Chapter 3 Reading Prep Work The purpose of this weekly work is to help you recall and articulate class concepts, and to build deep understanding, long-term memory, and personal connections with the concepts. Write 4-5 sentence responses to these questions, and bring your work to class (either printed out, or be able to pull your work up electronically). This work is due in D2L Brightspace the night before class each week. Grading: Written (5 points): Full responses that show in-depth understanding, rewording of the concepts into your own words, and strong connections of the content with your own experience. In-class (5-points): Attendance and full participation discussing the concepts and your responses with a small group of peers, as well as participating in class activities that day. 1. Describe - or draw - basic components of the nervous system. At minimum, include these six terms: axon, dendrite, myelin, neurotransmitter, cerebral cortex, hemispheres. 2. Consider a young person's motor skill development. It can be your own child, a child in your life, or yourself (if you have an older family member who remembers these). Talk about their motor skill milestones using terminology that the authors use, and refer to dynamic systems theory. 3. Talk about the development (or research study) of depth perception in infants in 4-5 sentences of detail. You can describe cues that infants use to figure out and perceive depth, or the kind of research studies done with depth perception. Your writing should include at least 2 terms from the Depth section of our textbook on pages 81-82. 4. Find a Theory of Mind (TOM) false-belief test video online (or try one out in person if you have a preschooler in your life!). Describe the test, the age of the participant, and the results. How does that compare with the textbook information?
