  • Q1
    A neurotransmitter that enables learning and memory and also triggers muscle contraction.
    Acetylcholine (ach)
    30s
  • Q2
    A neural impulse: a brief electrical charge that travels down an axon, The action potential is generated by the movement of positively changed atoms in and out of channels in the axon's membrane.
    Action potential
    30s
  • Q3
    A pair of endocrine glands just above the kidneys. The adrenals secrete the hormones epinephrine (adrenaline) and norepinephrine (noradrenaline), which help to arouse the body in times of stress.
    Adrenal glands
    30s
  • Q4
    Excite neurons by mimicking natural neurotransmitters or blocking their reuptake to keep more of them in your system. (pretends to be something else)
    Agonist
    30s
  • Q5
    A progressive and irreversible brain disorder characterized by gradual deterioration of memory, reasoning, language, and finally, physical functioning.
    Alzheimer's disease
    30s
  • Q6
    Two lima bean-sized neural clusters that are components of the limbic system and are linked to emotion.
    Amygdala
    30s

    Inhibit neural impulses by blocking receptor sites or diminishing their release.
    Antagonist
    30s
  • Q8

    Aphasia
    30s
  • Q9
    Areas of the cerebral cortex that are not involved in primary motor or sensory functions: rather, they are involved in higher mental functions such as learning, remembering, thinking, and speaking.
    Association areas
    30s
  • Q10
    The part of the peripheral nervous system that controls the glands and the muscles of the internal organs (such as the heart). Its sympathetic division arouses: its parasympathetic division calms.
    Autonomic nervous system
    30s
  • Q11
    The extension of a neuron, ending in branching terminal fibers, through which messages pass to other neurons of to muscles or glands.
    Axon
    30s
  • Q12
    A branch of psychology concerned with the links between biology and behavior. (some biological psychologists call themselves behavioral neuroscientists, neuropsychologists, behavior genetics, physiological psychologists, or bio-psychologists.)
    Biopsychology (biological psychology)
    30s
  • Q13
    The study of the relative power and limits of genetic ad environmental influences on behavior.
    Behavioral genetics
    30s
  • Q14
    The oldest part and central core of the brain, beginning where the spinal cord swells as it enters the skull: the brain-stem is responsible for automatic survival functions.
    Brainstem

    Central nervous system (CNS)
