Document Summary

Psych 111 - lecture 8 - consciousness (continued) Manifest content: surface level of the dream. Latent content: what it is truly revealing, hidden meaning, wishes, fears, or impulses trying to be expressed. Dancing, horseback riding, flying: thinking about sex. Problem-solving view of dreams: more able to solve challenges without constraints of walking processing. Activation-synthesis model: dreams are produced as people try to make sense of the random neural activity that occurs during sleep. When you are dreaming, neurons are firing. Hypnosis: systematic procedure that typically produces a heightened sense of susceptibility. Ex. putting a cigarette to your mouth and it turns into a worm. Might forget about the worm factor, but the reaction to the cigarette is the same. Subjects interpret their behavior as caused by something other than self; voluntary actions, goal-directed social behaviors, not altered consciousness. Rituals surrounding hypnosis increase suggestibility and create expectations. Raising arm and it feels heavy and breathing in and out (in class example)
