  • List three parts of the brain and their function
  • Discuss the role of the nervous system
  • Discuss the interaction between hormones and behavior. 
  • Summarize the nature vs nurture debate 
  • Explain epigenetics 

Here below is the PDF of the EBook.  

This information can be found on Page 137-141 (Nervous System), Pg. 150 (Interaction Between Hormones and Behavior), Pg.163 (The 3 parts of the Brain (frontal, parietal, temporal lobes), Pgs.179-182 (Nature and Nurture), Pgs. 189-190 (Epigenetics)

It is not a long assignment, it is just little information on each.

Here is an Example of what I need:


  • List three parts of the brain and their function

– The frontal lobes are important for voluntary movement, expressive language and for managing higher level executive functions. Executive functions refer to a collection of cognitive skills including the capacity plan, organize, initiate, self-monitor and control one’s responses in order to achieve a goal. 

– The parietal lobe is vital for sensory perception and integration, including the management of taste, hearing, sight, touch, and smell. It is home to the brain’s primary somatic sensory cortex, a region where the brain interprets input from other areas of the body. 

– The temporal lobes sit behind the ears and are the second largest lobe. They are most commonly associated with processing auditory information and with the ding encouragement. 

  • Discuss the role of the nervous system

– The nervous system is the major controlling, regulatory, and communicating system in the body. It is the center of all mental activity including thought, learning and memory. Together with the endocrine system, the nervous system is responsible for regulating and maintaining homeostasis. 

  • Interaction Between Hormones and the Behavior: 

– They are very interesting to me because ever since a baby is born the genders are defined by colors just like gender reveals and how since the baby is a boy they dress him up in blueish colors and girls otherwise with pink. but like with the lecture of the monkeys where they don’t have that influence on them and yet due to the hormones in males or females the male monkeys chose male toys such as balls and trucks meanwhile female monkeys chose female toys such as dolls. 

  • Summarize the nature vs nurture debate

From what I gathered from the reading on Lumen.  There is a stronger correlation between genetics, suggesting a stronger leaning towards the “nature” stance in the debate.  However, it is also important to keep in mind that nurture (and/or environment/social expectations) can also have some impact on a person’s decisions making skills and actions.   

-Epigenetics is the study of how your behaviors and environment can cause changes that affect the way your genes work. Unlike genetics changes, epigenetic changes are reversible and do not change your DNA sequence, but they can change how your body read a DNA sequence.”
