terrified; more intense than nightmares
opium and its derivatives, such as morphine and heroin; they depress neural activity, temporarily lessening pain and anxiety.
REM when muscles are deeply relaxed but there are high levels of brain activity
sleep disorders in which physiological functioning or behavior during sleep is disturbed. ex. nightmares, might terrors
an addiction in which the body develops a chemical need for a drug
a chemical substance that alters perceptions and mood.
an addiction in which a person believes that they need a drug in order to feel good/ function normally
a device that measures sleep stages using a combination of EEG and eye-movement records.
a suggestion, made during a hypnosis session, to be carried out after the subject is no longer hypnotized; used by some clinicians to help control undesired symptoms and behaviors.
increased motor cortex activity prior to the start of a movement
the tendency for REM sleep to increase following REM sleep deprivation (created by repeated awakenings during REM sleep).
rapid eye movement sleep, a recurring sleep stage during which vivid dreams commonly occur. Also known as paradoxical sleep, because the muscles are relaxed (except for minor twitches) but other body systems are active.
periodic, natural, reversible loss of consciousness
a sleep disorder characterized by temporary cessations of breathing during sleep and repeated momentary awakenings.
short bursts of brain waves (increased frequency) detected in stage 2 sleep
drugs (such as caffeine, nicotine, and the more powerful amphetamines, cocaine, and Ecstasy) that excite neural activity and speed up body functions.
suprachiasmic nucleus ("SCN".)
tiny structure at the base of the brain is essentially the body's "clock." It controls the sleep-wake cycle in part by regulating the secretion of melatonin by the pineal gland.
the major active ingredient in marijuana; triggers a variety of effects, including mild hallucinations.
the diminishing effect with regular use of the same dose of a drug, requiring the user to take larger and larger doses before experiencing the drug's effect.
limited response to stimuli but no purposeful activity.
the discomfort and distress that follow discontinuing the use of an addictive drug.
sleep-inducing hormone that is produced in the pineal gland; controls our circadian rhythms
A psychologist who believed that hypnosis worked only on the immediate conscious mind of a person. He also believed that there is a hidden part of the mind (the hidden observer) that is very much aware of the hypnotic subjects activities and sensations.
