    Explanation
    Wilhelm Wundt is known as the father of experimental psychology and made significant contributions to the field. He established the first formal laboratory for psychology at the University of Leipzig and promoted the idea of psychology being a science, similar to physics and chemistry. He also established the first journals dedicated to publishing research on psychology. However, there is no evidence or mention of Wundt studying psychology in Asia. Therefore, studying psychology in Asia is not one of his accomplishments.

    All the following are behaviorlist except?

    • A.

      Sigmund Freud

    • B.

      John B. Watson

    • E.

      Both a and d

    Correct Answer
    E. Both a and d
    Explanation
    The correct answer is "both a and d" because Sigmund Freud and James Olds are not behaviorists. Sigmund Freud was a psychoanalyst who focused on the unconscious mind and the role of childhood experiences in shaping behavior. James Olds was a neuroscientist who conducted research on the brain's reward system. In contrast, John B. Watson and Ivan Pavlov were behaviorists who believed that behavior could be explained by observable stimuli and responses.

  • 4. 

    Which of the following is NOT a step in the scientific investigation?

    • A.

    • E.

      Formulate a hypothesis

    Correct Answer
    C. Call APA for approval of investigation
    Explanation
    Calling APA for approval of investigation is not a step in the scientific investigation because APA (American Psychological Association) is an organization that provides guidelines and standards for conducting research in the field of psychology. While it is important to follow ethical guidelines and obtain necessary approvals for research, this specific step is not universally applicable to all scientific investigations.

    • D.

      APA Conference

    • E.

      Psychological recording

    Correct Answer
    D. APA Conference
    Explanation
    The APA Conference is not a data collection technique because it is a professional conference where psychologists gather to present and discuss research findings, theories, and advancements in the field. It is a platform for sharing knowledge and networking, rather than a method for collecting data.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    Which is not considered a positive correlation?

    • A.

      Greater studying time; increased scores on test

    • B.

      More practice of a sport; better preformance in that sport

    • C.

      The more milk you drank; the less chance you will break a bone

    • D.

      Both c and e

    • E.

      The more absences of a class; the lower the scores on a test

    Correct Answer
    D. Both c and e
    Explanation
    The given answer, "both c and e," is correct because both statements in option c and e describe negative correlations, not positive correlations. In option c, as the amount of milk consumed increases, the chance of breaking a bone decreases, indicating a negative correlation. Similarly, in option e, as the number of absences in a class increases, the scores on a test decrease, again representing a negative correlation. Positive correlation implies that as one variable increases, the other variable also increases.

  • 7. 

    All of the following are neurotransmitters except?

    • A.

      Hypothalamus

    • B.

      GABA

    • C.

      Serotonin

    • D.

      Acetylcholine

    • E.

      Dopamine

    Correct Answer
    A. Hypothalamus
    Explanation
    The question is asking for a neurotransmitter that is not included in the given options. The options provided are GABA, serotonin, acetylcholine, and dopamine, all of which are neurotransmitters. However, hypothalamus is not a neurotransmitter. The hypothalamus is a region in the brain that helps regulate various bodily functions, including hormone release, body temperature, and hunger. It does not function as a neurotransmitter itself.

  • 8. 

    The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is made up of nerves that connect to all the following areas except?

    • A.

      Heart

    • B.

    • C.

      Blood vessels

    • D.

      Smooth muscles

    • E.

      Hard muscles

    Correct Answer
    E. Hard muscles
    Explanation
    The autonomic nervous system (ANS) is responsible for regulating involuntary bodily functions. It controls the activity of organs such as the heart, glands, blood vessels, and smooth muscles. However, it does not directly control hard muscles, which are under the control of the somatic nervous system.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    The brain is composed of how many ventricles?

    • A.

      82

    • B.

      4

    • C.

      3

    • D.

      2,000,000,000

    • E.

      None

    Correct Answer
    B. 4
    Explanation
    The brain is composed of four ventricles. These ventricles are interconnected cavities filled with cerebrospinal fluid that help cushion and protect the brain. They also play a role in the production and circulation of cerebrospinal fluid, which helps maintain the chemical environment of the brain. The four ventricles are the two lateral ventricles, the third ventricle, and the fourth ventricle.

      Adrenal gland

    • B.

      Cerebrum

    • C.

      Amygdala

    • D.

      Corpus callosum

    • E.

      Reticular formation

    Correct Answer
    A. Adrenal gland
    Explanation
    The adrenal gland is not a part of the human brain. It is an endocrine gland located on top of the kidneys. The brain is composed of several parts, including the cerebrum, amygdala, corpus callosum, and reticular formation, which are involved in various functions such as cognition, emotion, communication between brain hemispheres, and regulation of arousal and sleep. However, the adrenal gland is responsible for producing hormones such as adrenaline and cortisol, which play a role in the body's response to stress and regulation of metabolism.
