Neuropsychology
Lecture- 9.7.2016
What is neuropsychology?
The study of the relationship between the brain (nervous system) and behavior
Levels of Analysis
1. Behavior/action level
a. Observable to the outsider and insider (walking, playing piano, crying, talking)
b. Observable to the insider only (solving a differential equation, deciding to have a latte)
2. Structural level
a. Macroscopic
i. anatomical structure (lobes of brain, fiber tracts you can see with eyes)
1. Mostly focus on this
b. Microscopic
i. histological level (tissue level), cytological level (individual cell level); underlies
the macro level; layers, cell types, neurons, astrocytes
1. Wont do much of this
c. Chemical structure
i. how are membranes built? (composition, protein structures)
1. Rarely will do this
3. Functional levels
a. Physiological/chemical processes
i. Within and between the cells (cell specific) action potential propagation, or (in
general) endocytosis/exocytosis
1. won’t do much of this
b. Physical and chemical principles: ionic forces, oxidation/reduction
