My thoughts on 'My Secret Bully' by: Trudy Ludwig. My Secret Bully is a very good book. I like how she went to her mom when she needed help and support. It made me think about when I was being slightly bullied and my mom helped me out and talked to me. I really liked when she stood up to Kate and Kate never bothered her again. I was sort of sad when we found out that her and Kate would never be friends again but I was happy when she said she had made new friends. It made me think about what I would do if I was bullied again. All in all I was very impressed with the book.
My limbic system is what's happening in my brain. I have a prefrontal cortex a hippocampus and an amygdala. First I would like to talk about the prefrontal cortex ( PFC ).
The PFC is what makes us different from animals. We can make bigger decisions and anything we think or want to do is stored in there. The PFC is at the front of the brain, it is the cortex which covers the front part of the frontal lobe.
Next I will talk about the hippocampus.
The hippocampus is associated with emotion and everything you learn or do is stored there it is where you remember things. It is located in the medial temporal lobe of the brain, if your hippocampus was taken out you could forget everything very quickly.
Finally I will talk about the amygdala.
The amygdala is what tells you if you're going to fight fright or freeze. If you are under stress or frightened or just not knowing what to do your amygdala will act up making it hard for you to think clearly making it a harder job for the PFC and hippocampus.
