Which Brain Structures Would You Give Up?

Which Brain Structures Would You Give Up?


Suppose  you were the subject of a diabolical experiment looking at the  functions of the various brain areas.  A mad scientist wants to do  “removal studies” in order to isolate these functions.  The mad  scientist does have a heart, though- he lets his subjects decide which  brain structures they’d like to give up.

This assignment requires an understanding of the various parts of the brain and their role in our daily functioning.

This assignment fulfills/Supports:

  • Module Outcome: 1
  • Course Outcome: 1,3
  • General Education Competencies: 1,2,3,5

The Assignment:

For this Discussion Board, complete the following steps:

Step 1:

Review the various parts of the brain and their functions by visiting the 3D Brain website at http://www.g2conline.org/2022 (opens  in a new window).  For students who prefer an app, search for “3D  Brain” wherever you buy apps.  The app is free but you do have the  option to purchase an upgrade for a small fee.

You are only responsible for understanding the parts of the brain that are covered in your textbook.

Step 2:

In your initial post thoroughly discuss the following:

  1. If you were the subject in this heinous (and thankfully fictional) experiment, which three brain structures would you give up?  NOTE:  You must choose specific parts of the brain, not brain regions.   Students are not permitted to choose any of the four lobes or the  cerebral cortex for removal.  
  2. Explain the function of those three structures.  What is the role of each in your daily functioning?  Be specific.  DO NOT simply restate textbook information.
  3. Explain why you chose those structures and describe what your life would be like without them.  Again, be specific and DO NOT simply restate textbook information.  For example, if I chose my hippocampus for removal I would experience significant memory impairment.  As a result, it is unlikely that I would be able to work as an instructor (an inability to form new memories means I can’t remember what I just said, much less deliver an entire lecture).  I would also experience confusion about where I am and how I got there (again, removal or severe damage of the hippocampus results  in an inability to form new memories meaning I can’t remember what has  happened from one moment to the next).  However, it is possible that I  would still retain some long-term memories formed years before the “removal”, since those memories may have been moved to another part of the brain.

Citing Sources:    You must use APA style to reference your source(s) at the end of your  submission.  For this Discussion Board, you must include reference  information for your textbook and the 3D brain website or app.   Information on how to format reference information (including a  reference generator) in APA style can be found on the Purdue Online  Writing Lab website at https://owl.purdue.edu/owl/research_and_citation/apa_style/apa_formatting_and_style_guide/general_format.html (opens in a new window).

Acceptable Length: 300-500 word initial post; 2-3 sentence responses to at least three classmates.

Formatting Requirements:

  • Use 12-point Times New Roman or Arial font
  • Use double line spacing in the document
  • 1-inch margins all around
