    • What neurological disorder, disease, or accident took place to interrupt thisindividual’s ability? What behaviors were exhibited by this individual following thedisorder, disease, or accident? What were the individual’s deficits as a result of thisdisorder, disease, or accident? What treatments did the individual seek? Were anyavailable at the time? What are the research implications of the case study? How didthis help scientists and doctors better understand the disorder or disease? How didthis case help scientists and doctors better understand how the brain works?Note. Online students: Include substantive speaker notes.Ground students: Present a 10- to 15-minute presentation along with yourMicrosoft® Power Point® slides.· Format your presentation consistent with APA guidelines.PSYCH 575 Week 3 Learning Team Assignment Neurotransmitters Chart· Complete the University of Phoenix Material: Neurotransmitter Chart, located onthe student website.PSYCH 575 Week 4 Learning Team Assignment The Man Without a Memory Paper· Open an Internet search engine.· Search for and view the following video—Man without a Memory- Clive Wearing.· Address, in a 350- to 700-word paper, the following questions with your LearningTeam:o How would you define the relationship between learning something andremembering it?o What specific region of Clive’s brain is damaged to result in this memory loss?o How do you explain Clive’s loss of memory for most things, despite his lastingmemory for his wife and the piano?o If you were Clive, what memories would you miss the most?o How are emotions linked to memories? Provide some examples to support youranswers.Note. Online students: Use the Learning Team forum to engage in the discussion.Summarize the team discussion in a 350- to 700-word paper.PSYCH 575 Week 5 Individual Assignment Disorder Paper· Select a neurological, psychological, or neurodevelopmental disorder.
    • · Write a 2,450- to 3,500-word paper comparing and contrasting three therapeuticinterventions used to treat this disorder. Compare measures of effectiveness, suchas validity, efficacy, symptom and behavior management, and recidivism. Onetherapy should be cognitive in nature, one should be pharmacological in nature, andthe third should be an alternative therapeutic treatment.· Identify common symptoms associated with your disorder and rates of symptomreduction or management as reported with the three treatments. Based on yourresearch, what would be your approach to treating the condition? Identify whichtreatments you would use. Explain why.· Analyze the neurophysiological underpinnings of diseases and disorders.· Examine contemporary attitudes toward the three treatments you selected.PSYCH 575 Week 6 Learning Team Assignment Effect of Drug Use Presentation· Select one brain-altering drug—a street drug, a prescription drug, or a legal drug,such as alcohol or tobacco.· Create a 10- to 15-slide Microsoft® PowerPoint® presentation in which you addressthe following:Identify your drug and define its primary use in our culture. Identify rates of use andpopulations affected by using this drug. Discuss the regions of the brain affected bythis drug. How does this drug alter brain chemistry? How do high versus lowdoses of this drug compare in altering behavior, mood, and cognition? Discuss theimplications of one-time, casual, or long-term use on the physiology of the brain,and on behavior, mood, and cognition. If a person developed an addiction to thedrug you selected, what therapeutic interventions would be used to treat theaddiction?Discussions:What are the major underlying assumptions of physiological psychology? Whateffect do these assumptions have on psychology?What are some techniques or research methods used to examine the link betweenthe brain and behavior? What are some findings in biological psychology that canresult or have resulted from these techniques or research methods?Select two glial cells. Describe their structure and functions in the nervous system.In the brain, most excitatory communication in synapses occurs by way ofglutamate and most inhibitory communication occurs by way of gamma-aminobutyric acid. In general terms, describe what the other neurotransmitters do.
    • What are the five senses? What is the nature of sensation and perception, as theyapply to the five senses? In your opinion, which is more important, sensation orperception?Describe how vision, hearing, and motor control are affected in a person who suffersfrom a stroke.Explain the difference between positive emotions on memory and stressful orfearful emotions on memory. Why do positive life experiences last in long-termmemory, while stressful or fearful life experiences are often lost or buried in people’smemories?If we learn what we remember and remember what we learn, provide a neurologicalexplanation—the best you can with current findings—of why people withAlzheimer’s disease forget what they have learned and may have known fordecades.What is psychopharmacology? What are some positive aspects related topsychopharmacology? What are some drawbacks?Therapies have come a long way to help those with neurological, psychological, orneurodevelopmental disorders. Provide two cognitive and two pharmacologicaltherapies you believe are the most promising and why. Identify what disorders theyare designed to help.How does the use of alcohol affect pregnancy?
