This week in Sports Med, we covered many topics about the nervous system and some about our body senses. We also continued to work on our project this semester about nutrition.
We learned about the different parts that make up our nervous system. I found it very interesting to discover that the brain, the spinal cord, and peripheral nerve all belong to the nervous system. From there, we learned about all the different and complex part that make up those three main sections of the nervous system. We completed a homework assignment that tested us on labeling a diagram of the Neuron and later completed a quiz on this same subject.
Also this week, we began reading about a lab we would be completing the next week in sports med. We finished the pre-lab assignment about the different senses in our body. We had to make a prediction on what we think would be the most sensitive part of our body to touch- the forearm, the finger tips, or the back of the hand. I predicted that our finger tips would be most sensitive because our fingers touch the most and we use them most often.
Finally this week, we continued working on out nutrition fad diet projects. We completed an assignment this week that outlined what exactly our diets are made of and what the idea behind it is. We also completed a food journal for three days. I found this assignment really cool because it made me cautious about the foods I was putting into my body.
