It is likely that “a number of different gene loci are involved which may act on their own or together in a complex polygenic manner” (Wynbrandt). In some families, it appears to be inherited in either an “autosomal dominant manner or in an X-linked form” (Wynbrandt). A major research effort is under way to map and isolate genes responsible. Some have been traced to certain chromosomal regions but no individual genes have been isolated to date. The cause of bipolar disorder is unknown, but one theory holds that it “may involve abnormalities in the transport of sodium and lithium in the brain”
Descartes then begins questioning most of his, and in essence, our, beliefs. He explores our many senses and reiterates that what the senses have taught us throughout our lives is not necessarily the truth. According to Descartes’ we have become so prone to believing everything taught to us by the manner in which we sense things and by our experiences that this has become our truth. This truth that has been created for us “from or through,” our senses often deceives us and forces us into believing in false truths. He uses three examples or ideas that question the existence of truth and of all that he has learnt.
The focus of this paper is to find those answers; and for me to generalize an opinion about what they mean to me. Everyone remembers the dream or dreams they have while they are in deep R.E.M (Random Eye Movement) sleep however there are few that can actively and accurately recall their dreams from short term memory less than two hours subsequently. Why is this I ask my readers? What tricks do our minds play on us to induce this amnesia like effect on our brains? In addition to this why does our brain dream what it dreams and where do these dreams come from.
Sigmund Freud also went on to support the use of hypnosis leading us to Milton Erickson. Born in 1932 Erickson, an American psychiatrist was noted for his approach to the unconscious mind as creative and solution generating. This is but a brief account, merely touching on what we know about the history of hypnosis. Yet despite this knowledge, when asked in our class what people’s preconceptions of hypnotherapy were, many answers related to cults, witch craft, black magic etc. People today are still sceptical and untrusting when it comes to hypnotherapy, but why?
After the sessions were taped a member of the research team selected, “3 sessions for each of 3 participants in both treatment groups” (Lin et al., 2004). This was to ensure that therapies were being delivered consistently in treatment groups. Since no members of the treatment were conducting sessions, Lin et al. ensure that the providers had been practicing for at least 20 years in the specific treatment
It's been described as a Trance, Meditation, and Dreams. All hallucinogens have varying effects from person to person, which is why they can be dangerous, but that doesn't mean they are.

Mark Solis Professor Blua Health Education June 5, 2014 Narcolepsy Narcolepsy is a chronic sleep disorder that affects the control of sleep, excessive daytime sleepiness and intermittent, uncontrollable episodes of falling asleep during the daytime. These sudden sleep attacks can occur during any type of activity at any time. In a typical sleep cycle, we initially enter the early stages of sleep followed by deeper sleep stages and ultimately REM sleep, which is the deepest sleep on endures. For those suffering from narcolepsy, REM sleep occurs almost immediately in the sleep cycle. It is in REM sleep that we can experience dreams and muscle paralysis, which explains some of the symptoms of narcolepsy, like the most common, immediately
