Ted is a 21-year-old male who you recently started seeing in your psychology clinic. His friends tell you that he is impulsive, aggressive towards others, and lacks remorse. When his friends confront him about his behavior, he does not seem to care about how his actions hurt others. His family tells you that he was diagnosed with conduct disorder at age 12. As a psychologist, what mental disorder may Ted have given his symtoms?
Ted may have antisocial personality disorder. All of his symptoms that his friends describe are commonly seen in patients with this disorder. Additionally, a diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder requires patients to have evidence of a conduct disorder before age 15, which Ted had by age 12.
Choose the best alternative for the following sentence: I enjoy running outside in the Spring because it is great to go outside when there is nice weather occurring. A. NO CHANGE B. I enjoy Springtime when there is great weather and a good temperature. C. The Spring is my favorite season in which to run because there is always great weather then. D. I enjoy running in Spring because it has nice weather.
D is the best option. This is a question aimed at simplifying the sentence down as much as possible. The original sentence has two main ideas: that the person enjoys running in Spring, and that the reason they enjoy running in the Spring is because of the nice weather. Thus, we want to choose the simplest sentence that addresses both of those points. D is correct because it hits both of those points more concisely than the other options. A is not correct because the original sentence is much wordier than answer D. B is not correct because it omits any mention of running and therefore changes the meaning of the original sentence. C is also not correct because it is much wordier than answer D.

Sam is a neurologist. Recently, he saw a new patient who came to him because he has trouble producing coherent speech. He uses little to no grammar and struggles to articulate sounds. However, he seems to understand everything that Sam says to him. In which area of the brain might this patient have a problem?
This patient likely has a problem in Broca's area because this is the part of the brain that deals with speech production. Damage in this area would harm a person's ability to produce speech but not to understand speech.
