Anterior → cells that specialize in the transfer of information within the nervous system, they convey sensory information into the spinal cord and brain, carryout the operations involved in thought, feeling, and action; they transmit motor commands out into the body to control muscles, glands and organs.
Health Subdiscipline → Examines psychological factors involved in health and disease. (e.g., Are certain personality types less vulnerable to disease?)
Industrial/Organizational (I/O) Subdiscipline → Studies the way thought, feeling, and behavior develop through the life span, from infancy to death. (e.g., can children remember experiences from the first year of their lives?)
Graded Potential → Strength diminishes as it travels away. Graded potentials are cumulative
Structuralism → variable we want to measure (e.g. intelligence)
