DISCUSS THE CONCEPT OF LOCALIZATION OF FUNCTION IN THE BRAIN
Discuss the concept of localization of function in the brain, including the old methodology of phrenology in comparison to the modern concept using functional neuroimaging. What are the problems with phrenology and does the modern methodology of localization of function have the same issues? Now discuss the concept of nature vs. nuture in brain development. Given that bigger brain size indicates more advanced behaviors in the animal world, do you think that larger human brains are linked to higher intelligence scores? How has this finding led to racial and/or gender discrimination in the past and what arguments can you make against these discriminatory practices based on the interaction of genetic and environmental factors in the brain?

Pretend that one of your friends just found out that you were taking Biopsychology this semester and asked you, “Hey, is it true that humans only use 10% of our brains?” How would you respond to them? In your answer, please describe how each of the 4 lobes of the brain is responsible for processing different information. To enhance your description, use an example of a single task or activity that would require the use of all 4 lobes of the brain
