Question 9


Image result for medulla function


  • Carries out and regulates life sustaining functions such as breathing, swallowing and heart rate
  • It's functions are involuntary, or done without thought.

Question 11


Image result for myelin sheath

  • The main purpose of myelin is to increase the speed at which electrical impulses propagate along the myelinated fiber
  • In unmyelinated fibers, electrical impulses (action potentials) travel as continuous waves, but, in myelinated fibers, they "hop" or propagate by saltatory conduction.

Question 13


Image result for central nervous system vs peripheral nervous system

Question 15


  • Adrenaline: a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands, especially in conditions of stress, increasing rates of blood circulation, breathing, and carbohydrate metabolism and preparing muscles for exertion.
  • Steroid: any of a large class of organic compounds with a characteristic molecular structure containing four rings of carbon atoms
  • Acetylcholine: a compound that occurs throughout the nervous system, in which it functions as a neurotransmitter
  • Endorphin: The principal function of endorphins is to inhibit the communication of pain signals; they may also produce a feeling of euphoria very similar to that produced by other opioids
  • GABA: a neurotransmitter that blocks impulses between nerve cells in the brain

    • a change over time in the responsiveness of the sensory system to a constant stimulus.

      Image result for sensory adaptation

  • Weber's Law

    • the change in a stimulus that will be just noticeable is a constant ratio of the original stimulus.

  • The Young–Helmholtz theory

    • a theory of trichromatic color vision – the manner in which the photoreceptor cells in the eyes of humans and other primates work to enable color vision.

      Image result for The young-helmholtz theory

  • Opponent-process theory

    • a psychological and neurological model that accounts for a wide range of behaviors, including color vision
    • Opponent process theory suggests that color perception is controlled by the activity of two opponent systems: a blue-yellow mechanism and a red-green mechanism.

      Image result for opponent-process theory

  • Feature detection theory

    • The nervous system sorts or filters complex natural stimuli in order to extract behaviorally relevant cues that have a high probability of being associated with important objects or organisms in their environment, as opposed to irrelevant background or noise.Image result for feature detection theory

Question 21


Image result for stimulus energy neural message transduction

Question 22


  • The Barnum effect

    • a common psychological phenomenon whereby individuals give high accuracy ratings to descriptions of their personality that supposedly are tailored specifically to them, that are in fact vague and general enough to apply to a wide range of people

  • Locus of control

    • A person with an internal locus of control believes that he or she can influence events and their outcomes, while someone with an external locus of control blames outside forces for everything.

  • The self-serving bias

    • A self-serving bias is any cognitive or perceptual process that is distorted by the need to maintain and enhance self-esteem, or the tendency to perceive oneself in an overly favorable manner.

  • Fetus: an unborn offspring of a mammal, in particular an unborn human baby more than eight weeks after conception

Question 57


  • Iconic memory is part of the visual memory system which also includes long-term memory and visual short-term memory. It is a type of sensory memory that lasts very briefly before quickly fading.
  • Implicit memory is one of the two main types of long-term human memory. It is acquired and used unconsciously, and can affect thoughts and behaviours.
  • Echoic memory is the sensory memory register specific to auditory information (sounds).
  • A flashbulb memory is a highly detailed, exceptionally vivid 'snapshot' of the moment and circumstances in which a piece of surprising and consequential (or emotionally arousing) news was heard.
  • Working memory is a cognitive system with a limited capacity that is responsible for temporarily holding information available for processing

Question 73


table showing the different types of validity

  • Face validity: the degree to which a procedure, especially a psychological test or assessment, appears effective in terms of its stated aims.
  • Predictive validity: the extent to which a score on a scale or test predicts scores on some criterion measure
  • Content validity: how well an instrument (i.e. a test or questionnaire) measures a theoretical construct

Question 82


  • In psychology, heuristics are simple, efficient rules which people often use to form judgments and make decisions.
  • They are mental shortcuts that usually involve focusing on one aspect of a complex problem and ignoring others.

    • The availability heuristic is a mental shortcut that relies on immediate examples that come to a given person's mind when evaluating a specific topic, concept, method or decision.
