Discussion Board

BB 2: HORMONES, STRESS REGULATION, ORPHAN BABIES VS. PRISON BABIES Chapter 2 of Born for Love explains the delicate interaction between the systems we have which help us to feel drawn to others and those that make us wary of others. Many of these systems center on the face, the cues that we read from one another, and how this supports (and interferes with empathy). a) Discuss some brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) involved in healthy brain function and empathy. Consider the following: norepinephrine, serotonin, dopamine, oxytocin, vasopressin, and cortisol. Does medication help to regulate behavior and stress? For example, what happens to prisoners in solitary according to Craig Hanley? b) How do oxytocin and vasopressin matter in boding? Use the story of Eugenia of Chapter 3 of Born for Love to compare and contrast orphan babies and prison babies. Were you surprised about the results Spitz found in 1945?

Due 7/21 ------- If genetic research clearly demonstrates the genetic etiology of certain disorders, should individuals who carry these genetic defects (that could be passed on to children) be allowed to reproduce? Share your views, discuss. ASAP -------- Identify the possible side effects on the developing fetus if a pregnant woman drinks, smokes, or takes some form of cocaine. Given that society often bears the burden of caring for children who are born addicted or are impaired developmentally from exposure to substances that a mother uses while pregnant, what, if anything should be done about women who abuse drugs while pregnant? ____ ________ Media Reaction 3 (min 250 words) Summarize video and react 7/23 _____________ Media Reaction 4 (min 250 words) Exploring the mind of a killer | Jim Fallon Psychopathic killers are the basis for some must-watch TV, but what really makes them tick? Neuroscientist Jim Fallon talks about brain scans and genetic analysis that may uncover the rotten wiring in the nature (and nurture) of murderers. In a too-strange-for-fiction twist, he shares a fascinating family history that makes his work chillingly personal. 8/5 ________ Media Reaction 5 (min 250 words) 8/10 ______ Media Reaction 6 Ali Carr-Chellman: Gaming to Re-engage Boys in Learning In her talk, Ali Carr-Chellman pinpoints three reasons boys are tuning out of school in droves, and lays out her bold plan to re-engage them: bringing their culture into the classroom, with new rules that let boys be boys, and video games that teach as well as entertain. _______- Before the due date of this midterm project, please interview one parent with a typical developing child or one parent with an atypical developing child (below the age of 12).
