DESCRIBE THE ASPECTS OF POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY AND EXPLAIN ITS IMPACT ON THE STUDY AND APPLICATION OF PSYCHOLOGY.

We conclude our discussion assignments with an examination of a recent trend in psychology called positive psychology. It isn’t necessarily new but it does pose some different perceptions on how psychology should be viewed and applied. For this week, answer the following:
Describe the aspects of positive psychology and explain its impact on the study and application of psychology.

Write a three to four (3-4) page paper in which you:
Section 1 (1-2 paragraphs):

Choose one of the following areas of your brain and explain what it does:

Thalamus
Reticular formation
Brain stem (pons and medulla)
Cerebellum
Limbic system
One of the four lobes of the cerebral cortex

Explain how the area you described contributes to a specific activity from your everyday life.  (Example: During horseback riding, the cerebellum integrates information from the motor systems and balance system.)

Section 2 (1-2 paragraphs):
All of us have been shaped by both nature (biology) and nurture (environment), making us the persons we are today.  In most cases, it is difficult to completely disentangle the separate effects of nature vs. nurture with much certainty.  However, we can make some educated guesses based on our knowledge of familial tendencies that we may have inherited, as well as knowledge of our environment and experiences.  In this section, we ask for you to make some educated guesses about the roles of nature and nurture in your life.
