Please respond in APA format



What is the relationship between language and cognition? This question is important for psychologists, linguists, and educators, as well as professionals from many other disciplines. For normally developing children, research shows that there is a typical development sequence in both language and cognitive development. For instance, most children learn how to make words plural before they learn how to use the past tense. Likewise, in cognitive development, younger children think more concretely before they develop the ability to reason and think abstractly.

Theorists and researchers have established the parameters and documented many of the products of human language and cognitive development but are still working to determine how these developments occur and the precise relationship between language and cognition. Likewise, many researchers are exploring new areas related to atypical development and factors that may increase human capacity for language and cognition.

For this Discussion, you are asked to share an area of language study about which you are interested in learning more and provide resources to your colleagues about the topics of interest they identified.

To prepare:

· Review the Learning Resources, including the media, and begin to consider what language is and how it develops in the human brain.

· Select one topic from this week’s Learning Resources that you found interesting (e.g., communication development in infancy, the biological basis of language or cognition, social cognition).

With these thoughts in mind:

Post an explanation of the idea or concept that you selected and why you find it interesting or compelling. What about this idea or concept do you want to learn more about? Use terminology from the Learning Resources in your post.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources. Use proper APA format and citations.

Discussion Board Assignment #2

Please read over MMPI codes and what they represent /how they are interpreted (for instance what does the #2 scale identify?).

*Discuss the uses and pros/cons of the MMPI-2 and the MMPI-A.  They are “tried and true” according to many clinicians.*When would the MMPI-A be appropriate for use?


How do you feel about its use based on your readings and research?


  Case Study

From your course textbook In the Family: A Case Workbook to Accompany Human Genetics: Concepts and Applications, read the assigned case study in the following chapter:

“Beyond Mendel’s Laws”

“Long QT Syndrome”

In a 3page Microsoft Word document, create a work sheet by answering the Questions for Research and Discussion provided for each case study.

Cite any sources in APA format. The case study questions are below

10.Discuss how incomplete penetrance, variable expressivity, pleiotropy, and genetic heterogeneity can affect the severity of a disease in a family. 

11. A person can lower risk of preventable types of cardiovascular disease by exercising regularly and following a diet low in saturated fats and simple carbohydrates and high in fruits and vegetables. Why are these approaches ineffective against long QT syndrome? 

12. Explain how the molecular bases of the various forms of long QT syndrome make genetic heterogeneity very likely

19. List the evidence that Peter’s synesthesia is not the result of his LSD use. 

20. Discuss how genome-wide association studies and brain imaging have contributed to our understanding of synesthesia. 

21. Suggest an experiment that can distinguish whether synesthesia is inherited or a learned behavior.
