An introduction to biological psychology

I need help answering 4 questions, each question must be 200 words. Questions are attached along with pages from the textbook.

TEXTBOOK: Discovering behavioral neuroscience: An introduction to biological psychology 4th edition by Laura A. Freberg.

Discuss the biology of psychology. What information stands out to you the most in Chapter 2 of your text? You may write about something that fascinates you, something new to you, something that scares you, or something that surprises you. And add any questions you may have in mind. Be sure to explain your response and relate what you discuss to specific course material from the textbook.

First, describe the major brain mechanisms of eating, thirst, and hunger. Second, choose an eating disorder (anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, or binge-eating) and present a case describing the person (age, gender, student/job status) and the symptoms and behaviors he/she is exhibiting. Then, explain how he/she ignores the cues his/her body is giving to maintain homeostasis. An introduction to biological psychology

Read the following questions than answer briefly each one

  1. Describe where Broca’s area and Wernicke’s areas are located in the brain. Compare and contrast the types of language impairments that are expressed when there is damage in each of these areas.
  2. Explain the two types of conditioned learning processes and then apply operant conditioning techniques to show how a teacher could use them in the classroom to ensure students were behaving appropriately.
  3. Define altruism and empathy and describe the role that the brain plays in these helping behaviors.

Number your answers to the questions, No plagiarism allowed, APA citation and references section

Discuss the stages of consciousness including wake, interruptions of consciousness, and the stages of sleep. Summarize what a person’s circadian rhythm is and provide examples of how a person can disturb the internal schedule. Include a scenario where time was adjusted significantly (or you did not have a sense of time) and how your body was affected. For example, if you got stuck in a place where there were no cues about the passage of time; you worked the night shift for a week; you took a long flight into a different day, etc. How would you try to restore your circadian rhythm? Explain.

Answer the following questions below:

1.The human cerebral cortex is divided into four lobes: frontal, parietal, temporal, and occipital. Each of these areas have a specific cell structure and functions. Compare each lobe and the main functions of these areas. Then, choose two of the lobes and discuss the effects of trauma in these areas. An introduction to biological psychology

2.Organize the following divisions of the nervous system in a hierarchy to illustrate the relationships between them: central, peripheral, autonomic, sympathetic, parasympathetic, and somatic. Analyze the basic functions and components of the autonomic nervous system (sympathetic and parasympathetic) nervous systems.

Write a 2-3 page, double-spaced paper that examines the basis of the central nervous system including nerve cells, events at the synapse, the blood-brain barrier, how certain drugs affect behavior, and ethical issues with animal research. An introduction to biological psychology

Answer the following questions:

Study the structure of the blood-brain barrier and discuss why it is important.​ How do drugs such as heroin and cocaine pass through this barrier and why does heroin have a faster effect on the brain? What effects do these drugs have on neurons, specifically at the synapse, and how does this influence behavior?

Summarize in detail what is happening in the image, starting with the action potential in the presynaptic neuron, through the release of neurotransmitters, the inhibition or excitatory response of the postsynaptic neuron, and the reuptake of neurotransmitters.

  • Discuss action potential and the all-or-none law. Compare the function and process of the refractory period, including the relative and absolute refractory periods.
  • The glia cell (neuroglia) in the nervous system derived its name from the Greek name for “glue.” This term was given by early investigators who thought the main function of the cell was to hold neurons together. Given that glia have been shown to have several more functions in the nervous system, the original name of “glue” seems unfitting. What would be a better description for glia, given what we now know about them? Explain. Be sure to support your response with evidence from the text.
