Review for Physiological Psychology Exam 1. There will be approximately 45 questions on the test. Note: This is a fairly comprehensive review sheet, but it is certainly possible that you will have questions on the exam that are not explicitly referenced here. Your best bet is to review all of your slides and notes, and be sure that you are quite familiar with the topics in this review sheet. Chapter 1: Know terms associated with chapter 1, such as neoteny. Be able to recognize examples of natural selection. Also, know the observations of philosophers and physicians mentioned in slides. Chapter 2: Know what happens in an action potential. Understand EPSP and IPSP and why they occur. Understand different types of diffusion; gradients, sodium-potassium pump. Review intercalated proteins, ionotropic vs. metabotropic receptors, the glia mentioned in class (oligodendrocytes, astrocytes, microglia.) Be very familiar with neuronal anatomy in the context of synapse (axons, dendrites, myelination, etc.)

    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.
