b.localization of brain activity in response to a specific stimulus.c.the structure of individual neurons.d.patterns of blood flow in the brain.Ramon is looking at pictures of scantily clad women in a magazine. He is focusing on their body parts, particularly their chest and legs. Which part of Ramon's brain is activated by this viewing?a.Fusiform face area (FFA)b.Parahippocampal place area (PPA)c.Functional magnetic area (FMA)d.Extrastriate body area (EBA)The occipital lobe isa.where signals are received from the sensory system for touch.b.important for language, memory, hearing, and vision.
c.the part of the cerebral cortex where the visual cortex is located.d.important for higher functions such as language, thought, and memory, as well as motor functioning.Paul Broca's and Carl Wernicke's research provided early evidence fora.neural net theory.b.localization of function.c.distributed processing.d.prosopagnosiaBroca's area is a terrible example of "localization of function."TrueFalseWernicke's area is in the temporal lobe.TrueFalseA "single dissociation" study relys on one person with brain damage in one location of the brain performing one task.TrueFalseA "double dissociation" procedure relys on 2 people.TrueFalseTwo brain areas are functionally independent if neither is "functionally involved" in a task carried out by the other.TrueFalse
fMRI makes it possible to identify which areas of the brain are activated during different cognitive processes.TrueFalseThe PPA and the FFA both respond to faces.TrueFalseProcessing a face by the brain, begins in the occipital lobe.TrueFalseIt is easy for a ball to roll down a plank mostly because it is round on all sides.TrueFalseThe "Pain Matrix" is not a movie it's a neural network.TrueFalse
