PSYC 106 EXAM 1 REVIEW SHEET, Spring 2007 Bring a pink scantron form (F-1712-PAR-L) & #2 pencil to the exam. This is all you will be allowed at your desk. This review sheet does NOT cover all material that could possibly be on the exam. It is not meant to be the only source you use for studying for the exam, but just a supplement. Lecture 1 (Chapter 1) 1Distinguish between allied research fields 2Research perspectives for analysis of behavior 3Mind vs. Brain: historical figures Aristotle, HIppocrates, Plato, Middle Ages 4Cartesian Dualism 5Monism, Broca & patient Tan (Broca’s area), electrical stimulation 6What is a gene? A protein? A synapse? What do they do? recombination, mutation 7Genetics of behavior G a. pathway from genes to behavior p b. influence of environment (PKU) i c. sources of error in genetic & heritability studies 8Animal Research A a.

Near axon hillock & threshold = -55mV N b. Voltage-gated channels (Na+, then Ca++ at TB) V c. Nodes of Ranvier & saltatory conduction N d. Conduction speed: which types of neurons are fastest? slowest? 7Hyperpolarization vs. depolarization? Graded potentials vs. Action potentials? 8Factors that can interfere with action potential? F a. E.g. disease/drugs? 9Central nervous system vs. peripheral nervous system C a. Which has more growth and recovery? W b. Which has oligodendrocytes vs. Schwann cells? 10Divisions of the PNS 11Autonomic systems: parasympathetic vs. sympathetic roles 12Afferent vs. efferent 133 cranial nerves -what do these do? 3 a.
