Targets: Part I - Biological Bases of Behavior - TARGETS
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

2. Notes, Video, & Discussion: The Curious Case of Phineas Gage
The whacky story of Phineas P. Gage: The man who took an iron rod through the head, and lived to tell about it!
He was never quite "Phineas" again though.

Quote"Every man dies. Not every man really lives." - William Wallace

AGENDA:

1. DO NOW: Draw the brain on a sheet of paper. Use the drawing on the screen to assist you. We will label the lobes today. 
2. Students will read the article & discussWhat Does MS Feel Like? by Julie Stachowiak, Ph.D.

Neuron: Review. 
Nervous System: ANS, PNS, CNS

3. Notes, Video, Discussion
Lobes of the Brain; Parts/Functions of the Brain; The Teen Brain
Parts/Functions of the Brain; Endocrine System compared to Nervous System. Also, the Teen Brain (with video)

4. (if time)  Crash Course Psychology #4 - The Brain 
In this episode of Crash Course Psychology, we get to meet the brain. Hank talks us through the Central Nervous System, the ancestral structures of the brain, the limbic system, and new structures of the brain. Plus, what does Phineas Gage have to do with all of this? 
Students will take notes; Duez will pause & discuss important points throughout.
