- CNS includes
- major sources of evidence in neuropsychology

- a cortical colour blindness, disorders of movement perception ie: see world in snapshots
- b brain - hindbrain, midbrain, forebrain and spinal cord
- c brain damaged patients and neuroimaging
- d position emission tomography. Injected with radioactive sugar. Active brain cells soak up the sugar = image similar to CAT and MRI.

- biological psychology / behavioural neuroscience
- fine motor control (largest part of hindbrain)
- includes psychologists, biologists, computer scientists physicians and others that research to understand the interactions of molecules inside individual nerve cells that also includes how neural tissue equates to conscious experience.
5 True/False questions
two sides of neuropsychology → brain damaged patients and neuroimaging
Cerebral Cortex → memory (more than a few seconds), knowledge, face storage, medial surface (long term events/places)
brain stem → weighs 3-4 pounds and is thought to be the most complex known object in the universe
Midbrain → sits on top of hindbrain - coordinates movement and relays information from senses.
Neuroimaging techniques → use measures of brain activity as "markers" of different cognitive processes
