This week on Tuesday, my class took a field trip to UCSD C.A.R.E. I really enjoyed the different activities we have done, and also the tour of the hospital. I’ve learned bits of information from every station. The first activity my group had done, was the neuropsychological testing. I was interesting how scientists can study the brain just from their patients doing activities. The one activity that stood out to me was the stroop tests. The point of that activity is having a control over yourself and cognitive processing. My group and I tried completing this activity as fast as we can, but it was very difficult at the end; which was saying a word, with an uncoordinated color attached with it. Another activity my group and I have done, was the EEG testing. We first saw a short tutorial on what the EEG does and how it works. The purpose of this is to scan the brain harmlessly. A con from this test, is that there is no spacial awareness. My friend, Mathew Tofoya, was our “test dummy” so he was up to get tested on. Our speaker who was hooking up the wires to Mathew was telling us the slightest movements would show up in the monitor. The wires were hooked up right below his right eye, and right when he blinked, it showed up in the monitor.
