Introduction to Neurological Bases of Behavior


The master of our whole life is the brain that controls all aspects of behavior from the molar to the molecules – the atmosphere within the tiny cranium. Millions of neurons and glial cells, constantly shooting, lead to the immorality we see or experience.

Pinel (2002) describes Biopsychology (additionally called psychobiology, behavioral biology, and behavioral neurosciences) as a scientific have a look at of behavioral biology.

Carlson (2005) calls it the physiology of conduct wherein the relationship between mind and life and behavioral modulators is the concern of studies.

We add a broad definition and simply state that “Behavioral Science aims to learn the behavior of the mind using all its techniques and methods”

Basic questions in brain and behavioral research

There are a few basic questions in brain research and behavior that are part of an ongoing and ongoing discussion,

• Are brain and behavior relationships governed by nature or genetics, genetics or the environment?

• Where did brain research begin (and who is the main participant, how far do we go)?

• How does the brain know what to do, where and what to say (people, places, and things)?

• How does the brain grow (the theory of evolution and evolution)?

• What and where are our moral standards being promoted?

• Why do we remember (smell, see, and relatives) and how do we remember these memories? Why do we forget, what can go wrong (Alzheimer’s)?

• Where do the pleasures, the pain, the addiction come from?

• What are the chemical sensors, what are the various electrical, electro-physiological, neurochemical, biochemical, and other changes occurring in the brain, where do the molecules go and what do they do?

• What happens if the systems do not work properly, does one affect the other, or do things continue as before?

• What happen after a brain injury – are we rebuilding?

• Why is it important for psychologists to know about the brain?

These are the questions that make reading the brain so much fun, and answer so many questions, which raise a lot of questions! Research is conducted 24 hours a day in some part of the world. Neurologists work day and night and obtain discovery, explanations of constructed or rejected opinions.
