> What area of studies are you in? I am thinking of majoring in Psych. Next fall I plan on taking Intro into commputing (since I am so old and don't know a think about the new stuff), and Adolescent and Child Development. I can only handle part time since I am a mom too.

I study children's cognitive development and how it relates to their brain. The fancy word, when I want someone to think of me as obnoxious and arrogant is "Developmental Cognitive Neuroscience".

I think you'll have a good time in the Dev. Psychology classes. I enjoy this subject because it poses so many exciting questions (I'm a nerd, *I* find them exciting!) Here are 3 that will probably be covered in most intro courses in child development.

1)For instance - are human minds similar because we share similar genes, or because we grow up in an environment that is regular (i.e. we all experience gravity, we all experience light... etc) and
2)cognitive development - what is it about young children's minds that make them such fantastic learners? Why can't adults learn things with such facility?
3)What forces shape a child's personality and temperament- to what extent are these attributes malleable vs. fixed? Do children of different temperaments experience the world in the same way?

> Thanks again for you support! Another question if you don't mind, what does your posting name mean? ;-)

You're most welcome for my support- anytime I'm in a place where I can help, I try :)

My name is an acronym l.l.r.r.r.p.p. for a nickname that a loved one gave me. This particular person named me this when I was just a wee one.

l.lapiderroodyroodyrexlapexlapoo

:) Noone remembers it but me. It's special to me, kind of like a special code for love. Before I was on babble, I never shared it with anyone. Now it's kind of public, but that's okay. Sharing love is a good thing.

feel free to call me lurp or lrp or whatever. It's the spirit of the name that matters. silliness, lurspieburpsie- it's of no consequence!

happy weekend HappyFlower
yours,
-ll
