PSY 200 1st Edition Exam 1 Study GuideReview QuestionsYou will need to be able to answer these questions- Remember to check the book since some questions will come from the chaptersQ.1) What was good about introspection? Q.2)What are the 4 lobes of the brain? Q.3) How are faces processed?Q.4)Which part of a neuron sends output to other neurons?Q.5)Is signaling between neurons chemical or electrical?Q.6)What is dichotic listening?Q.7)In the Stroop task, which part of the brain should be suppressed with attention? Q.8)What type of theory is Gestalt?Q.9)For those with visual neglect, they are able to pay attention to both sides of imagined space, but only one side of physical space. True or False?Q.10)When a neuron is highly stimulated is it firing more rapidly or more often? Q.11)If a cue indicated the location of a subsequent target, that cue is called what?Q.12)Where are the most cones in your eyes located?Q.13)Color perception relies on the unique combinations produced by the firing of all 3 types of cones. This is called?Q.14)If a color word is placed above a color patch and they don’t match, will the Stroop effect occur?Q.15)In which type of search do the number of distractors not matter?These notes represent a detailed interpretation of the professor’s lecture. GradeBuddy is best used as a supplement to your own notes, not as a substitute.Q.16)Recognition by components theory has the advantage that..?Q.17)Which method shows causation between brain function and behavior?A.1)It was a systematic attempt to observe mental processes.A.2)Frontal, occipital, parietal, and temporal.A.3)ConfigurallyA.4)Axon A.5)ChemicalA.6)Listening to two different audios, one in each ear.A.7)The wordform areaA.8)Top-down theoryA.9)FalseA.10)RapidlyA.11)ValidA.12)FoveaA.13)Distributed processing A.14)YesA.15)Feature searchA.16)It explains how we identify objects at different angles.A.17)TMSBenefits and limitations of different measures used to study cognition (e.g., introspection, observable behavior)Structuralism, behaviorismTranscendental methodLittle Albert studyLatent learning (rat maze study)Difference between a hypothesis and a predictionDefinition and parts of a neuron; synaptic transmissionProperties of an action potential (threshold; all-or-none law)General function of different brain regionsLobes of the brain Spatial and temporal resolution of brain methodologies (fMRI, patient work, TMS, ERP/EEG, single cell recording).What is each of the above methods measuring (e.g., electrical activity, blood flow, behavior)Single vs double dissociationsRelationship between motor and sensory homunculus and the amount of cortical space devoted to each body part (pp 49-50)Definition of receptive fieldBasic pathway of visual information in the brainRods and cones and differences between them and their distribution on foveaDefinition of the foveaDefinition of distributed coding and how color is perceivedDefinition of lateral inhibition and how it produces edge enhancement, Mach bands illusionBinding problemCentral idea of feature integration, recognition by components, and Gestalt theories of object recognitionView invarianceEvidence used to support each of the above theoriesFeature maps/Master map of locationsBottom-up vs Top-down processesConfigural/holistic recognition in face perceptionFusiform face areaChange blindnessRepetition primingDichotic listening, shadowing, and results of dichotic listening studiesModels of early and late selection Evidence for each of the modelsParietal lobe and neglectFactors affecting people’s ability to divide their attentionStroop effect and conditions in which Stroop is minimizedCell phones/texting and drivingNeural consequences and control of attentionFeature vs conjunctive searchIllusory conjunctionExecutive control/general resourceRemember, not everything listed can be found in our notes, read the
