Introduction to Psychology Study Guide Ch. 5 1. Define consciousness and daydreams. Consciousness is a state of awareness. Daydreams are relatively focused thinking about fantasies. 2. Define and give an example of divided consciousness. Divided Consciousness is the splitting off of two conscious activities that occur simultaneously, an example of this is watching television and having a conversation at the same time. 3.

Hypnologic sleep is a relaxed state of dreamlike awareness between wakefulness and sleep, and REM sleep is rapid-eye movement sleep, characterized by movement of the eyes under the lids; often accompanies dreams. 4. Define day residue. Day residue is dream content that is similar to events in the person’s waking life. 5. Describe the following sleep phenomena: nightmares, night terrors, sleepwalking, and sleep talking.

    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.
