5 Matching questions

  1. frontal lobes
  2. temporal lobes
  3. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)
  4. parietal lobes
  5. electroencephalogram (EEG)
  1. a a technique that uses magnetic fields and radio waves to produce computer-generated images of soft tissue. They scans show brain anatomy. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)
  2. b 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)
  3. c portion of the cerebral cortex lying roughly above the ears; includes the auditory areas, each receiving information primarily from the opposite ear. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  4. d 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)
  5. e 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)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. controls language expression—an area, usually in the left frontal lobe, that directs the muscle movements involved in speech. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)
  2. 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. our awareness of ourselves and our environment. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e pp. 089, 176)
  4. the base of the brainstem; controls heartbeat and breathing. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  5. 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)

5 True/False questions

  1. CT (computed tomography) scana series of X-ray photographs taken from different angles and combined by computer into a composite representation of a slice through the body. Also called CAT scan. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

          

  2. hypothalamusa neural structure lying below (hypo) the thalamus; it directs several maintenance activities (eating, drinking, body temperature), helps govern the endocrine system via the pituitary gland, and is linked to emotion and reward. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 072)

          

  3. glial cells (glia)cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons. (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. plasticityimpairment 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)
