  2. b a nerve cell; the basic building block of the nervous system
  3. c the arithmetic average of a distribution, obtained by adding the scores and then dividing by the number of scores
  4. d scientific study that aims to solve practical problems
  5. e repeating the essence of a research study, usually with different participants in different situations, to see whether the basic finding extends to other participants and circumstances

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. a computed measure of how much scores vary around the mean score
  2. a layer of fatty tissue segmentally encasing the fibers of many neurons; enables vastly greater transmission speed of neural impulses as the impulse hops from one node to the next
  3. assigning participants to experimental and control conditions by chance, thus minimizing preexisting differences between those assigned to the different groups
  4. neural "cables" containing many axons. These bundled axons, which are part of the peripheral nervous system, connect the central nervous system with muscles, glands, and sense organs

5 True/False questions

  3. rangethe difference between the highest and lowest scores in a distribution


  4. dendritethe middle score in a distribution; half the scores are above it and half are below it


  5. action potentialthe condition of an experiment that contrasts with the experimental condition and serves as a comparison for evaluating the effect of the treatment
