Did you ever play Hungry Hungry Hippos? If you can’t remember, then you might have something wrong with your Hippocampus.
According to Wikipedia this “is a major component of the brains of humans and other mammals. It belongs to the limbic system and plays important roles in long-term memory and spatial navigation. Like the cerebral cortex, with which it is closely associated, it is a paired structure, with mirror-image halves in the left and right sides of the brain. In humans and other primates, the hippocampus is located inside the medial temporal lobe, beneath the cortical surface.”
I can remember playing this game with my sister and younger brother and I know I enjoyed it.
It’s not often that I draw Psychology Cartoons dealing with weight issues and body image but, I was inspired by Margarita Tartakovsky. We talked a few weeks back about doing something together for a post. I’m planning on writing a post for her blog, but I can’t remember… I’ll have to e-mail her. Here is an excerpt from her about page:
“Weightless…a blog about body image, the skinny fad and freedom from numbers”
Weightless is about well-being, not weight; about fostering body image, regardless of your size. It’s about exposing women’s magazines, other mediums and so-called experts, when they’re touting unhealthy tips and promoting restrictive standards.
I think she can describe her blog much better than I can… I’ll just stick with the drawing.
I hope she can use it on her blog…
