II. METHODOLOGY A Pasco Human Arm Model was used to simulate the muscles and motion of an actual arm in this lab. Two built-in angle sensors measured the position changes in the shoulder and elbow. Cords were attached to the forearm and threaded through pulleys, to represent either the biceps or the triceps. Force sensors were attached to the cords or the model's hand, to measure the amount of force applied during the activities.
This is because the cap adds more weight to that one side. Before I was able to realize this, I had four unsuccessful attempts, making my fifth attempt my final try. This occurred because of physics, sinc the weight of the pen is uneven due to the cap, one side of the pen is getting pulled more than the side without the extra weight. In the second experiment, it took my four attempts to balance the paper. One thing I had noticed is the paper bent in the middle where my finger was.
When these axons crossed it was believed that the sensory pulses would get sent to the wrong part of the brain causing a touch on your index finger to feel like a touch on your thumb. This phenomenon was referred to as false localization. Merzenich accepted this idea and went on to document what was happening in the brain during this process. However, what he discovered was completely unexpected. It turns out that even when axons get shuffled, the brain managed to normalize the signals and shift its map to un-shuffle the signals.
Some weaknesses that I was faced with included finding appropriate times to conduct this experiment, because of the fact that I divided the fifteen participants up into three different groups. If I had not done this, the experiment would have been rushed due to the long amount of time that it would have taken to complete, and the results might not have been as precise. Another weakness that I encountered was being able to find a way to provide the skittles to test on the participants because of my busy
In regards to the thirty minute time frame set by the ED director, I received a comment that should have presented a 20 minute power point and saved 10 minutes for questions and answers. During the presentation I had a few questions and I should have asked in the beginning that all questions refrain until after the presentation. I also should have passed the evaluations out before the presentation with the brochure, might have received 100% participation and increase in comments. In regards to clarity, rate, and professionalism, I thought it was a very good presentation. I did find myself reading the presentation more word for word secondary to lack of visual Following the presentation, there was a 10 minute discussion for questions about the presentation and brochure.
Of all the schools to which I applied, only VSU waitlisted me probably because of my phobia about standardized examinations, which caused me not to perform as well as I should have on the SAT. But being waitlisted encouraged me to become more determined to compose convincing correspondence to enter VSU in the spring semester of
Being that this article was in explanatory it gave me additional information and a new, but existing peace of mind to look at. The article also helped label the many impacting flaws that the Department of Homeland Security carries along with its positive impacts. This also leads to new questions in my research proposal, for example, Is Homeland Security the most effective way to deal with many of the task that it performs, or should the jobs within Homeland Security be stripped down and put into departments of their
With 12 people of different experiences it was extremely hard to get everyone to agree on a verdict due to their opinions. In reality this would be a bit easier as the jurors would take longer to deliver rather than 5 minutes before the end of the lesson. Throughout the trial the defence kept mentioning another case and some luggage I took notes on what they said it but it was very difficult to understand as it was never properly explained. In a real trial as there would be longer to deliver hopefully one person would have the information but this could be aided by having transcripts of the case which is not given in a real
Working with my focus learner, at the beginning, I was doubtful if any progress would be made. However, i was pleasantly surprised. She actually made big strides in such a short time. By the second week, she was grasping the idea of sequencing and deepening her understanding of text material. Both the focus learner and me were shocked when we noticed she sequenced the story correctly by the second week of intervention.
The doctor had also looked at my spine which didn’t make much sense to me until later on. The whole appointment lasted almost two hours, but it was a very educational two hours, because in the end I found out that I not only had Scoliosis, but that I also had Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (EDS). There are three main types of Ehlers Danlos Syndrome, and I have the hypermobility type. It’s essentially a problem in your body that doesn’t allow you to produce collagen correctly. Unfortunately that affects the way my
First we thought about what would be a reasonable second time. After that we put in 5 and it went a little more than halfway, so we moved on to a higher number like 8. Sadly, it didn 't work and it was only a slight bit away from the finish, so we decided to program the robot to move 9. After that it was only barely not on the finish line so we decided to add 0.5 and then it landed right on the line. So my final answer to the mission was that if you go at 20% power for 9.5 seconds you will complete the mission.
1) I was able to reduce my resting heart rate from a 83 to a 77. When I acheived that it put me from the fair catigory into the fit catigory. I did not set a goal to do this but with the extra cardio that i added to my work out helped me to that outcome. 2) My back flexibilty was a long term goal of mine. I wanted to improve my flexibilty from a 32cm to 37 cm.
After we have finished our six periods decisions on the simulation analysis, we have made three big mistakes during our analysis on staffing, training, and compensation parts. First of all, our team was not balance all of the decisions perfectly at the very beginning quarters. we knew that we have $350,000 budget can be spent each quarter, however, our G-person team has spent more budget for staffing part in the first quarter since we thought more employees would improve company 's productivity and quality rates. In contrast, this decision leads us to the problem that we don 't have much money to increase benefits and training for employees in our company. In addition, we only covered basic benefits and training such as Employee-Funded
Most of the time deception is justified with the results that are made with the experiment. Deception generates results that are valid and reliable like in Milgram 's study of obedience. The results that he gained from that experiment is something that could have not been gained if the participant knew how the experiment was working and what was really going on. It is important that the participants are debriefed after the experiment and told what was truly being measured and what was being
