Hello everyone, It feels like it's been a long time since I last posted, but I will be posting every 2 weeks now with posts that are a little bit longer. For my first research round, I will be examining What is sleeping?, Why do we need sleep? and How many hours of sleep do we need for various ages? Before I get right into my round of research I must do a myth. Myth #1 Your brain rests during sleep. False: The body rests during sleep, not the brain. The brain remains active, gets recharged,...Read More...

Hello, For my new cycle, I'm exploring into a new question which is Why do we have trouble sleeping? I don't know anything much about this topic yet, so I'm going to be starting from the beginning. An idea I came up with is I want to uncover some myths about sleeping, so in my opening paragraph for each research round I'm going to briefly touch on a different sleeping myth. Hopefully at the end of my research, I will have 5 myths to uncover in my sixth research round. Now without a father of...Read More...

Hello everyone, I believe this is my last research round for this cycle and I'm sad to see it over already. For the last research round, I would like to take all my research and everyone's opinions and form a debate. Since I am kind of wrapping animal testing up I will choose a new topic for my next cycle. Thank you everyone who took my survey and left awesome comments on my previous posts because it is very helpful for this post and at the end I hope to finally pick a side of the debate!Read More...

Hello, For this round of research I will be looking into the negative effects of animal testing. As the negative side is more dominate in this debate topic, I would like the reader to still try and see they positive side too. Negatives Of Animal Testing In a debate there are always pros and cons, but today I'd like to focus on the negatives. - During these awful procedures, many animals are tortured and then as a result killed because of the condition and the lack of food and water. -...Read More...

Hey everybody, For this research round, I am going to look at the positive side of animal testing and see if there are any alternatives instead of testing on animals. Also I did make a survey, so could everyone please take it because it will help me form an opinion in one of my later posts. Positives In Animal Testing I'd like to think everything in the world has two sides to it and depending on how you view it one side is always negative and the other is positive. Animal testing has saved...Read More...

Hello everyone, For this round of research, I want to start by getting a definition on what animal testing is, what kinds of animals are tested on, and the history of animal testing.

An animal test is any scientific experiment or test in which a live animal is forced to undergo something that is likely to cause them pain, suffering, distress or lasting...Read More...

What do they test on the animals? How do they test the product on the animals? Research Round #3 What positive affects...Read More...

Hello everyone, Since last week was a short post on prevention and concussions, I will continue with the same topic. Thanks to Amanda and Danika who gave me some ideas for this week. Iā€™m going to explore how to prevent concussions in sports that don't have much equipment and dig deeper into the 2M technology that the NFL is investing in to prevent concussions.

Hello Everyone, I hope you all had a great winter break!!! Today I will be researching about prevention of concussions in sports and why its important to wear equipment. In sports, there isn't really a way to prevent concussions fully, but there are some ways to help protect a player. Most of the time, the coach is the player's main influence so the coach needs to be a respectful figure. When a player joins a team its the coaches responsibility to teach their players the rules and to respect...Read More...

Hey everyone Today in my research I plan on investigating changes of a person's personality after a concussion and I'm going to share what I learned from my survey data. Many changes happen to a person emotionally because everybody will have a different reaction and feelings after a traumatic injury like a concussion. Emotional Changes (What type of changes? Will the emotional change go away over a period of time? What causes the concussed person the emotional change?) Mood Swings people...Read More...

Hey everyone, For my first round of research I'm going to investigate how concussions can alter your school life. Some people think after a concussion you can go right back into school, but that's not true. School is very stressful and confusing for a person suffering a concussion. How does a concussion affect your learning at school? A concussion affects your ability to think, concentrate, remember and process new information. For teen's in high school that could be a major set back,...Read More...

Hello everyone, For my research today I'm going to find out what is a concussion and what specifically happens in the brain during the hit. Also I am going to look into the main cause of concussions on teens. What is a concussion? Did you concussions are a form of a Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) ? Surprisingly, they don't show up on CT scans or MRI scans so some people don't consider them a real serious injury. (1) A traumatic brain injury is any blow, hit or something as simple as a jolt to...Read More...

Hello everyone, My inquiry question is "how might concussions effect teen's brain development?" To start my project plan I am going to look into a detailed definition of a concussion and then find out what is the main cause of teens having concussions. After I become knowledgeable on concussions I will look into some side effects concussions have, then narrow it down to the common ones that apply to teens. Towards the end of my project I will compare how a normal teen's brain develops to a...Read More...
