Discussion section: Behavior is movement more than anything else. The output of the brain is seen chiefly in the secretions of the glands and the contraction of the muscles. We will consider the effects of hormonal secretions in the next topic. This week, consider our movements, which reflect the influences of the state of the body and the pressures of the environment.
Discussion 4 – How the Brain Coordinates Our Movements
Step 1: Address the following questions in discussion in one paragraph for each of the three question items:
