Spinal Cord → Sends information from sensory neurons to the brain and it relays motor commands back to the muscles, glands, and organs via motor neurons.
Degradation and Reuptake → release neurotransmitters
William James → Wrote the 1st psychology textbook "The principles of Psychology" 1890; proponent of functionalism
Resting Potential → Spinal cord has dorsal (back or top side; sending sensory signals) and ventral (belly or bottom side; sending motor signals) roots that carry sensory and motor signals to and from the spinal cord.
Correlational Research → Interviews and questionnaires
Random sample: must be selected from pop. in an arbitrary way
Stratified Random Sample: specifies the percentage of people to be drawn from each population category.
Disadvantage: people may not respond to the questions truthfully.
