2. Describe your ideas/understanding about the role of how one is reared (environment-experience) and the role of genes (inheredited tendicies) in determining behavior changed?
3. Now that you know how information is communicated in the nervous system, especially the brain, does this knowledge change how you think about the “true cause” of human behavior? For example, are we humans really in control of what we think and do, or are we controlled by our neurons and neurotransmitters?
