5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. cerebellum
  2. aphasia
  3. CT (computed tomography) scan
  4. electroencephalogram (EEG)
  5. fMRI (functional MRI)
  1. a 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)
  2. b a series of X-ray photographs taken from different angles and combined by computer into a composite representation of a slice through the body. Also called CAT scan. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)
  3. c a technique for revealing bloodflow and, therefore, brain activity by comparing successive MRI scans. These scans show brain function. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)
  4. d an amplified recording of the waves of electrical activity that sweep across the brain's surface. These waves are measured by electrodes placed on the scalp. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 067)
  5. e impairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. 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)
  2. the base of the brainstem; controls heartbeat and breathing. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  3. cells in the nervous system that support, nourish, and protect neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)
  4. 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)
  5. two lima bean-sized neural clusters in the limbic system; linked to emotion. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)

5 True/False questions

  1. MRI (magnetic resonance imaging)a technique for revealing bloodflow and, therefore, brain activity by comparing successive MRI scans. These scans show brain function. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 068)

          

  2. reticular formationa nerve network in the brainstem that plays an important role in controlling arousal. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)

          

  3. corpus callosumthe large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)

          

  4. lesionimpairment of language, usually caused by left hemisphere damage either to Broca's area (impairing speaking) or to Wernicke's area (impairing understanding). (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 080)

          

  5. neurogenesisthe formation of new neurons. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 083)
