Discuss how each of these theoretical perspectives can explain human behavior in a general way. You should also explain which perspective you think is most valid.

 

This assignment is designed to test your understanding of biological psychology. As explained in chapter one of your text, there are three theoretical perspectives that attempt to biologically explain human behavior. These perspectives are evolutionary psychology, behavioral genetics, and behavioral neuroscience. You need to discuss how each of these theoretical perspectives can explain human behavior in a general way. You should also explain which perspective you think is most valid. Feel free to disagree with the theories, but be sure to support your argument with logic! You’ll need to draw significantly from your textbook, so pay careful attention to chapter 3 and chapter 8. Be sure to draw on the discussions in other chapters as well.
