- c Large structure at the back of the brain; controls balance, posture, and smooth movements, involved in learning and shifting of attention; ADHD, autism, and schizophrenia.
- d possible when scientist continue to encounter an anomaly, which cannot be explained by the current paradigm (paradigms are relatively rigid, and normal science persists due to its apparent inflexibility)

5 True/False questions
Potassium → Found mostly inside the membrane (along with a host of negatively charged anions)
Behaviorist Perspective → Focuses on the learning and studies the way in which environmental events control behavior. According to behaviorists, scientific knowledge comes from using experimental methods to study the relationship between environmental events and behavior.
Internal Consistency (inter-item) Reliability → consistency across items (different items that measure the same variable should produce similar results; most popular method)
4 Characteristics of Good Research → Below the cortex; contains the hypothalamus, thalamus, basal ganglia, and limbic system.
Psychodynamic Perspective 2 → Metaphor: iceberg (conscious/unconscious)
Method: case study (in-depth observation of behavior of a person)
Data: clinical observations of behaviors, thoughts and feelings
