Sheet1 Exam Two Essay Gallery The following are sample essay responses for each of the possible essay questions for Exam Two. The sample essay responses represent a wide variety of quality in responses. To study, consult your textbook and the indicated pages while reading the various responses to determine which responses fully answer the essay question. For the exam you are expected to construct your response in your own words using your own examples (when needed). CHAPTER SIX 1. What determines a personÕs response towards sensory deprivation and what has research said about how people respond towards sensory deprivation? (pg 190) a) When people are deprived of all sensory stimulation they donÕt know where they are or what is going on. Sensory stimulation is very important so we know what is going on. We need sensory stimulation so we can function properly. b) When people are deprived of all sensory stimulation they may become very disoriented. In studies where volunteers were deprived of all sensory stimulation, they became very edgy and some reported having hallucinations. However, some people like being deprived of sensory stimulation for short amounts of time. c) Responses to sensory deprivation are linked to how the person is interpreting the experience and what their expectations are for the experience. In initial studies of sensory deprivation, male volunteers reported feeling edgy after the first few hours. Some men actually left the study the first day because of the disorienting affects of sensory deprivation. Those that stayed longer became confused, restless, and grouchy and some reported have hallucinations. However, these testing methods were later found questionable and more recent studies have found less disorienting affects. Some people even enjoy some limited time periods of sensory deprivation. d) Research has found that sensory deprivation can cause some people to have hallucinations and feel confused and grouchy. More recent research that has used better research methods has found results that sensory deprivation can be enjoyable and actually increase perceptual and intellectual abilities. e) Early research did find that sensory deprivation can cause someone to feel edgy or disoriented. Later research, however found that many people actually enjoy brief periods of sensory deprivation. How someone responds to sensory deprivation depends heavily upon the situation and how you are interpreting the experience. If you go into it thinking it will be relaxing then it will be. f f) The brain needs to have a minimal amount of stimulation to function normally. 2. Describe how the eye differs from a camera? (pg 192) a) The eye differs from a camera because a camera can only see to a certain extent. Our eyes can adapt to how bright it is and how far away things are where a camera has to manually focus and adjust to light conditions. b) The eye differs from a camera in that it is not a passive recorder of information. Our eyes actively process the light information through the use of neurons in our eyes. Our eyes donÕt just see the world as spots of light and dark.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
