Chapter 4: Consciousness
Match the terms about awareness with their definitions
Consciousness: subjective experience of the world
Change blindness: inattention to changes in environment
Attention: focused awareness
Automatic processing: type of consciousness needed to perform quick, automatic
behaviors or habits
Controlled processing: type of consciousness needed to perform slow, deliberate, and
intentional tasks
The global workspace model holds that consciousness is a result of different parts of the
brain being active. Identify how the different brain areas each play a role in awareness.
Prefrontal cortex: “I understand plans”
Frontal motor cortex: “I’m all about movement”
Parietal lobe: “I’m aware of space”
Occipital lobe: “I see things”
Temporal lobe: “I hear things”
Match the brain activity with the corresponding stage of sleep.
Alert wakefulness: Beta waves
Just before sleep: Alpha waves
Stage 1: Theta Waves
Stage 2: sleep spindle and K-complex
Stage 3/4 slow wave sleep: delta waves
REM: beta waves
What is happening during REM sleep?
People’s eyes dart around
The mind produces dreams
