*Scantron 16485 (2 big purple)* 1/3/19 A Brief History of Psychology Psychology - the scientific study of behavior and mind Psychology was formed through a synthesis of ideas from physiology and philosophy The mind body problem - are the mind and body separate or are they the same? Monist: mind and body are the same Dualist: mind and body are separate Where does the mind end and the body begin (illness, turing test) Alan Turing, figure out whether interacting with a person or a computer by asking questions (can you create a mind without a body) Most psychologist believe that there is no separation between the mind and the body (brain activity) Mind results from brain activity The nature/nurture question - are we born with certain knowledge or do we have to learn everything? (talking, intelligence, personality) How do people learn how to talk? (behaviorist view: reinforcement) (cognitivist view: people were born with the ability of language)

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
