Print This Page   Lesson 2  Biology, the Brain, Behavior, and the Mind  Introduction: Connecting Your Learning  In the next three lessons you will be looking at the effects and relationships of the  body  and  brain  on mental  and behavioral functions and activities. You will be adopting a  biological perspective  on psychology - see  Chapter One. This area of psychology is one of the fastest growing parts of the discipline. It should provide  many amazing practical benefits in the future. Ask yourself as you read Chapters Three and Four how you or  your family members could benefit from the incredible advances being made in understanding  heredity  processes genes , the  brain,  and the  nervous system . Physiological psychology clearly illustrates the  scientific dimension  of the discipline of psychology. There is  a great deal of factual information in this section of the course and there are a variety of  scientific  technologies  introduced and described. Additionally, there are a number of  biological chemical , and  physical principles  discussed in the next few chapters. All of this scientific information is connected to the  mind and behavior, demonstrating clearly how humans can be scientifically studied as part of the  world of  nature . An important skill to develop in this lesson is the ability to  visualize  and  create diagrams  of the different  parts of the nervous system. There are several study questions below that ask you to draw pictures/diagrams  from memory of  anatomical structures . The ability to visualize is a second cognitive skill, along with  critical thinking introduced in the first lesson, essential in gaining an understanding of psychology.

    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.
