Please find attached final exam. please respond in your own words, no plagiary.
True/False – Read each statement below carefully. Place a T on the line if you
think a statement it TRUE. Place an F on the line if you think the statement is
1. Emotions are subjective mental states that are associated with voluntary
physiological responses and changes in cognition.
2. Physiological sensations associated with emotional states are activated by the
autonomic nervous system.
3. According to the Cognitive Attribution Model of emotional processing,
autonomic physiological sensations determine the specific type of subjective
4. Subcortical brain regions organize subjective emotional states.
5. Brain lesion studies led to the conclusion that the cerebellar cortex regulates
emotional states and subsequent behavior.
6. Auditory hallucinations are an example of negative symptoms of schizophrenia.
7. The concordance rate for schizophrenia in monozygotic twins is 50%
8. Genetic factors act as an “on/off” switch for psychiatric disorders, including
schizophrenia and clinical depression.
9. Pyramidal neurons in the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus are disorganized at
the cellular level in patients suffering from schizophrenia.
10. Positron emission topography (PET) imaging studies report decreased neural
activity in the prefrontal cortex and amygdala of clinically depressed patients.
Please read each question below carefully and answer with as much detail as
you can. Your responses should be written in your own words and typed–any
outside sources should be cited within your response. Due to accessibility to
additional resources (i.e., time, textbook, internet) your responses should be
as thorough as possible.
11. What are emotions (as discussed in class lecture)? What are the three classic theories
of emotional processing that we discussed in lecture? (15 points)
12. Describe Schachter’s and Singer’s 1962 experiment. What theory of emotional
processing was being tested? Be sure to include the experiment’s hypotheses,
methods, results, and conclusions. (20 points)
13. In as much detail as possible, describe the nervous system’s fear circuit. Be sure to
start with stimuli entering sensory organs. Keep in mind terms such as “high
road” and “low road”. (20 points)
14. What is the dopamine hypothesis of schizophrenia? Use this hypothesis to describe
both typical and atypical antipsychotics. Is there a significant difference between
typical and atypical antipsychotics in effectiveness at alleviating schizophrenic
symptoms? (20 points)
15. What is the glutamate hypothesis of schizophrenia? Be sure to include the name of
the drug that led to the development of this hypothesis. (15 points)
