Question by emma: can i do major in psychology then do further studies in neuroscience? Is that possible?
i am currently doing major in neuroscience but i am quite confused about it. i haven’t really decided about it yet. So i am wondering if i could do major in psychology then do further studies in neuroscience because i think that both are quite related. Can you share me your experience or knowledge on this?

Yes, I know someone who majored in Neuroscience, minored in psych.

I wouldn’t though..enough people are psych majors. Actually, there’s a lot of neuroscience majors too…

Question by : Gender and sexuality studies in relation to science. Please help me figure out how to combine them?
I love science and would love to have it geared at a specific topic of study
i love biochemistry and neuroscience the most
Is there a way i can use science to study things such as gender, sex and sexuality
Maybe genetics? Idk
I want to take courses and have a job that involves science but science that reveals or works to discover things about gender and sexuality
so think more in terms of genes or brain chemistry rather than psychology or sociology

please and thank you!

Not sure about sociologists, but many psychologists today rely on brain studies in their work, so don’t knock out some research just because it was carried out by a psychologist. Most studies that focus on a part of the brain involved in a certain activity use PET (positron emission tomography) scans, which can take minutes to capture a single image. In terms of sex, minutes can be, well, just a few minutes too long. But some studies have emerged in the last decade or so, some also making use of a technique known as fMRI.

Check out a 2003 study by Serge Stoléru, a neuroscientist at Pierre and Marie Curie University in France (see second source). They showed a series of pictures and films, including erotic and ordinary ones, to 15 men in an experiment. They scanned their brains during the viewing of the pictures and movies. In general, there was a definite difference in the brain recruitment between men who had “ordinary” sex lives and those who suffered from a condition that makes them experience sexual desires and fantasies much less than average people. Is that the kind of research that you’re interested in. Maybe a trip to France is in order. :-)

Generally, we know in the brain, sex and the sexuality response seem to be located in the temporal lobe, which is too big a site to say we know much more about it than we did before we knew the temporal lobe was involved. Specifically, the amygdala seems to put together the emotional response, and the hippocampus takes care of memories (associating sights and smells with past experiences). Also, some studies have also revealed that higher centers (those normally associated with understanding other people’s intentions) also kick into gear.

Answer by JQuick
Nobody can answer your questions except the person who will be interviewing you, or perhaps the administrative secretary of the department for that graduate program. If you don’t answer the questions very well, the interview might not last very long at all. These interviews are often focused on how well you are prepared to handle the program, to compare you to other candidates, to judge your verbal communication ability, and to see if the program is a good match for you. Expect to explain why you picked that program compared to similar programs at other universities. You should study the specific interests and research areas of all the faculty in the program and be able to discuss each professor by name that focuses on topics that match your interests. If a few professors are particularly good for your research topics, then do your homework on them by reading all of their most important papers and publications well enough to discuss the topics intelligently. Your preparation (or lack of it) will show very quickly in the interview. Many students do not prepare extensively for interviews, so doing this research could set you apart from the rest of the applicants. Professors want highly motivated graduate students that they can use to the research work for them, so that they can get most of the credit.

Answer by 80ist
Since religion has often been used to support political platforms, the Great Awakenings have exerted significant influence on the politics of America. Joseph Tracy, the minister and historian who gave this religious phenomenon its name in his influential (and still, to many, definitive) 1842 book The Great Awakening, saw the First Great Awakening as a precursor to the War of Independence .

Recovering the New: Transatlantic Roots of Modernism (Becoming Modern: New Nineteenth-Century Studies)

Historians and cultural critics have customarily viewed modernism as a movement with western European origins that established an aesthetic in opposition to mass culture. In sharp contrast to these established views, Edward S. Cutler argues that modernity is best understood as a translantic urban phenomenon and that aesthetic practices which consolidate under modernism in the early 20th century are themselves historically implicated in the very mass culture against which they declared “autonomy
