Study Guide to Accompany Physiological Psychology Brown/Wallace accompanies and supplements Brown and Wallace’s book on physiological psychology. This book discusses three key philosophical issues that provide a framework for the science of physiological psychology— mind-body problem, localization of function, and nature vs. nurture. Study and objective questions that include short answer essays, identification and definition of terms, fill-in-the-blanks, multiple choice, and matching questions are also provided to indicate the reader’s mastery of the chapters. Other topics covered include the axonal conduction, synaptic transmission, overview of the nervous system, and introduction to the senses and vision. The chemical senses, somatosensory and vestibular systems, motor system of the brain, and sexual behavior are also elaborated. This text likewise deliberates the biological rhythms and sleep and plasticity in the nervous system. This publication is valuable to students taking an introductory course in behavioral science or biology.
