1 STUDY GUIDE FOR COMPREHENSIVE PORTION OF FINAL EXAM There will be five 1-point questions from the “What matters” lecture/discussion on Dec. 1 There will be 30 multiple choice questions sampled from the 40 key concepts listed below. You should know the definition of the term or concept and be able to give an example where relevant. Also, you should know something about the research indicating why this concept is important in child or adolescent development. All of these concepts should be familiar to you off the top of your head or with a brief review. The comprehensive questions on the test will not be difficult. You could probably answer 25 out of 30 right now without studying. I recommend spending no more than two hours reviewing this stuff. 1. teratogen -substance, such as viruses and drugs, that can cause birth defects 2. sensitive period -a span of months or years during which a child may be particularly responsive to specific forms of experience or particularly influenced by their absence 3. synaptogenesis- the process of synapse development 4. pruning- the process of eliminating unused synapses 5. myelination- a process in neuronal development in which sheaths made of a substance called myelin gradually cover indiviudual axons and electrically insulate them from one another to improve the conductivity of the nerve 6. assimilation- process of using a scheme to make sense of an event of experience
