Brain Response of Behavior
Note: Parts II and III follow below, complete all three.
Neurons process information through signals or nerve impulses in the brain. These are referred to as action potentials and the action is carried through two types of process. These processes are electrical and chemical synapse. Nerve impulse is the electrical signal reach from the chemical signal. the neuron receives it from another neuron through its dendrites. That chemical reaction between neurons is called a terminal buttons. The result, neurotransmitters are released which in turn transmit the message to the next neuron.

A person can lack some neurotransmitters or receive to many and can cause problems to a human body.
Some of the neurotransmitters that affect on human behavior below are:
• Dopamine: Implicated in behaviors and emotions
• Serotonin: Sleep, dream, eating, pain, aggressive behavior and mood.
• Glycene: spinal cord and lower brain centers inhibition
• Acetylcholine: Attention, motivation memory and muscle action.
• Endorphins: Pain inhibitor released during exhaustion exercise
A brain consist of several regions and each region is responsible for particular activity needed for living our lives. It is divided in three different divisions: central core, cerebral cortex, and limbic system.
The central core of the brain is divided by five main areas; pons, medulla, thalamus, cerebellum and reticular formation(2001). The whole brain regulates all functions by knowing every part of it manages tasks that are within the function of a main function. Medulla has the control for breathing, sleeping, and blood pressure that meets the adequate needs of the body. The pons job is to function dream and awake phase of the brain. The cerebellum is responsible for coordination of the body and equilibrium. Thalamus function starts with interpreting different information and assigning it to the correct areas. Brain stimulation is prepares during sleeping and is transferred by the reticular formation signals.
Limbic system plays a role of stress reliever are related to self protection such as fear and anger. The limbic system is also a noble controller of the nervous system. The limbic system regions are hippocampus and amygdala. They are both responsible for the memory functions. Hippocampus primary role is regulated toward memory through learning. The amygdala is involved in regulation of emotions. Amydala regulars feelings of pleasure of life like eating or sex.
Cerebral cortex takes care of all of our sensations and is responsible for though comprehension, ideas, language, memory, and emotions. The cerebral cortex is the biggest part and has two hemispheres which are right and left. The hemispheres consist of four lobes each lobe having an expressive function than the other.(2001)
The frontal love control behavioral activities such as decision making, setting goals and planning. Parietal lobe supports understanding, concentrate, visual, sensory and spatial operation of the brain. The Temporal lobe which indentifies auditory and visual information of the brain. It assists in language comprehension smell and balance process. And lastly occipital lobe is the process of visual information received to temporal and parietal lobe
The sensory of processing is...
