1. Biology

1.1. Nervous System

1.1.1. Peripheral Autonomic-self-regulated internal organs and glands Sympathetic Nervous System- simulates fight-or-flight response, maintains homeostasis Somatic Sensory input Motor Output-skeletal muscles

1.1.2. Central (brain and spinal cord)

1.2. The Brain

1.2.1. Association Areas Frontal lobe-personality, emotion and thinking Motivation Emotion-bodily arousal, expressive behavior, and conscious experience Personality Temporal-memory and language Hypothalamus-maitnenance functions and emotion Hippocampus-emotion, memory, and autonomic NS Amygdala-linked to emotion Occipital-vision Consciousness-awarness of self and environment Sleep Parietal-perception Perceptual Set-mental disposition to perceive on thing and not another Context effects-given stimulus that triggers radically different perceptions Motor cortex-movement Sensory Cortex-sensations Bottom-up=sensory receptors Top-down=creates meaning from sensory input

1.3. Plasticity-brain's ability to change especially during childhood from damage or experience

2. Development

2.1. Infancy

2.1.1. Social/emotional-biological attachment to parents through body contact and imprinting Baumrind's 4 parenting styles 1. Authoritative-mutual trust and respect, two-way communication 2.

3.1.2. Medical Model Biological: evolution, individual genes, brain structures and chemistry Social-cultural: roles, expectations, definitions of normality of disorder Psychological: stress, trauma, learned helplessness, mood-related perception and memories Transference-innappropriate repetition in the present of a relationship that was important in a person's childhood Rumination-tendency to repetitively think about the causes, situational factors, and consequences of one's negative emotional experience

3.1.3. Labeling Predicts course of the disorder Suggests appropriate treatment Prompts search into a disorder's cause

3.2. Types of Disorders

3.2.1. Learning ADHD-extrmem in attention and/or hyperactivity and impulsivity

3.2.2. Anxiety Panic disorder-sudden episodes of intense dread Phobias-person is intensely and irrational afraid of a specific object, activity or situation Agoraphobia-fear of places and situations that might cause panic, helplessness or embarrassment PTSD-haunting memories, nightmares, social withdrawal, jumpy anxiety, numbness of feeling and/or insomnia that lingers for 4 weeks after a dramatic experience

3.2.3.

4.2. Watson "Little Albert-behaviorism

4.3. Maslow-Hierarchy of Needs

5. Research Methods

5.1. Experimental-indep. variable manipulated

5.1.1. Classical Conditioning-CS, US, CR, UR Intrinsic motivation-one's own sake Extrinsic motivation-promised rewards

5.1.2. Reinforcement schedules- fixed-ratio-reienforced after a set number of responses variable-ratio- provide reinforcers after a seemingly unpredictable number of responses fixed-interval-reinforce the 1st response after a fixed period of time variable-interval-reinforce the 1st response after varying time periods

5.1.3. Operant Conditioning-behavior is strengthened or diminished

5.2. Descriptive-observe & record

5.3. Correlational-naturally occurring

6. Social Psychology

6.1. Attribution-process by which individuals explain the causes of behavior and events
