University of California San Diego Consciousness and Sleep Discussion




This week we learned about states of consciousness (including sleep) as well as drugs and addiction. We learned about the multiple ways we receive information from the environment and how our brain sorts and makes meaning of it. We reflected on factors that influence our sleep, awareness, and well-being. Discuss what you have learned this week about consciousness and sleep. What makes meditation difficult despite its health benefits? What stood out about the psychological and social factors that influence drug use and addiction identified in the lecture and Dr. Hart’s Ted Talk? What can you do to improve your sleep?
