Psychology book Passage question #3

Post by SungHoonPark97 » Mon Jul 09, 2018 6:40 pm

Question 3 (attached 1st below) asked which disorder could lead to problems with aggression via the temporal lobe.

In the passage, it stated that low activity in the amygdala region of the temporal lobe results in antisocial personality disorder and perhaps lack of feeling aversive behaviors such as fear (2nd attachment)

Therefore, I believed that the answer would be Schizoid disorder where the patient is indifference to social relationships, with a limited range of emotional expression and experience (which fits the description of the passage fairly well).

However, the answer choice said the correct answer choice was epilepsy aka seizure disorder, but does not really give any reason for why. It simply states "Epilepsy can affect the temporal lobe," which was not mentioned in the passage at all (3rd attachment).

Could you give me a better reasoning on why epilepsy is more correct than Schizoid disorder?

Schizoid disorder does not typically involve aggression, and does not typically affect the temporal lobe specifically.
