Quote: Quote: "In three words I can sum up everything I've learned about life: it goes on." - Robert Frost

Learning Targets:
★ Analyze how a person's biology can impact their behavior. 
1. Compare the different methods for peering into the human brain.
2. Analyze the areas that the brain controls?
3. Explain the structure and function of the neuron?
4. How does action potential function?
5. Explain the role of neurotransmitters in neural transmission? 

Major points to understand:
1. The different methods for peering into the human brain
2. What the areas does the brain control
3. The structure of the neuron
4. The action potential
5. The role of neurotransmitters in neural transmission

Key OBJECTIVES :
★ Distinguish between the Central Nervous System (CNS) and the Peripheral Nervous System (PNS)
★ Provide an overview of the peripheral nervous system, including its subdivisions.
★ Describe the main functions of the two types of nervous tissues.
★ Identify the location and various parts of the neuron and discuss their functions.
★ Describe the neural impulse and absolute refractory period.

Agenda:
1. DO NOW: Prepare Nature v. Nurture article
2. Discuss article. What does Nature via Nurture mean to you?
2. Notes, Video, Discussion: 

Assignment:
Work through the Learning Targets and answer the questions at the end over Biological Bases of Behavior
Read & Study the Notes and YouTube Lectures over Unit 2: Biological Basis of Behavior
BRAIN SKETCH DUE ON FRIDAY

Agenda:
1. DO NOW: Pick up article: What MS Feels Like
2. Discuss the article: How does MS impact someone's life? Where does the problem occur? It is in the neuroanatomy of the brain and Central Nervous System (CNS).
3. Notes, Video, Discussion: Neuroanatomy, The Neuron, The Nervous System, and how we study it through looking at disorders and disease. Specific focus on Multiple Sclerosis.
Notes: The Nervous System
4. Video & Discussion: Parts of the Brain. & Brain Scans

Assignment:
