This site contains links to online paper and magazine articles related to biological psychology.
Neural Impulse (Brain and Behavior, Figure 2.8)
This sequence demonstrates the movement of ions across the neural membrane from resting potential through an action potential.
Transmission at the Synapse (Brain and Behavior, Figure 2.15)
This sequence demonstrates the events occurring at the synapse during synaptic transmission.
Spatial and Temporal Summation (Brain and Behavior, Figure 2.18)
This sequence shows the processes of temporal and spatial summation.
The Spinal Cord (Brain and Behavior, Figure 3.16)
This sequence demonstrates the neural connections involved in a spinal reflex, such as withdrawing the hand from a painful stimulus.
Every day, the popular media publish articles about research related to the brain and behavior. Such sources are probably the primary way in which such information is distributed to the general public. However, such articles typically lack detail and tend to oversimplify the results of the research being described. Readers who want more information can obtain the original reports written by the scientists conducting the research, but these are often written in very technical language that the average well-informed citizen may struggle to understand. In this Discussion, you will review both types of information (popular media and primary research reports) on a topic of interest having to do with the brain and behavior. You will then compare these sources based on such things as their writing style and content.
To prepare for this Discussion:
Go to the following Web site: http://www.biopsychology.com/news. In the top, right-hand corner box (Search Article Summaries), select a keyword link that you are interested in (e.g., Alzheimerâ€™s disease). Browse through two or three recent articles. Take note of the style of writing that is used, as well as the level of description of the studies. Note that these articles are typically written by science journalists about someone elseâ€™s research.
Next, visit the Walden online journal collection, and locate a journal article related to the same topic (e.g., Alzheimerâ€™s disease). Be sure that the article you select is a research report â€“ that is, it should contain sections that describe in detail the sample of individuals studied, the methods of data collection, and the results of the study. As you read the article, take note of the style of writing used by the author(s) and the level of description of the study. Compare this article to those you read from the biopsychology.com Web site.
Record citations for all of the articles you read for this Discussion.
With these thoughts in mind:
Post by Day 4 a brief summary of the biopsychology.com articles and another summary of the research article (include citations). Next, compare (similarities and differences) the two types of information on criteria such as ease of understanding, level of detail, and accuracy. Finally, indicate which type of article college students studying brain and behavior should look to for information about the topic. Support your position.
Note: Put the keyword topic you have selected in the first line of your post. You will be asked to respond to a colleague who selected a different keyword topic than you did.
Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
