Re: Research Round #1 (Cycle 2) - How Might Concussions Affect Teen's Brain Development?

Rhea Manhas (Charles Best) ·
Hey Lauren! I like how simple your research is! It makes it much easier to understand! It is so interesting as well! A teen would be changed after a concussion. Mentally, if the teen was hurt by soccer for an example the teen may be afraid to play soccer again. Physically, once you get a concussion or even break a bone for an example. Your more prone to injuring your self in that spot again because it was damaged there so it wouldn't be as strong. Hope this helps

Hi Lauren, have you considered looking at which diseases are more likely to develop in the future because of past concussions?

Re: Research Round #1 (Cycle 2) - How Might Concussions Affect Teen's Brain Development?

Hey Lauren! I'm so happy that you decided to continue with your research! Concussions are some of the most mundane injuries that we come across; they're common, but they can have serious consequences. I think that looking into the long-term effects of concussions could be a really interesting way to go; maybe discuss how people who got concussions as teens might grow up to have certain mental, physical, or psychological problems as adults. Just a suggestion, but I think that it would be an...

Re: Project Plan: How might concussions effect teen's brain development?

Hey Lauren, If you have the time, I think that it would be interesting to reasearch how the concussions affect teenagers later on. Are they unable to focus for the same amount of time as other adults? Is it slower for them to process certain information? I understand that your topic is on how the concussions affect teenage brain development, but I think it would be interesting to also look at long term resaults. Here are some websites that may be useful...

I find it so cool that you are doing your project on concussions. I always knew that having a concussion was pretty serious, but I didn't really have the whole picture (and still don't) until one of my good friends got her first concussion about 4 years ago. They are a tricky thing to deal with because although they are an extremely serious thing to have and should not be taken lightly, it is also a challenge for the athletes to not play their favourite sport, especially if it is something...

Hey Lauren, This is a really interesting topic. I had never really thought about athletes pushing through the pain as a bad thing. Probably because I've always had the mindset of considering "pain" to be things like sore muscles, exhaustion, sprained ankle, blisters etc.. In these cases it is what divides the athletes who get better and those who don't. But when talking about concussions it is a completely different story. Pushing through the pain when its a brain injury will have the...

Its really great that you have picked a topic that you connect with so well! It must be cool to finally figure out the background behind an injury you have actually experienced. Personally, I have never had a concussion and therefor have no clue the longterm or short term effects, but I hope through reading the rest of your research that will change Not sure if these are the TED Talks you've already seen, butIi thought they looked interesting.

Re: How Does Social Media Influence Teens(13-19 years old) ?

Hey Charlotte, Nice topic choice. I'm sure you'll be covering both the negative and positive influences. So some questions you could possibly consider is how can is effect their future? How does it effect decisions? Why is their an obssesion/addction to social media? Lastly, here's a recorded talk with a Professor of Psychology at Husson University's College of Science and Humanities on "Teens, Social Media & Well-Being". http://mainepublic.org/post/te...-well-being#stream/0 Best of Luck!

Hi Charlotte, I think with this topic, there will be many subtopics to look into. social media how affected how we use our cell phones before it was used to text and call. Now, social media is able to replace texting and most people use social media more on their phones than to call and text. You could do a research round on how it has benefited and negatively impacted youth. Here are some topics that may help: http://www.makeuseof.com/tag/p...tes-society-opinion/...

Interesting topic, Social media is defiantly a canvass for a lot of negative influences and presents an increased risk of experiencing cyberbullying but it also can be a platform for societal betterment and community engagement. It really is a similar situation to schools or social gatherings but ion a much larger and more permanent scale. However it does have a sense of disconnect and can have negative effects on people if they don't engage in person too.

Hi Charlotte! This is a really heated topic today, and a cool research idea. Going off of what you said about the changes in teens when they choose to use social media, you could look at stats for how open teens are online versus real life, or how their involvement with social media disconnects them from the real world. Actually, it would be really cool to find something about extensive social media use affecting reaction times and alertness. Have fun!

Re: Round Research#1

Hey Charlotte, Great topic; one that is becoming more and more relevant today. Social media definitely goes both ways and has positive effects because of factors like increasing our awareness about global issues, but is also negative because it opens us up to cyber bullying. I am hoping that you'll definitely focus on the third point you'l be elaborating on in your next round (on when teens are anonymous online) because it's something I haven't given much thought to. Good luck!

Hey Lauren, I really enjoyed reading your research! I believe your question is very relevant and something many people can relate to. Another aspect in which people get bullied (I think Sarnaver briefly mentioned this in his comment) is family wealth and social status.

The children who don't wear those clothes/make-up/etc. to school, may be a bigger...

Hi Lauren, I loved this week's research, and I especially enjoyed how you contrasted the positive and negative sides to the dress code system.

Hey Lauren, Nice research round, very organized and easy to understand. I like how you compared both public schools and private schools with their dress codes looking at the positive and negative sides of the dress codes. One thing you could maybe look into is what efforts do schools put in to make a safe atmosphere for the students so they don't have to worry about what they look like. And how this can affect immigrants and people who follow different religions as well. Great work!

Hi Amanda! I like how you decided to look at the myths of people with mental illnesses so we can know what's true about the topic and what's false.
