Question 1 3 of 3 points Social psychologists conduct research into areas such as bystander intervention, prejudice, conformity, aggression, and obedience to authority. However, in order to gain insight into such critical issues, researchers must create vivid events that are involving for their participants. Some of these events, by their very nature, are likely to produce a degree of discomfort in the participants, such as witnessing someone having a seizure. Thus, what is required for good science and what is required for ethical science can be contradictory. (Elliot Aronson, et al., Social Psychology) Selected Answer: What is required for good science and what is required for ethical science can be contradictory. Correct Answer: What is required for good science and what is required for ethical science can be contradictory. Question 2 3 of 3 points Nearly all philosophers and neuroscientists reject mind-body dualism. The primary objection is that that it conflicts with the law of conservation of matter and energy in physics. The only way to accelerate matter or transform energy, including the matter and energy in your body, is to act upon it with other matter or energy. For these reasons, if your mind is going to influence the matter or energy of your brain or any other part of your body, your mind must itself be composed of matter or energy. (James W. Kalat, Biological Psychology, 7th ed.) Selected Answer: If your mind is going to influence the matter or energy of your brain or any other part of your body, your mind must itself be composed of matter or energy. Correct Answer: If your mind is going to influence the matter or energy of your brain or any other part of your body, your mind must itself be composed of matter or energy. Question 3
