Re: Research 2 - Nocebo Effect

I find this topic very interesting. I know of this illness although I don't know what it is called that will give you symptoms if some just mentions and illness. If you start talking about a headache they will think about it, and then they will get a headache too. It is weird. So much illness' are what you think. If you are sick, and like being able to miss school you might not get better as fast, where as if you are excited to do something the next day you will heal faster. Really cool...

Re: Research 2 - Nocebo Effect

wow i have had of this effect for the first time but i did a little research and found out what it really is.i went deeper and found this story about a nurse who was attending to a soldier during the second world war but the morphine ran low.the nurse assured the soldier that he was getting a potent pain killer although the syringe only contained salty water. Amazingly the soldier was relieved and this prevented onset of shock. But do this effect have any negative effect? I will be looking...

Re: Research 2 - Nocebo Effect

Wow I'm glad that you were interested in this subject and did some research on your own! This is a very interesting story and although it is not the Nocebo effect, it is actually the Placebo effect. Rather than the fake drug having a negative effect on the soldier, it had a positive effect. Thanks for being so interested in this subject!

This has some really great information! Is there anything you would've done differently with your project if you could ? Would you have wanted to research deeper in a topic of post more surveys?

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Celebration of Learning

Your presentation is fantastic! I wasn't aware that there was a medical diagnosis for having a broken heart, let alone an advanced treatment method. I also like your second slide, and how the 'reward system' of love becomes a type of addiction.

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Celebration of Learning

Thank you both! If I could have done something different, I probably would've looked more into the seven stages of heartbreak. However, I still do have time to continue on with this project and that's what I'll be doing.

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Research 3

This is really cool research, Marisa! I wonder why humans go through such a specific process after going through a loss or heartbreak. Many of these steps seem to be unhealthy situations, and it seems strange that humans would devote so much energy to recovery in this way. Would it not make sense to get back to life sooner? For instance when humans feel pain, after a short time they will go into shock. I don't know much on the subject, so I apologize if my question sounds obvious. If you...

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Research 3

I really like this research! Heartbreak is one of the hardest things that people go through in my opinion. There is nothing harder than losing someone you love. I think that this research is very true. All of these "stages" that people go through are the same things I went through when I have lost people I love. I also think that it is very true that these stages come and go. People deal with heartbreak in different ways, and some of the "stages" will take longer to overcome than others. I...

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Research 3

Jessica those are all valid questions! In fact many human interactions or reactions are confusing and require deeper explanation. I'd love to find out more of the science behind it but as you probably know it's quite difficult finding a credible source online.

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Research 3

I find it very interesting that the cause of a heartbreak whether it be a death of a loved one or a breakup has the same stages of grief. Why do you think that is?

This research is awesome! The quote “Someone who is dealing with heartbreak follows patterns similar to those of the stages of death.” I believe is very true. Do you think that gender has anything to do with the grieving process? I look forward to more information! The topic of heartbreak is something I believe all of us have, or will face in our life time.
Comment

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Research 2

This is really interesting. I like how you are looking at heartbreak in the sense of a break up, and heartbreak in the sense on a loved one dying. I've never really had to experience either of these events. I know it has something to do with chemical reactions in the brain. How do people with mental illnesses process these occurrences? I can't wait to see what else you find. Wish I could be more help.
Comment

Re: Effects of Heartbreak - Research 2

amazing research! I love how you are looking are heart break in a scientific sense, but you may also be interested in looking at this in a more philological way. Both would explain why a person feels a certain way, just through different explanations.

Re: BROADEN YOUR THINKING // The Missing Link? (Paige Hunter)

Paige Hunter (LFAS-Alumni) ·
On the subject of risk taking and your final questions, people who have more at stake that they could gain from a situation won't take risks. That's a bit confusing, so let's put it into a medical situation that is easier for me to talk about for various reasons: Say someone is put into a life or death situation, such as a stroke. That person is unable to make decisions for themselves. Therefore, the responsibility of that life is put into the hands of a close family member or guardian. A...

Re: EXPERIMENT - PLEASE DO THIS

Desi Chek (Alumni-LFAS) ·
Interesting experiment! It's so strange how a video where a man has no facial expression can be given so much emotion through music and the same video can be given so many different emotions. I wonder how this experiment would change if the man had some sort of expression. As well, do you think titling the videos with the emotion you are supposed to feel has an effect on the viewer? When I read the title "creepy" I immediately thought "I'm supposed to feel scared when I watch this." I think...

Re: EXPERIMENT - PLEASE DO THIS

Wow! Really cool experiment, Paige! I'm really excited to read other people's responses of this as time goes on! Question 1 - Yes! it totally did. For the first video I felt like the man was part of a horror movie, peering in through a window about to stab my face or something. For the second I felt like it was one of those olympic training clips - maybe an advertisement for bottled water or monster energy drink. The third didn't really inspire a lot of emotion for me. It sort of felt like...

