The Bystander Effect Is An Element Of Social Psychology

- The bystander effect is a phenomenon in our society in which people will most likely not help a victim when there are other people around, making you a bystander. One of the most used examples was the case of Kitty Genovese. The New Yorker reported that she was stabbed to death in New York City, and 38 eyewitnesses did not try to help in any way.

The course would be largely based off studies already published, starting with the 1968 study based on Kitty Genovese’s murder case, Axel Casian, Esmin Green, Hugo Alfred Tale-Yax and other popular cases where individual...   [tags: Bystander effect, Kitty Genovese]

Global Warming and the Greenhouse Effect

- Global Warming is due to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is a naturally occurring process that aids in heating the Earth's surface and atmosphere. It results from the fact that certain atmospheric gases, such as carbon dioxide, water vapor, and methane, are able to change the energy balance of the planet by being able to absorb longwave radiation from the Earth's surface. Without the greenhouse effect, life on this planet would probably not exist as the average temperature of the Earth would be a chilly -18 degrees Celsius, rather than the present 15 degrees Celsius....   [tags: Greenhouse Effect Climate Change]

Does Music have Positive Effects on the Mind?

- Does music have positive effects on the mind. Few can deny that music isn’t powerful but whether or not it’s positive is a different matter. It becomes a common factor between people where just a single phrase can turn a crowd into a single entity of spirit and cacophony. However, this power can do more harm than good in some circumstances, creating a stereotype for genres of music. At a Metallica Concert in Montreal a few years ago, the show was forced to stop as the singer was injured. The crowd flew into a agitation and started to riot by destroying chairs, fighting with each other, and flipping cars....   [tags: health, mozart effect]

- The Stroop effect is demonstrated by the reaction time to determine a color when the color is printed in a different color’s name. Participants respond slower or make more errors when the meaning of the word is incongruent with the color of the word. Despite knowing the meaning of the word, participants showed incapability of ignoring the stimulus attribute. This reflects a clear instance of semantic interference and an unfathomed failure of selective attention (Stroop, 1935).

But can music –specifically the music of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart- summon hidden intelligences within the human brain. That is the question scientists are trying to answer. In the mid-nineties, scientists, Frances Rauscher, Gordon Shaw and Katherine Ky, claimed that music could boost the listener’s intelligence up to 9 points (Steele 2). To many, this allegation seemed a bit far-fetched and soon other researchers began recreating the Rauscher, Shaw, and Ky experiment in hopes of discrediting their findings....   [tags: Music ]
