109. (BIOL219, PSYC109) Introduction to Brain and Behavior. (C) McLean, Kane. Living World Sector (All Classes). Introduction to the structure and function of the vertebrate nervous system. We begin with the cellular basis of neuronal activities, then discuss the physiological bases of motor control, sensory systems, motivated behaviors, and higher mental processes. This course is intended for students interested in the neurobiology of behavior, ranging from animal behaviors to clinical disorders.&nbs
Of gender roles is due to the fact that when looking at the roles individuals play within their specific gender, both biological factors and indentity factors must be included. As seen in the John/ Joan article by John Colapinto, there is a huge controversy between biological and socio-cultural theories of gender role development. Those who believe that gender role development is socio-cultural, think that a child can be born of one sex, and raised as the opposite, and can function normal
are that carry information away from the cell body. Axons may be as small as several microns or as long as several meters in giraffes and whales. The axons main job is to send a signal to the dendrites of another neuron, but some say that they may also receive signals in certain situations. Each neuron has only one axon, but the axon may have branches with what are called terminal buttons at its end.
“Sniper Charles Whitman, who killed several people from the University Tower at Texas, left a note behind that begged people to his brain for possible dysfunction. His autopsy revealed he had a tumor pressing into his amygdala.”

I don’t give evidence for some of the assumptions above (e.g. number 2 – there are some behavioural and psychological differences between male and female) as there is simply so much material around, and they are not disputed anyway. Assumptions 1, 4 and 5 are obviously true, and there is a lot of evidence supporting them.To conclude that a biological basis exists, the following seven assumptions need to be true:
