1a: Critically evaluate the impact of technology on behavioral neuroscience and behavioral genetics.

NOTE: Critical evaluation means to examine a topic from both positive and negative perspectives. Be sure to include in your answer both the advantages and the challenges that technological advances have presented to the fields of study above.

Answer both of the questions below.

4b: Imagine a relative not informed about such matters asks you, “What in the world do movement have to do with psychology!?” How would you answer, keeping in mind that your relative can’t be expected to know what you as a grad student studying biopsychology knows so you will need to include concrete examples of healthy mental function and psychological dysfunction related to human kinesthetics.
