Students have mind-bending experiences
Centre students were among 60 area students who attended a “Behavior Mania” event Thursday at McPherson College. They engaged in activities and presentations about psychology, sociology, and criminal justice.
Traveling from room to room, they participated in numerous mind-bending experiences.
Zach Barney was one who experienced a strong effect at one station dealing with mind influence on a weighted pendulum on a chain. While holding the pendulum steady above two lines and thinking about a shape or direction, he saw the chain move sideways in a wide circle.
“So much goes on in the mind that we don’t know about,” he said, “and to actually learn about it is really cool.”
Kate Basore, Jacob Bittle, David Meghan, Janel Dones, Maddy Millspaugh, Corden Minor, Grace Peterson, Tanner Peterson, Emily Schlesener, Jace Hett, River Aulgur, Cody Svoboda, and Max Svoboda also participated.
