Case studies-single event Experiments- test observations to prove Rene Descartes- founder of psych first to test human behavior scientifically/hydrolics Luigi Galvani- electrical impulses Muller-ablation/brain affects certain parts. Flourens- ablation documented what did what Nerve energies- every nerve does a certain thing-Muller Cerebral angiography- cerebral blood filled structures Ct-computerized tomography- picture of head structure Pet scan-tests metabolic activity gives zdg MRI- magnetic field of electrical impulses in head Fmri-up to date impulses WAIS- 3 sections piq,viq,and both Rpt-Sensory based cognitive process Wisconsin card sorting test- cards that you match but don’t know how but if u are right or wrong EEG- electrodes placed on scalp measures brain electrical impulse MEG- measures magnetic fields in brain by electrical activity
