Discussion 2: Scholar-Practitioner in Training
As this course draws to an end, pause and consider all that you have investigated about biological psychology. You have examined the anatomy and physiology of the brain and nervous system, and explored the intricate relationship between neuronal networks, neurotransmitters, and behaviors. You have examined sensation, perception, learning, and memory. You have also investigated issues of attention, biological rhythms, as well as language and lateralization of the brain.
What insights have you gained? What topics have inspired you for further research or investigation? Why is understanding the relationship between brain and behavior important for anyone who tries to understand the human condition?
