The past twenty years have seen advancements in technology that were critical to further understanding concepts in cognitive psychology. Two such developments are positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. These scans allow researchers to “see” the brain in action. Research how brain scans can diagnose injury and disease using the Internet and the Argosy University online library resources. Based on your research, answer the following questions: • How do PET and MRI work?

Chapter 1 of your textbook provides an overview of the major subfields and concepts within the Social Sciences: anthropology, political science, economics, psychology, sociology, and history. Your post will be two paragraphs in length. In the first paragraph, select two of these subfields and identify two similarities between them. In thinking about similarities between disciplines, consider two of the following dimensions: scope, subject, methodology, goals, the definition of power, and the relationship between power and authority. Additionally, explain how and why your chosen subfields are similar along these dimensions.

• Describe the ethical issues related to cultural competence. • Examine the influence of your own personal values as related to the diversity issues presented in this case. Reflect on how you felt as you read the case study, how your values came into play, and how you would handle your values in a situation such as this. Course Case Study Joe, a thirty-five-year-old, male mental health counselor, received a client referral, thirty-five-year-old Jill, from a community counseling clinic. He began providing counseling services to her. Jill’s complaint was that she was unsatisfied with her current job as a bank teller and was experiencing mild anxiety and depression. Joe had been providing services to Jill for three weeks when she disclosed that she was confused about her sexuality because she experienced sexual attraction toward some women. Joe immediately responded to Jill with wide eyes and a shocked look.

The past twenty years have seen advancements in technology that were critical to further understanding concepts in cognitive psychology. Two such developments are positron emission tomography (PET) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans. These scans allow researchers to “see” the brain in action.
Research how brain scans can diagnose injury and disease using the Internet and the Argosy University online library resources. Based on your research, answer the following questions:
• How do PET and MRI work?
• If you were showing a person words while having an MRI, what brain areas would probably be active?
• If a brain injury victim is unable to move the right arm, in which area of the brain would an MRI scan most likely reveal damage?
• What kind of scan do you think would be best in diagnosing Alzheimer’s disease?
• How do the research tools (equipment and methodology) available today contribute to a greater understanding of “conscious processes and immediate experience” than was possible using trained introspection and structuralism?
PETs and MRIs also can diagnose head injuries. Consider the following scenario:
You are working at a Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital and meet with Allison. Allison is in the US Army and has just returned home from a deployment. During her deployment, a bomb was thrown into a vehicle in which she was riding. She was not severely injured but was told that she sustained a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI).
Respond to the following:
• Define TBI for Allison.
• Describe any symptoms that Allison might experience.
• How do you think the army should deal with these injuries? For example, if Allison is not obviously physically impaired, should she be discharged and receive disability pay? Should she be redeployed? If Allison stays in the army, what kinds of jobs do you think she should not perform?
