 How to Use this GuideThis guide provides information and resources on state of consciousness for an Introduction to Psychology course. All resources are Open Access and can be downloaded or added to a Course Management System (LMS) via the hyperlinks.  IntroductionThis section will explore states of consciousness with significant discussion on sleep. However, other altered states of consciousness due to psychoactive drugs, hypnosis, and meditation will be reviewed.According to the APA recommendations and Ohio TAG, this chapter also falls within Pillar 1 (Biological). This chapter is considered “optional” under the Ohio TAG, which requires Biology of Behavior and either Consciousness or Sensation to satisfy the requirements for Pillar 1: Biological. If you select to cover this chapter as your second topic within Biological, consider emphasizing the biological aspects of consciousness including the biology of consciousness and sleep, and the biological effects of drugs on consciousness (e.g., drugs as agonists and antagonists).
