5 Matching questions

  1. cerebellum
  2. corpus callosum
  3. Wernicke's area
  4. occipital lobes
  5. neurogenesis
  1. a the "little brain" at the rear of the brainstem; functions include processing sensory input and coordinating movement output and balance. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
  2. b portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the back of the head; includes areas that receive information from the visual fields. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  3. c controls language reception—a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression; usually in the left temporal lobe. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  4. d the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)
  5. e the formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
  2. an amplified recording of the waves of electrical activity that sweep across the brain's surface. These waves are measured by electrodes placed on the scalp. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)
  3. portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  4. impairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  5. a condition resulting from surgery that isolates the brain's two hemispheres by cutting the fibers (mainly those of the corpus callosum) connecting them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)

5 True/False questions

  1. amygdalatwo lima bean-sized neural clusters in the limbic system; linked to emotion. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)

          

  2. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)a technique for revealing bloodflow and, therefore, brain activity by comparing successive MRI scans. These scans show brain function. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

          

  3. frontal lobesportion of the cerebral cortex lying at the top of the head and toward the rear; receives sensory input for touch and body position. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

          

  4. fMRI (functional MRI)a technique for revealing bloodflow and, therefore, brain activity by comparing successive MRI scans. These scans show brain function. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

          

  5. consciousnessthe formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)
