Neuro Week 4 Assginment: Why do we Dream? Discussion (Essay Sample)


Sit for 15 minutes without moving, not even an eyelash. If you itch DO NOT scratch. Observe it instead. Write a one-page double spaced reflection paper sitting still for 15 minutes. Was it easy or difficult?

To say that the exercise was difficult is an understatement. It was grueling at best.
