This class blog is for students enrolled in Fraser's class at Kyoritsu University, Mondays 5th period.
This lesson was very interesting for me. when I was high school student,I studied about the structure of the brain a little, but I couldn't remember that completely.So I was glad that I studied about that in more detail.
I learned that all animals have the reptile brain, but animals having the emotional brain and the thinking brain are limited.
Also, I learned that these layers of the brain controll what kind of events.
I was surprised to know that the emotional brain is stronger than the thinking brain because I thougt ''human has reason, so human can controll their instinct through reason.'' However, come to think of it, sometimes, I watch YouTube videos though I understand ''I have to study now.''
I think so too. No one can win against temptation.
Sorry. I made a mistake.
I learned a lot of things in this lesson and I feel that this lesson was very interesting for me.
Before this lesson begins, I didn't like to talk with other people in English because I didn't know how to make conversations.
In this lesson, I learned that return questions and follow-up questions were very important. I knew that these questions were essential to continue conversations.
I practiced speaking English with my classmates to take advantage of these questions.
So I learned to speak English better than before. But my English skill is poor yet. I want to be good at speaking English by the last lesson.
It was interested for me at the lesson in that the emotional layer of the brain is deeper layer than the thinking layer of that.
The articles says '' If the thinking layer of the brain wants to do one thing, and the emotional layer wants to do another, because it is a deeper layer, usually emotional part of the brain will get its way.''.
I agree with that! My emotional layer often get its way ( for example, I don’t study even if I have homeworks to do, I eat some sweets even if I decide to do diet and more…).
I think we must make a strong decision when we think to do something.
But if we think so, it is not easy for us.
This lesson taught me a lot of things.I came to like English more and more, especially compared to before.
The best thing in this lesson was group work.There were not many opportunities that I talk with other people in English.However,We have to talk only in English during class.That was very pleasant for me but it was difficult to talk only in English.I wanted to become good at more English.My English ability is meager.I think I would like to understand more English.The magic of the teacher was very fun, too.
This lesson was interesting for me. I learned many things in this lesson.
I learned about brain before for several years. However, I had left them, so I learned them again.
First, I learned that the blain has three different layers.
I have heard that brain has reptiles brain, feelings brain and the thinking brain. Therefore, I understood that we could notice even if an earthquake was generated while we slept.
Also, this article says, "One theory states that the different layers of the brain will sometimes disagree with each other". I too thought that is indeed so. I have it well. For example, I play with my smartphone even if I must do my homework, I sleep even if I understand that I must not sleep and so on. I want to follow through on my intention!
I thought that all layers were important for us.
This lesson is very interesting for me.
I learned that human have three different rayers of the brain for the first time.
First, my most surprising thing is that human have a brain that exists only humans.
It is "thinking brain". I found thanks to this brain, I can use language and understand various things. I think without this brain, I can not have a life like now.
Second, my second surprising thing is that "reptile brain" is the smallest layer of the brain, because this layer is where my instincts are. I think there is most important part. I was very surprised it. I glad to learn about brain structure.
This lesson was interesting for me. Because I don't have a chance to speak English.So this lesson gives me chances to speak English.
I will make chances to speak English.I continue to study and to speak English.
I learned not to be shy. I am shy , but I can speak in English in front of classmate.And I learned that follow-up question is very important for conversation.
I was surprised that good teacher needs to set high goals and to make certain every student is keeping up. Because I think that good teacher needs teaching experience.But after I heard why I can consent.
This lesson was interesting for me. And I can learn a lot of things. I did not like biological. And I forgot what I learned at high school. So, at first, it was difficult for me. but, finally, I was able to understand thanks to group work and teacher.
I learned why only human can use language and difference in 3layers of the brain. I also learned the importance of speaking English even though I am not good at and not to stop thinking.
I was surprised to know that the brain is a little different between man and woman.
This lesson was interesting for me.
At first, I felt anxirty and surprise because I heard that we cannot speak Japanese at this lesson.
However, I could learn the pleasure of the conversation in English.
‟What’s New” was the very good chance to speak English, and I found out that a follow-up question is more important to make the conversation fun.
Besides, I read and learned a textbook about tacher’s good influence.
I want to be a kindergarten teacher in the future, so I think that I would like to use what I learned in this lesson.
And from now on, I would like to improve my speaking skill.
This lesson was so interesting for me because I have never thought about that before.
I learned that human brain is divided into three layers, each layer plays an important role and human brain shows that human is the most developed animal.
I was surprised that thinking brain is only responsible for about 20 percent of decision making. Certainly, I often put off my homework when I am tired and want to watch favorite TV. I thought if thinking brain is bigger, we can act effectively. However, I also thought if thinking brain will be bigger, we lose individuality and we are bored.
This lesson was interesting for me. I first realized that there are three different layers in the human brain. I learned that each of the three layers has a role and that thanks to thinking brain, humans are only animal that can use language to describe their feelings and experiences.
I was surprised that there is a difference between men and women, such as men have a stronger reptile brain and women have stronger emotional brain. I think that it is interesting that the reason for that is historically different for each role of men and women.
Since thinking brain always loses to emotional brain and postpones my assignment, I would like to make thinking brain stronger!
This lesson was interesting for me. Because, I am learning about the structure of the human body in the class of nursing department.
I do not learn the structure of the brain yet, but I am looking forward to learning.
