Brain Buster Exercise Step 1 :  Read the following scenario: You are walking down a sidewalk with a friend when, out of the corner of your eye, you think you  see a snake in the grass.  You jump and shout “snake” before realizing you’re actually looking at  a dark green ribbon on a stick, blowing in the wind.  You laugh, and then remember a pet snake  you had years ago.    Step 2:   Your task is to address how your brain produced that experience as if you were the occipital  lobe, thalamus, amygdala, Broca's region, the motor cortex, the frontal cortex, and the hippocampus.   To achieve this task, please answer the following questions:  1. You are the * occipital lobe* . In detail, describe your role in creating this experience. The occipital is the primary receiving area for visual information.  So the occipital lobe is responsible for me seeing the snake.

    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.
