5 Matching questions

  1. cerebellum
  2. brainstem
  3. association areas
  4. amygdala
  5. motor cortex
  1. a an area at the rear of the frontal lobes that controls voluntary movements. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 075)
  2. b two lima bean-sized neural clusters in the limbic system; linked to emotion. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)
  3. c the oldest part and central core of the brain, beginning where the spinal cord swells as it enters the skull; It is responsible for automatic survival functions. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 069)
  4. d areas of the cerebral cortex that are not involved in primary motor or sensory functions; rather, they are involved in higher mental functions such as learning, remembering, thinking, and speaking. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 078)
  5. e 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)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. doughnut-shaped neural system (including the hippocampus, amygdala, and hypothalamus) located below the cerebral hemispheres; associated with emotions and drives. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 071)
  2. the principle that information is often simultaneously processed on separate conscious and unconscious tracks. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 090)
  3. the large band of neural fibers connecting the two brain hemispheres and carrying messages between them. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 084)
  4. the brain's sensory switchboard, located on top of the brainstem; it directs messages to the sensory receiving areas in the cortex and transmits replies to the cerebellum and medulla. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 070)
  5. 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)

  2. neurogenesisour awareness of ourselves and our environment. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e pp. 089, 176)

          

  3. occipital lobesportion of the cerebral cortex lying at the back of the head; includes areas that receive information from the visual fields. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 074)

          

  4. glial cells (glia)the principle that information is often simultaneously processed on separate conscious and unconscious tracks. (Myers Psychology for AP 1e p. 090)

          

  5. 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)
