Compare differing conceptualizations of the mind and how the mind is studied.
Write an essay in which you make a statement and provide support for whether the mind and brain are fully separate or
whether they are one entity.
1. Compare differing conceptualizations of the mind and how the mind is studied.
2. Address the influence of internal and environmental conditions on what is recalled from certain kinds of memory/representations (e.g., things remembered rote, such as one’s phone number vs. interpreted things like a mother’s affect last time she was seen).
3. Determine the necessity for a one-to-one correspondence between a specific representation in the mind and a physico chemical condition in some specific neurons/synapses in the associated brain.
4. Analyze fundamental differences between representations from: (a) Visual stimuli vs. those from speech stimuli; (b) Experienced stimuli (instantiated; things that happened externally, the last pizza you ate) vs. imagined stimuli (uninstantiated; anticipating-imagining something for dinner that you’ve never had before).
