From Zimbardo's "Discovering Psychology" series, this video discusses the unconscious aspects of the human mind and the effects of various states of consciousness on behavior.

The Addicted Brain Films for the Humanities and Sciences. 26 minutes. This documentary takes the viewer on a tour of the most prolific manufacturer and user of drugs--the human brain. This program also explores developments in the biochemistry of addiction and addictive behaviors. Substance Misuse Films for the Humanities and Sciences, 1995. 30 minutes. This program nicely follows the text with a discussion of the most commonly misused substances including stimulants (amphetamines, caffeine, cocaine, nicotine, MDMA), depressants (alcohol, benzodiazepines, barbiturates, solvents), hallucinogens (LSD, magic mushrooms), and narcotics (heroin, morphine). Captive Minds: Hypnosis and Beyond Filmmakers Library, 1988. 55 minutes. This award-winning video explains how long-term conditioning takes place and shows that indoctrination methods used by disparate institutions are surprisingly similar. This film shows how the power of suggestion influences behavior and reminds everyone that all people are vulnerable to psychological manipulation. Child Hypnosis with Dr. Perry London Psychological and Educational Films, 1990. 40 minutes. Dr. London asserts that hypnosis can be an effective treatment for stress-related disorders and is especially useful in children because of their trust and susceptibility. Actual demonstrations on a 10-year-old are shown. This is an excellent film to portray hypnosis and its use in psychotherapy. Sleep and Its Secrets Resller and Holzinger for Prisma Filmproduktion/Filmakers Library, 1999. 56 minutes. This documentary, which interweaves informative interviews with internationally renowned researchers and vivid graphics, gives a clear explanation of what happens to us during those unconscious hours.

    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.

    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.
