3 ) Explain how processes of the central and peripheral nervous systems underlie behavior and mental processes, including how neurons are the basis for neural communication.

•  Describing how neurons communicate, including the role of neurotransmitters in behavior and the electrochemical process
•  Comparing the effect of drugs and toxins on the brain and neurotransmitters
•  Describing how different sections of the brain have specialized yet interdependent functions, including functions of different lobes and hemispheres of the cerebral cortex and consequences of damage to specific sections of the brain
•  Describing different technologies used to study the brain and nervous system
•  Analyzing behavior genetics for its contribution to the understanding of behavior and mental processes, including differentiating between deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), chromosomes, and genes; identifying effects of chromosomal abnormalities; and explaining how genetics and environmental factors work together to determine inherited traits
