5 True/False Questions
biological psychology → neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives.
threshold → the level of stimulation required to trigger a neural impulse.
autonomic nervous system → the division of the peripheral nervous system that controls the glands and the muscles of the internal organs (such as the heart). Its sympathetic division arouses; its parasympathetic division calms.
occipital lobes → portion of the cerebral cortex lying at the back of the head; includes areas that receive information from the visual fields.
MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) → a technique for revealing bloodflow and therefore, brain activity by comparing successive MRI scans. show brain function.
