Biological psychology

Biological psychology seeks to understand behavior from the biological perspective. It is, of necessity, interdisciplinary. This rapidly growing field has enabled scientists and clinicians to understand processes that are important in daily life and clinical conditions. Global surveys of neurologic and psychiatric conditions, including depression and anxiety disorders, find that 20–30% of the population has symptoms consistent with being diagnosed with a neurologic or psychiatric condition in any one year, and the lifetime incidence for being diagnosed with a few clinical conditions, such as Alzheimer’s disease, approaches 100%. Clearly, understanding the biological bases for these conditions provides a pathway for treatment, affecting positive social change. This week, you submit the first part of your Biologic Basis paper. In this portion of your final paper, you will identify and thoroughly describe a neurological condition, including the known neuroanatomy and neurophysiology as well as at least one treatment. To prepare: Part 1: Neurological Basis of Disorder: Current Knowledge, Treatments, and Impacts In approximately 5 pages, Describe your selected condition, including the incidence, symptoms, and societal impact. Describe the neurologic basis of the condition, including the known neuroanatomy and neurophysiology associated with the condition. Describe at least one treatment for the condition, considering how it impacts the biologic basis of the condition. Include Abstract and Introduction
