Tutor description

Explain how each witness’s brain structure and neurotransmitter is responsibl prepare for this Assignment: Two people can experience the same situation yet have dramatically different perceptions of what happened. Review the following scenario: You are sitting in a meeting, when two coworkers arrive late. The first apologizes and says, “Sorry, there was a minor fender bender at the intersection, and I had to wait a few minutes to get around it.” A few moments later, the second coworker enters and says, “I’m sorry I’m late, but there was a terrible accident at the intersection. There was a lot of damage. I’ll be surprised if no one was killed!” You realize that both are describing the same accident. Review Module 3, “Neural and Hormonal Systems,” to explore the link between biological activity and psychological events. Review Module 4, “The Brain,” and focus on what each part of the brain controls. Consider how brain function is related to thoughts, feelings, and behaviors. Review

First of all we select stimuli from the environment and then we organize the information gained from the stimuli and then we interpret the stimuli. We use our senses to perceive the world around us including sight, hearing, touch, taste and smell. Perception of an individual towards any situation can be influenced by his attitude, motives, interests and expectations. Stimulus oriented learning, expectations; beliefs, motives, and sense based perceptions are transmitted in human personality through various components in human brain. I n given scenario two persons perceive one accident in two different ways because mind structure and mind grooming of every individual is different from other individual. The way both of them perceive that accident depends on the mind structure of both as well as personal grooming of an individual. Mind structures of both individuals include lobes and neurons which communicate the message to brain and then brain react according to the message. Neurons in the brains of both individual send the same message to the brain and lobes in minds of both individual translate the same message in two different ways. The reason they both perceive one message or situation in two different ways is their pe
