Chapter 1 Introduction to Psychology
Which theory is most like me? Unit 1 Choice 1
After reading your assignment for this module, write a paragraph describing the principles (basic ideas) of the theory below that you think is most similar to your beliefs about human behavior and explain why you think this theory is similar to your personal beliefs.
Chapter 2 Psychological Research Unit 1 Choice 2
Recently a study was published in the journal, Nutrition and Cancer, which established a negative correlation between coffee consumption and breast cancer. Specifically, it was found that women consuming more than 5 cups of coffee a day were less likely to develop breast cancer than women who never consumed coffee (Lowcock, Cotterchio, Anderson, Boucher, & El-Sohemy, 2013). Imagine you see a newspaper story about this research that says, â€œCoffee Protects Against Cancer.â€ Why is this headline misleading and why would a more accurate headline draw less interest? For this assignment, remember that we are studying research methods in chapter 2. Your response must discuss research methods.
Chapter 3 Biopsychology Unit 1 Choice 3
Write a paragraph discussing a concept from the Biopsychology Module that you found to have some personal relevance or special meaning. Explain why learning about this topic is important to you. For example, my first husband had Parkinson’s disease. So, I might write about the transmission of neuro-chemicals such as dopamine and how the inefficient transfer or lack of dopamine is the cause of Parkinson’s.
