Hi everyone! In my previous research round, I mentioned how it would be the last one I would be doing for this cycle. However, I decided to make another research round about my topic and take my injury question further! For those who haven’t been following my forum, my inquiry question for this cycle is: “what does it mean to be conscious?” In this round, I’ll be looking into psychoactive drugs to broaden the understanding of the connection between consciousness and unconsciousness. While we...Read More...

Hi everyone, For this post I decided to focus on how participating in music and art therapy can impact people dealing with sicknesses. As I was researching, I discovered that in most cases, health is described to not only be an absence of disease, but to be healthy is to be in a complete state of physical, mental and social well-being. (1) People who participate in the creative process can be happier and are less likely to experience memory loss and cognitive issues. (2,3) Music therapy...Read More...

Hello folks, As many of you may know from my last post, I am looking into the concept of cultural appropriation. For those who are unfamiliar with the term, cultural appropriation refers to somebody using a culture to which they do not belong as their own. In regards to the arts, this could mean somebody writing a story as a character of a culture to which the author does not belong, which is what I am focussing on in this post (and likely in my next few rounds.) One particular example that...Read More...

Effect of condition of pregnancy on child development

Hi peeps! I’m doing my project on babies because I’ve always wondered if every little detail matters as to raising a child, especially during pregnancy. Wouldn’t it be great if we could find out how to perfectly raise a child to our fancy? (It actually might be a good thing that we can’t, yet). My previous knowledge is that women aren’t supposed to use drugs, alcohol, or smoke cigarettes during pregnancy but I never knew why. I also knew that they shouldn’t exercise or have hot baths.

I am just going to write a summary of what I looked at this week and will use this for a round of research.
