  • 1. Psy 331: Introduction to Biopsychology Instructor: Dr. Jeanne Ryan
  • 2.  
  • 3.  
  • 4.  
  • 5. Why is this course so difficult?
    • 1. Because it involves an eclectic approach
        • Psychology
        • Biology
        • Physiology
        • Pharmacology
        • Anatomy
  • 6.
    • 2. Because Biopsychology is a subdiscipline of Neuroscience, which also encompasses various approaches to study the nervous system:
        • Neuroanatomy
        • Neurophysiology
        • Neurochemistry
        • Neuroendocrinology
        • Neuropharmacology
        • Neuropathology
  • 7.
    • 3. Because Biopsychology has Six Divisions that students must understand and learn:
      • a. Physiological Psychology
      • - direct manipulation
      • - pure research
      • b. Psychopharmacology
      • - pure research
      • - applied questions
  • 8.
    • c. Neuropsychology
      • - human research
      • - case studies & quasiexperimental
      • studies
      • d. Psychophysiology
      • - human research
      • - noninvasive techniques (e.g., EEG)
  • 9.
      • e. Cognitive Neuroscience
      • - usually human research
      • - noninvasive (e.g., functional Brain Imaging techniques)
      • f. Comparative Psychology
      • - evolutionary & genetic factors in behavior
      • - uses comparative and functional approaches
      • - lab research & study of animals in natural
      • environment (ethology)
  • 10.
    • Because Biopsychology utilizes
    • Converging Operations
    • Which involves several approaches when studying a phenomenon to compensate for the limitations of each individual approach.
    • Example: Does Lamictal for seizure disorders cause cognitive impairments?
    • Read about he Case of Jimmie G. (section 1.5)
  • 11.
    • Because Biopsychology, as in all disciplines of Psychology, requires Critical Thinking.
    • Let’s take a look at the prefrontal lobotomy
  • 12.  
  • 13.  
  • 14.  
  • 15. An assignment to help you with critical thinking:
