From the Stomach to the Mind – Advertisements of Foods Affects our Brains
The gastrointestinal tract (GI) is often called the second brain. The foods we consume have a massive impact on how we feel and think. We are bombarded with constant advertisements in the media, which influence the types of foods we wish to consume. For this project, you will first note the food advertisements you encounter (media, apps, radio, TV, etc.) and create a blog/website that describes how the nutritional value of such foods affects brain activity.
Sensory Overload and Mental Health
The aim of this project will be a complete literature review of the current evidence regarding sensory information of social media apps and the effects it has on mental health. This project will require you to draft a literature review and you will need access to literature sources. The final product will be a complete publishable journal review paper that explains the relationship between social media usage and mental health and disorders.
