5 Matching questions

  1. aphasia
  2. fMRI (functional MRI)
  3. lesion
  4. neurogenesis
  5. occipital lobes
  1. a 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)
  2. b tissue destruction. A naturally or experimentally caused destruction of brain tissue. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)
  3. c the formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)
  4. d 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. e 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)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. doughnut-shaped neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)
  2. the base of the brainstem; controls heartbeat and breathing. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  3. 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)
  4. the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)
  5. portion of the cerebral cortex lying just behind the forehead; involved in speaking and muscle movements and in making plans and judgments. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

5 True/False questions

  1. cerebral cortexthe intricate fabric of interconnected neural cells covering the cerebral hemispheres; the body's ultimate control and information-processing center. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

          

  2. parietal 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)

          

  3. cerebellumthe "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)

          

  4. motor cortexan area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 075)

          

  5. hypothalamusthe brain's sensory switchboard, located on top of the brainstem; it directs messages to the sensory receiving areas in the cortex and transmits replies to the cerebellum and medulla. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
