Psychology 2600 Midterm 2 Review Sheet NOTE: This is intended as a general guide to help focus your studying efforts. You are still responsible for reading the assigned chapters and attending the lectures. There will be questions on the midterms and the final exam that cover material from the textbook, and from the lectures. Not everything in the textbook is in the lectures, and not everything in the lectures is in the textbook. However, if something was in the textbook and in the lectures, you only need to know it at the level of depth that we discussed in class. General Tips:  There will not be questions that test knowledge of dates.  Any little trivial boxes or applied studies in the textbook are not on the test.  Any examples, practice activities, or classmate comments are not on the test. This test should do TWO things: 1. Test you on the core concepts you will need to further your education in psychology. That is, the test will focus on the main topics I hope you will retain after this course – not the trivial details of individual studies or side stories. 2. Be challenging enough to be worthy of university credit. Students who are not taking this class, and never watched a lecture should not be able to pass this exam. However, if you understand the core concepts and can understand most of the main ideas, then you should perform well on this test.  Predecessors of Biological Research in Pesronality  Galen Medicine  Ayurveda  Phrenology  Modern Physiological Personality Research  Effects of brain damage  Prefrontal cortex  Asymmetrical Brain Activity  Left versus Right  Sweat Gland  Blood pressure  Hormones  Hebb’s Theory of Arousal  Application to Introverts & Extraverts  Sensory Deprivation  Gray’s BIS/BAS Theory  Ambitions  Learning Styles  Morningness-Eveningness  Circadian Rhythms  MAO  Dopamine  Serotonin  Nonepinepherine  Survival Adaptation  Altruism  Tribalism & Youth  Universal Emotions  Potential for Goodness  Sexual Adaptation  Males  Reproductive possibilities  Guarantee of paternity  Aggression  Females  Investment in offspring  Quality of genetics  K-strategy  Sensitivity to Jealousy (sexual vs. emotional)  Mate selection  Fertility  Access to Resources  Personality  Freud  Psychic Energy  Libido  Thanatos  Levels of Consciousness  Conscious  Preconscious  Unconscious  Three parts of the mind  Id  Ego  Superego  Anxiety  Objective anxiety  Neurotic anxiety  Moralistic anxiety  Psychosexual stages of development  Oral  Anal  Phallic  Latency  Genital  Intrapsychic after Freud  Unconsicous  Self-esteem conflict  Narcissism  Erik Erikson  Psychosocial Stages of Development  Tr
