create a transcript of a “mock interview” you conduct with a researcher in the field of neuropsychology. The mock interview should focus on how brain cells develop and
also how they degenerate. You should ask the researcher the following questions and then create a transcript of your interview:
1.Describe the development of the brain. Is the brain completely developed at birth or does the development continue throughout childhood? Describe the concept of
synaptic pruning and how this process impacts behavior. At which stage in the lifespan is brain development considered complete?
2.Describe some factors that result in the degeneration of brain cells.
3.Provide an example of a disease that causes the degeneration of brain cells. Which areas of the brain are impacted by this disease? What are some of the symptoms of
this disease? Are there any treatments to stop the degeneration of the brain cells? How does the degeneration of the brain cells impact behavior?
s it possible to grow new brain cells during adulthood or after brain damage? Explain the concept of neuroplasticity.
The transcript you create should be conversational and should also include any follow-up questions you ask in response to the initial answers you are provided with
during this mock interview. Please remember to use scholarly resources to support the information provided in your interview transcript.