Thanks for taking the survey, guys! Desi: I totally forgot that I had the emotions written on there, whoops! That probably has an effect on people... I'll remember to add a control sample if I do a later experiment. It's so cool that you guys had such intense (or not so intense, with the third one) reactions to such a simple video!
Comment

Re: EXPERIMENT - PLEASE DO THIS

Paige if you're having trouble getting people to do this experiment, it might be worthwhile to bring this outside the butterfly effect community. Try talking to friends/bugging family/ spamming Facebook or twitter. I've found that strategy merits me more responses than just the website.

1. All of the clips changed the way i felt about the music except for the third one. I felt it was too out of place and didn't go well with the clip so it was hard to relate an emotion. The second video reminded me of a tv show that i like watching called Once Upon a Time. Its about fairy tale characters so the energy of the music was similar. 2. first video 2/4 second video 3/4 third video 1/4 fourth video 3/4. 3 and 4.

Re: EXPERIMENT - PLEASE DO THIS

This is a really cool experiment, I hope my answers help. 1) Yes, each video had a different feeling yo it. 1 is really creepy like he is going to show up at your door and kill you. 2 is adventurous like is is about to go on a mission to save the world. For 3 the music and to video don't really reflect each other, since he looks somewhat serious it doesn't really work as well as the others. 4 is sad you want to cry for him because something bad just happened. 2) video1 - 4/4 video2 - 3/4...

The first one I felt like I was watching a horror movie, the music really built suspense. The second one totally made me think of someone about to run into somekind of battle.

Really cool experiment. Going off of what Desiree said, it might have been more accurate if there were a control group and the videos weren't labelled. I kept trying to make myself feel creeped out with the first one. 1) Definitely. But some more than others. The first didn't really make me feel creeped out, so that one didn't change how I felt cause there weren't any feelings to begin with. The second made me want to run into battle and be heroic haha. The third felt awkward because the...

This was a very interesting experiment to do, it was cool to see how music can truly impact your view on things, but also as Desi said it might be a good idea to remove labels of the exact emotion you were trying to portray it made me think that I needed to try to feel that way, ya feel? haha 1) most certainly they did, the first made me get a really eerie vibe like he was a really disturbed person maybe a killer? and the second made me feel like he just won a battle or something in medevil...

Re: So which pictures do you find the most effective?

I think the first one was by far the most effective. It wasn't overly violent, like the fifth one, or a bit tricky to figure out like the second one. It was easy to understand exactly what the message was without feeling like as a viewer you were being attacked morally or something. In other words, it was more a presentation of facts rather than an accusation of wrongdoing. It leaves the decision of what to do up to the viewer. Also, it showed life, not death - presenting the beauty of...

Personally I think the 6th picture is the most effective one. The picture clearly show how human's behaviour directly effect the sharks and other sea animals. although, the picture look a little bit violent, but I think that's a great way to get people to pay attention.
Comment

Re: So which pictures do you find the most effective?

Flora Xia (Alumni-LFAS) ·
I agree with Joulin I also think the 6th photo is the most effective. The imagery feels modern and simple, which makes the violence seem less over the top. The colours and design just resonate more with our digitized world.

Re: So which pictures do you find the most effective?

I think the 4th is more effective, because of its wide range of view and also from its visibility "colour",also it's eye capturing because it created an impression that the plate is hollow,I can only describe that as beautiful!

Re: Electronic Devices and Happiness

Cool question! We have become so involved with our electronics its hard to imagine life without them, do you think there has been a change in the human emotions as digital electronics progressed over time? Are people without digital devices happier or sadder than those with digital devises? Why?
Comment

Re: Electronic Devices and Happiness

Former Member ·
This is an extremely relevant issue since digital devices are used virtually everywhere. Young people in particular seem to be much more desensitized to things like violence; this is arguably from being subjected to video games and movies that glamorize and promote it. With the continued development of technology, we become more and more attached to our devices. I think it would be cool for you to look into the results that these connections have on everyday interactions people have with...

Re: Female Genital Mutilation(FGM)

Banice: I think this is a very good question for you to examine.

The follwoing website is a strong argument against female genital mutilation (FGM), and the vocabulary in it is a bit hard to understand, but I strongly suggest that you read it and try to understand the arguments AGAINST the stance of moral...

Re: POVERTY

Denis: Poverty also exists in North America, albeit the most poor people are better off than other countries. However, there is a lot of work here by educators being done on trying to understand the difference between situational and generational poverty.

Re: EFFECTS OF FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION

There is plenty of research done by different people and organizations concerning female genital mutilation. The effects of FGM are diverse and can range from physical effects to psychological effects that in most cases are of negative consequence to the individual. I'll just share one link to a whole research done on the question which i think will help answer your question. This research emphasizes on the health effects of the whole process with important data attached. ...

I got these from a worksheet we got in the LFAS Social Studies 11 class. Debt After WWII the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank extended loans to impoverished countries.

Re: EFFECTS OF FEMALE GENITAL MUTILATION

I think that the most important effect of this is psychological. It is defiantly hard to recover from traumatic experiences, let alone such of a traumatic experience that will effect the rest of your life. I think FGM is immoral due to the lack of concent from the victim. This procedure takes away many of the child's rights and freedoms before they have fully developed their body and their mind.
