Neural Firing & Neural Communication

Greetings, all! Over the next several days in class we will be learning much more about how neurons work to enable thought and sensation. In particular, we'll spend a great deal of time learning about neural firing and neural transmission.

In order to familiarize you with these basic processes and their associated terminology, I'm asking you to complete this worksheet in time for Monday's class. In order to finish it, you'll need to work through this PsychSim Module on Neural Messaging. (Click, "Neural Messages" on the index screen.)You navigate the module using the "next" and "back" buttons at the bottom of the screen, for those of you who might miss that.

Also, for those of you who would like to earn back a few points on your last test, an opportunity: if you complete this module on correlations (Click, "Correlation Analysis" on the index screen) and the accompanying worksheet you were given in class by Wednesday, Sept. 26, you'll get three points added to that test score. It will be good review on those types of statistics, which caused confusion for some of us on the test.
