Final Project: Emotions


In this final project, I did a research about emotions, specifically about fears. I was quite interested in fear response, the causes of fear and the exact factors that lead a person to detect the emotion of fear. I wanted all audience to be able to read and understand my presentation, so I tried to limit the use of complicated words that many might possibly would not understand.

I decided to make a powerpoint since I wanted my presentation to be informative. This will allow the others to go through the slides at their own pace, without having to rush themselves. Hope you guys enjoy!

    Neat presentation! I am curious about these fear removal methods you mentioned. I know that Urbach-Wiethe disease is typically not life-threatening, but I am not sure what other effects the Toxoplasma gondii parasite had in mice. Do you think anyone will/has attempted to remove or diminish certain, perhaps irrational fears, in humans? Also, are said phobias innate or acquired or could they be both?

    Really enjoyed your presentation. I had some background knowledge on this topic, but your presentation went into enough depth for me to really understand how animals process fear. I thought it was really interesting, and powerpoint was the perfect medium.

    I think the toxoplasma experiments are super interesting, it’s amazing how something like that evolves!

    I find it fascinating that someone can lose their fear response. I bet there’s some companies/organizations that would be interested in that!