I was surprised to learn that the emotional layer of the brain is deeper than the thinking layer and has influence.
I think that is true. Because I often give priority to what I want to do rather than what I have to do.
However, I think that it is bad thing, so I want to be able to suppress feelings well.
Learning brain is very interesting for me!!
I was surprised that our brain structure can be divided into three layers. We carrying a little lizard, a little mouse, and a little monkey inside our brains. That is good analogy. I can understand this more deeply. The cortex is larger and more sophisticated than the other two layers. That was most interesting. Man is different from animals in that he has the faculty of speech.l understand that the cortex is most important part of human brain.
l was surprised that emotional brain is stronger than the thinking brain. The cortex responsible for higher mental functions. This is thinking brain. The emotional brain is 'mouse'. I think that it is very strange.
This lesson is interesting for me.There were a lot of things that I learned for the first time through this lesson.
It was very difficult that we must not speak Japanese,but it was good practice for speaking English.
I learned a lot of English phrase. There are many phrase I didn't learn in high school.I want to make sure I do not forget about a lot of things in this lesson.
Also, I learned through this lesson that follow-up question is very important.
In this class, I read many interesting essay.Especially ,I was surprised that human have three different rayers of the brain.
This lesson was very interesting for me.l leaned a lot of thing.l always lean and understand something in Japanese,but l leaned that the human brain has three of different layers in English for the first time.These were labeled the reptile brain,the emotion brazing and the thinking
brain.l thoght" l study English more,l want to lean many things in English".
l am shy,l coudn't talk to people in English.But through this lesson , l knew Speaking English mus not be afraid.Every time as follow up question, I'm not reluctant to speak English. After this I want to speak English fruently.
I think that English is difficult.
Let's work hard together.
This lesson was interesting for me. Because I learned that why humans are clever than other animals.
Humans only have "thinking brain", so humans are clever than other animals.
In short, "thinking brain" makes us human.
In my opinion, thinking is the greatest skill for us. "Thinking brain" enables us to read and understand many things. It allows us to keep the reason, solve probrems, plan ahead. It is very fantastic function.
I was surprised that one theory states the different layers of brain will sometimes disagree with each other but I experienced that.
One day, I wanted to eat sweets. If I eat the sweets, I would gain weight. I was very annoyed. So I was convinced this theory.
I want to learn about brain any more.
This lesson was very interesting for me because I didn't know much about brains.
I learned that brain structure is divided in three layers,which have different functions.And,When it comes to human,thinking brain is bigger than emotional brain,but emotional brain is stronger than thinking brain.I was surprised about this.I think human is clever thanks to the thinking brain,but we can't control ourself perfectly because of the emotional brain.
I'm always defeated my emotional brain so I can't study in my house at all.I want to become a person who can control myself more.
This lesson was interesting for me. I am bad at English since I was a junior high school student, so I was full of anxious feelings whether I keep up with this lesson. In fact, this lesson is very difficult for me. But I took a class seriously than when I was a high school student.
I was surprised that we must speak while this lesson. I was anxious because I am not good at English and I can only speak English a little. But classmates help me when I couldn't think of it so I think this classmates are kind and clever. I learned the importance of speaking English from this class.
Sorry, there is typo.
I was surprised that we must speak English while this lesson.
This lesson was very interesting for me. I knew that my brain 3-tier structure for the first time. I leaned three brains.
First,reptilian brain is oldest brain and functioning coordination of life activities. Second, mammalian brain cover the reptile brain in the process of evolution occurred and fanction by instinct and learning cognition. Third, human brain cover the limbic system in the process of evolution occurred and function adjustment of human intellectual activities.I am surprised that something like this is happening in the brain. I wanted to learn more deeply it because I am school of nursing. This lecture was useful.
The lesson was interesting for me. Because, I thought the structure and function of the brain was very difficult. And, I thought that it was difficult to understand. But, I could understand by dividing it into three kinds. I found that a women often cries and mother has strong love for children because the emotional brain is developing. And, I thought it interesting that human have the reptile brain. Because, I was surprised that human beings also have instinct. I would like to know what kind of dangerous existed in old human and more about the structure and function of the brain.
This lesson was very interesting for me. I learned the difficulty of speaking English on a daily basis in Fraser's class. It was frustrating that English words did not come out soon. I thought that I forgot that I studied in high school. In this lesson, in addition to speaking English, I got a lot of knowledge.
In the last lesson, I learned that the brain is classified into three. I learned that the brain is classified into three. I was surprised that there are lots of things that I do not know already because of my body. I think that I would like to study hard in English and other things.
This lesson is interesting for me.
I didn't know much about brains.I knew for the first time that humans have three different parts in the brain.
It was surprising and intriguing that men and women's brains are different.
Learning it in Japanese was even a bit difficult so to learn in English was very hard work.
But it was an interesting lesson.
I was surprised that the emotional brain is more influential than the thinking brain.I certainly thought it might be so.
I know on the thinking side that "I must do it," but in emotional side, I often do things I want to do.
I felt this class very interesting.As I usually do not think deeply about my brain's mechanisms and work, it was fun to think about the brain again.I felt the mystery of mankind that the human brain has such evident traces clearly.I am taking a linguistic lesson, I learned the closeness of brain and language and culture in that lesson, so this lesson was a good opportunity to deepen my understanding.
