5 Matching questions

  1. thalamus
  2. amygdala
  3. parietal lobes
  4. lesion
  5. Broca's area
  1. a 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. b 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)
  3. c tissue destruction. A naturally or experimentally caused destruction of brain tissue. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)
  4. d two lima bean-sized neural clusters in the limbic system; linked to emotion. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)
  5. e the 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)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the principle that information is often simultaneously processed on separate conscious and unconscious tracks. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 090)
  2. a 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. a visual display of brain activity that detects where a radioactive form of glucose goes while the brain performs a given task. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)
  4. 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)
  5. the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)

5 True/False questions

  1. Wernicke's areacontrols language reception—a brain area involved in language comprehension and expression; usually in the left temporal lobe. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)

          

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

          

  3. plasticitytissue destruction. A naturally or experimentally caused destruction of brain tissue. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)

          

  4. CT (computed tomography) scana visual display of brain activity that detects where a radioactive form of glucose goes while the brain performs a given task. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

          

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