Biological Basis of Behavior Chapter 1 Learning Objectives 1) Psychology is the study of behavior. Neuropsychology is the study of recovery of function following brain damage. In this class we will be studying Behavioral Neuroscience, also known as Biological Psychology. Behavioral Neuroscience is the study of what? 2) The phenomenon of “blindsight” is the ability perform reflexive visual movements such as avoiding objects, despite not being consciously aware that an object was present. Can the phenomenon of blindsight be explained in physiological terms? How do Behavioral Neuroscientists explain the physiological mechanisms underlying blindsight? 3) What part of the body do Cephalocentric views focus on? 4) The phenomenon of neuroplasticity or neural plasticity refers to what? 5) In the early days of Behavioral Neuroscience, scientists thought that the brain worked as a whole to control behavior, and all brain areas had similar function. This theory was called holism. It is now clear that specific parts of the brain have different functions. What fundamental theory of brain function does this idea support? 6) The science of Phrenology was the study of how bumps on the skull corresponded to functions of underlying brain regions. Although now a debunked theory, Phrenology was important because it supported what fundamental theory of brain function? 7) Do you believe that all behavior can be explained in physiological terms? In other words, do you believe that all behaviors are driven by an underlying physiological mechanism? Why or why not? Does your view agree or disagree with the view of modern Behavioral Neuroscientists?
