Assessment Instructions 
This assessment has two parts: Part A and Part B. Please complete this assessment in one document. The assessment should be a minimum of 4 pages, excluding the title page and reference page. Use the Capella library to research the material and support your responses.
Part A 
It is sometimes difficult to conceptualize how the different motivational theories are distinct, such as drive theory, incentive theory, arousal theory, and brain state theory. Also, neuroscientists across the country are using a wide range of approaches to define the nature of consciousness when philosophers have been debating the nature of consciousness for millennia. This part of the assessment will help you approach issues from each of the theoretical approaches. 
For this part of the assessment, complete the following:
  • Identify two common behaviors.
  • Hypothesize what might have prompted the behaviors from the perspective of each motivational theory (drive, 
incentive, arousal, brain state).
  • Discuss how others, such as advertisers, parents, managers, and so on, apply these different theories to influence 
behavior.

For each behavior, include the following headings in your paper. Write a 150–300-word response for each theory under each heading:

Behavior 1:

  • How Drive Theory Prompted This Behavior.
• How Incentive Theory Prompted This Behavior.
• How Arousal Theory Prompted This Behavior.
• How Brain State Theory Prompted This Behavior.

Behavior 2:

  • How Drive Theory Prompted This Behavior.
• How Incentive Theory Prompted This Behavior.
• How Arousal Theory Prompted This Behavior.
• How Brain State Theory Prompted This Behavior.

Part B

Memory acquisition involves different areas of the cortex depending on the type of information presented. Our ability to remember events and how to perform tasks affects our ability to work, interact with others, and understand the world around us. For this part of the assessment, assess the memory’s contribution to how we perceive the world by addressing the following:

 

  1. Outline memory acquisition.

TEMPLATE_PSYC-FP4310_00003: 2015-07-10 15:13:02.656454

  1. Consider you are building an electronic learning and memory system for a robot. Is there anything that you would change from the human design? Why or why not?
