Hi again everyone! Sorry this post is a bit late... but better late than never! Wow, time sure has flown by! I can't believe that this is my last research round of the year! Anyways, I hope you all enjoy as I wrap up my subject regarding life on earth as I study the habitable zones of galaxies, as well as how different types of galaxies might be able to support life. First, if you haven't read my previous post, I highly suggest going back and checking it out as most if not all of this post's...Read More...

Hey again everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! For this round of research, with the information that I have compiled from my last post, I will be looking at the factors that make a planet inhabitable on a galactic scale, and at what kinds of galaxies we have observed today. Is there a certain kind of galaxy that produces the optimal conditions for life to develop? In order to answer this question, we first must ask ourselves a rather rudimentary one: what is a galaxy? A galaxy,...Read More...

Hi everyone! Sorry this round is a bit late; I've been having some technical difficulties! For this first round of research of this brand new cycle, I will be providing some background information which will hopefully make my future, more complex installments more comprehensive and cohesive. So, what is it about Earth that makes life on this planet possible? Well, first of all, Earth is the only planet in the solar system with an atmosphere that can sustain life. The blanket of gases not...Read More...

Hey everyone! For my third topic of inquiry, " How are people with developmental disabilities affected emotionally?", I wanted to choose a subject which was more socially focused, and less scientifically inclined like my previous topics had been. Once again, I had no idea what I would find, and once again, the results of my research shocked me. I have always known that individuals with developmental disabilities have been discriminated against for generations, but I never knew what that...Read More...

Hi everyone! For this fifth round of research, I will be looking into how different cultural communities support individuals with developmental disabilities, expanding on my research surrounding the stigma of developmental disorder across the world, and how it affects the treatment of these people and their families. Of course, it should be noted this information consists greatly of generalization, and we should not make assumptions about the needs of a family based on their cultural...Read More...

Hi again everyone! For this round of research, as I mentioned in my previous post, I will be discussing how we as a society are supporting individuals with developmental disabilities, and how society is providing opportunities for them to become active members of our society. To begin, I will discuss how we have supported individuals with developmental disabilities in the past, and how that quality of care has changed in the present. In the past, as I mentioned previously, developmental...Read More...

Hi again everyone! Sorry this post is a bit late; I've been having some problems with my computer, but better late than never! For my third round of research, I will be discussing how society deals with discrimination against people with developmental disabilities, and I will be looking into how these disabilities are viewed across cultures. Thanks to some of your comments from my last post, I was able to find some pretty interesting stuff to talk about! Thank you all! So, first I will be...Read More...

Hey again everyone! For my second round of research, I will be furthering my topic by looking into the stigma that surrounds developmental disability, and will be analyzing how it came to be. As we have discussed in my previous round of research, developmental disabilities can severely hinder a person's ability to conform and to adapt in social settings, can cause health problems, and can, generally, make life that much harder for those affected. However, this would be manageable - albeit...Read More...

Hey everyone! For this research round, I will be looking deeper into my newest topic: "How are people with developmental disabilities/disorders affected emotionally?" To begin this research, I will first be discussing exactly what developmental disabilities are, and which disorders and most prominent in today's society. Now, for a brief summary behind the nature of developmental disorders. A developmental disability, according to the Developmental Disabilities Assistance and Bill of Rights...Read More...

Hi again everyone! For this final round of research, I wanted to look into something a little bit different; something that can be applied to our current and future societies while still remaining relevant to my topic. Today, I will be discussing how the attachments of children growing up in the digital age are different than those of previous generations, and how their growing exposure to the online world will influence the development of their brains. We all know that over the past few...Read More...

Hey again everyone! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday season! For this round of research, I have chosen to delve further into the research of John Bowlby, the man who is widely considered to be the pioneer of attachment theory. I made this decision because within Bowlby's research, many of the previous subtopics which I have discussed are either analyzed or at least mentioned, from Konrad Lorenz's research, to neglectful parenting styles, and more. As I discussed in my very first round...Read More...

Hey everyone! For this third round of research, I've decided to look into how a human child's upbringing can affect them later in life. I will be taking a step back from the scientific side of this topic, and I will be focusing more on the psychological effects of a person's upbringing and their early attachments. While researching this subject, I discovered that a child's attachments can greatly affect them as adults. Children with insecure attachments are likely to have underdeveloped...Read More...

Hey everyone! For this third Project Plan, I have decided to further the research surrounding my Inquiry Question, "How are people with developmental disabilities or disorders affected emotionally?" I will be breaking this subject down into several key categories in order to maximize my personal learning, and to cover as many subtopics as possible. I will start off by analyzing what exactly developmental disorders are, and what different variations are the most prevalent in today's society...Read More...

Hi everyone! For my second round of research in this cycle, I've decided to investigate how attachment has influenced the evolutionary success of different animal species. To begin, I will be discussing what role attachment plays in the process of evolution as a whole, and then I will discuss how specific species developed higher or lower levels of attachment to help them to survive and to evolve. Looking back through the ages, the human race has changed, adapted, and evolved tremendously.Read More...

Hi everyone! For my first round of research in this second cycle, I will be providing an overview of what research is being done regarding Attachment Theory currently, as well as research that has been conducted successfully in the past. So, to begin, I must ask the most basic question: what is attachment? According to simplepsychology.org, "attachment is a deep and enduring emotional bond that connects one person to another across time and space". We as humans become attached to our...Read More...

Hi everyone! For my second Project Plan, I will be explaining the process in which I will expand upon the Inquiry Question: "How is brain development affected by attachment to caregivers?". My research for this topic will be broken down into several categories; each vital to reaching my goal of an advanced understanding of my subject. I will begin my research by examining some of the evolutionary aspects of this topic which we see in nature, asking questions such as: "how does the brain...Read More...

Hi everyone! For my third round of research, I will be expanding on my previous subtopic (the psychological aspects of time perception) by covering any mental or physical conditions that can alter time perception, such as dyschronometria, a neurological condition, and depression, a mental condition. Physical conditions: Time perception is a very subjective thing; most of the variables that could potentially distort our sense of time are psychological, or completely natural. However, one...Read More...

Hi again! For this round of research, I will be focusing principally on the psychological aspects of time perception, and how our brains function in accordance with the way that time passes. Today, I will be examining the numerous variables that can change the way that we perceive time, such as age, the oddball effect, and what role novelty plays in the way that we observe the passing of time. How the Brain Keeps Track of Time: To begin, I will be explaining exactly which part of the brain...Read More...

Hi everyone! For this section of my research, I will be examining some of the scientific aspects of time, and the role that it plays in our universe. I will be discussing what time is, how it functions in accordance with the arrow of time, and I will also analyze some theories regarding time that are prevalent today in scientific and astrophysical discussion. Time, essentially, is the only temporal dimension that we have identified; there are also three spatial dimensions: height, width, and...Read More...

Hi everyone! My project plan for the question: "Do people perceive time in different ways?" will feature several different categories of research. I will begin by exploring the scientific front of the prospect of time; why does time pass? How are we capable of perceiving it at all? Are there any mental conditions that exist today that do not allow people to sense the passing of time? Using these questions, I will be able to get a more advanced grasp on what time truly is, and its effect on...Read More...
