Question description

Part 1

The Brain and Psychological Influences

By increasing your understanding of theories that attempt to describe how your brain works, it is helpful to consider what you were born with and how your world has shaped you. You are, after all, not just a product of our brains and our bodies. In this Discussion Board, you will delve deeper into how your thinking and behavior is impacted by nature and nurture influences.

  • Explain what genes are, and how behavioral geneticists explain our human differences. 
  • Discuss the impact of heredity (nature) and environment (nurture) on a person.
  • Describe how evolutionary psychologists use natural selection to explain behavior tendencies. Do you agree with this? Why or why not?
Part 2

Human Development:

In this unit, you are learning more about human development and different influences. In this Discussion Board, take a closer look at a period of development that you find particularly important. We can all probably agree that no stage of human development is unimportant, but some impact us more based on periods of intense change or particular states of vulnerability.

  • Choose a period of development that is significant to you in some way (prenatal, infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, adolescence, or adulthood).
  • Describe what is going on during this time psychologically, socially, and culturally. Consider concepts such as attachment theory, parenting style, gender development, and cognitive development to further your discussion. 
  • Explain why this period of development is significant to you with regards to how it affects the way a person thinks and behaves.
