that have been attributed to motivating behaviors such
as healthy eating. This includes the limbic system, the
hypothalamus, and also a variety of essential
neurotransmitters. These elements of the brain are the
key to motivating an individual to eat healthy. To fully
understand how these parts of the brain affect
motivation, it is important to delve into the underlying
functions associated with these areas of the brain.

Intrinsic factors are highly important to all factors of
motivation in life. Heredity is one of the main
influential factors behind intrinsic motivation. Eating
habits are often learned at an early age. Parents who do
not have healthy eating habits will typically pass on
these unhealthy habits to their children.

Comments / Grade
You did an introductory job in explaining how the brain coordinates with external factors to determine behavior.
The scenarios/examples that you were vivid and useful in exemplifying the concepts presented.
Good example of your high quality writing and clear thinking:
Intrinsic factors are highly important to all factors of motivation in life. Heredity is one of the main influential
factors behind intrinsic motivation. Eating habits are often learned at an early age. Parents who do not have healthy
eating habits will typically pass on these unhealthy habits to their children. What and how healthy one eats is a
result of what one has learned from the past, but it does not necessarily determine how one will adapt over the years.
In the past, the major reasons behind eating were accredited to basic survival. This factor has been a constant
element in human survival and is passed down throughout the generations. It is an inherent element that motivates
the behaviors of eating and it also has an influence on what and how much one chooses to eat.
Resources: Assigned readings, Electronic Reserve Readings, the Internet, and other sources
Select one of the following topics as the basis for this paper:
o Eating healthy
o Exercising
o Quitting smoking
o Quitting drinking
o Refraining from using drugs
A. Write a 1400-word paper in which you analyze the brain structures and functions associated with the
motivation to engage in your selected behavior.
B. Evaluate the influence of extrinsic and intrinsic factors, including heredity and the environment, on
