16Section I High-Yield SciencePsych/Soc 1ORGANIZATION OF THE HUMAN NERVOUS SYSTEMIn this lesson, you’ll learn to:·Recognize the divisions of the nervous system·Predict portions of the nervous system involved in response to given stimuliHenry is a newborn infant who has been taken to his physician for a check-up. Up until now, Henry hasbehaved normally. His doctor tests several things to ensure that Henry is healthy.The doctor asks Henry’s parent whether Henry is either sleeping or becoming more docile afternursing.The doctor tests Henry’s vision and range of motion by waving a brightly colored object in frontof Henry and watching his response, which should typically involve visual tracking of the objectand an attempt to move extremities towards or away from the object.The doctor tests Henry’s Galant reflex. In this test the physician taps on the infant’s spine, andthe infant's hips should involuntarily and immediately twitch toward the location of the tap.Henry behaves as expected in the first two tasks, but fails to exhibit the Galant reflex. What should thephysician focus on in further neurological assessment?Why would Henry’s eating and sleeping habits inform the doctor about his peripheral nervous sys-tem function?Is the infant successfullysleeping or drowsingfollowing food intake?YesNo
Section I High-Yield SciencePsych/Soc 1How does the bright object test assess both majordivisions of the nervous system?
Why doesn’t the Galant reflex test provide muchinformation about brain function, and what does itprovide information about?
17If the doctor is trying to test for a potentially systemic issue, should the sensory neuron, the motorneuron, or the spinal interneuron be targeted first in testing?The Organization of the Human Nervous System is a topic covered in:Behavioral Sciences, Chapter 1: Biology and Behavior
18Section I High-Yield SciencePsych/Soc 1ASSOCIATIVE LEARNINGIn this lesson, you’ll learn to:·Recall the different types of conditioners used in operant conditioning·Identify the conditioners in a complex operant conditioning experiment·Identify the schedules of reinforcement used in operant conditioning experimentsA pigeon is placed in a cage with two buttons: one blue and one green. Pressing the blue buttontriggers the immediate release of a food pellet. However, pressing the blue button also immediatelytriggers an electric shock. Furthermore, each time a food pellet is released, the mechanism used torelease food pellets is disabled for a period of time varying randomly between 5 and 55 seconds. Theblue button’s electric shock mechanism remains active during this period. And once the latency periodhas passed, the next press of the blue button will immediately trigger the release of another food pellet.
