b. unilateral damage to both the left parietal and occipital lobes

c. bilateral damage to both the temporal and occipital lobes

d. bilateral damage to both the parietal and occipital lobes

e. none of the above statements describes the damage suffered by prosopagnosia patients


2. (2 pts.) According to lecture, the majority of associative agnosia patients have:

a. unilateral damage to both the right temporal and occipital lobes

b. unilateral damage to both the right parietal and occipital lobes

c. unilateral damage to both the left temporal and occipital lobes

d. unilateral damage to both the left parietal and occipital lobes

e. none of the above statements describes the damage suffered by associative agnosia patients


3. (2 pts.) Which of the following statements about the ventromedial hypothalamus (VMH) is FALSE?

a. The weight gain following VMH lesions eventually stabilizes and the rat returns to its pre-lesion weight.

b. VMH-lesioned rats exhibit hyperphagia

c. VMH lesions lead to increased insulin production

d. VMH-lesioned rats show decreased stomach motility, leading to greater weight gain

e. When given normal or sweetened food, many VMH-lesioned rats will eat day and night.

4. (2 pts.) Which of the following statements regarding the lateral hypothalamus is TRUE?

a. Inhibition of the lateral hypothalamus leads to increased cephalic reflexes and eating behaviors

b. Lesions to the lateral hypothalamus will result in hyperphagia

c. The lateral hypothalamus is activated (excited) by food itself, but not by the mere sight of food

d. Adipsia can often result from lesions to the lateral hypothalamus

e. None of the above statements are true.



True/False:
5. (2 pts.) T or F: The pars triangularis and the pars opercularis are more commonly known as Broca’s area.
6. (2 pts.) T or F: According to the article on anorexia/bulimia that we read for class, cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) plus pharmacological treatment was significantly more effective than all other forms of treatment.
7. (2 pts.) T or F: When electrically stimulated (excited) the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) inhibits the nucleus of the solitary tract (NST) and the dorsal motor vagus (DMV).
8. ( 2 pts.) T or F: According to the article on bulimia/anorexia that you read for class, in general, pharmacological treatments have been more effective in treating bulimia than in treating anorexia.
Questions 9-13: (1 pt. each) Use your scantron sheet to indicate whether the following statements apply to apperceptive agnosia (mark bubble A on your scantron) or associative agnosia (mark bubble B):
9. More likely to be seen following damage to the “where is it” system

10. Problems forming a complete visual picture of degraded stimuli (e.g. a figure made of unconnected dots)

11. Difficulty assembling a proper visual description of an object from a description of its parts

12. Difficulty performing the matching-by-function test

13. Failure with object constancy
Fill-in:
16. (3 pts.) _________________________ is a specific type of agnosia in which patients have difficulties recognizing faces. Give two CONCRETE examples by which patients can overcome this deficit in order to successfully identify a person.

Example 1:


Example 2:

Essay: (6 pts) Illustrate how a patient suffering from contralateral neglect would perform on both a line bisection test and a task in which they were asked to look at a clock and copy the clock. What is the location of the lesion that generally results in contralateral neglect (specify lobe and hemisphere). Why does this disorder generally follow damage to areas in one hemisphere but not to the same analogous areas in the opposite hemisphere?

Essay: (4 pts.) Describe how rats with lesions to the paraventricular nucleus (PVN) differ in their eating behavior from rats with lesions to the ventromedial hypothalamus.

Essay: (6 pts.) What is the grandmother cell theory. Give two reasons for and two reasons against the grandmother cell theory. Name and describe the theory that replaced the grandmother cell theory.

Essay: (4 pts.) Briefly, explain 1) how leptin leads to decreased food intake in mice with the Obese gene and 2) why leptin hasn’t been shown to be effective in human trials.

Essay (4 pts.) What is the below graph trying to say? (In your answer you should include a definition of an ERP and describe what the N400 and the P560 are, including why they are called the N400 and P560).



You do not need to take of the rest of the page answering this question!!!!!!!!! Leave the novel writing to me!!!!!
(

(18 pts.) In the diagram of the Wernicke-Lichtheim-Geschwind model to the right what is “M”, “A”, “B” and the line that connects A and M (hint - the answer isn’t Texas!!!). Describe the symptoms (and name the disorder when appropriate) that would follow lesions indicated by the red slashes on the diagram to the right (you can skip the transection of line BM) . Be as specific as possible when describing the symptoms (And give CONCRETE examples to illustrate your point!)
