VOCABULARY LIST This is a list of terms you should be familiar with for the purposes of this course. By "familiar with", you should be able to give a brief definition of the term without having to think too much. For individuals whose names are listed, you should be able to identify the name with a significant finding or contribution and, if appropriate, an experiment. For any experiment, you should be able to describe what was done and what the significance of it was as well as the name of the experimenter if it's given. For theories, you should be able to identify the name of the theorist and provide a brief description of what the theory says. Where there is an organ listed, you should be able to identify it from a picture and provide a brief description of its function. This is a course in psychology and not physiology so function is always more important than structure. Where I've listed an acronym, you should know both the phrase it stands for and the definition of the phrase. Opposite terms are separated by a slash. Some items are best defined as lists of other concepts or phenomena; these are marked with an asterisk*. If it helps you study, try to think of these as potential flash-cards: What would you put on the other side?
