Epigenetic influences mean that genetic expression can only be fully understood in the context of environment

  • Epigenetic influences mean that genetic expression can only be fully understood in the context of environment. Likewise, environmental influences may be quite different, depending on the particular genes that are present.  The intertwined effects of experience and gene expression have implications far beyond the theoretical questions of how cells in the developing brain interact with one another.  As society approaches the era when anyone might be able to have their entire genome decoded for a modest price, and scientists learn more about which genetic variants can increase or decrease the risk of mental health disorders, there is a greater need for understanding how genes can impact the human mind.

 

Examine the relationship between environment and gene expression, and consider ethical implications of genetic screening for medical and psychological disorders.

With these thoughts in mind:

 

Describe how environment and experience might impact gene expression. Explain why possessing a gene making one vulnerable to disease does not necessarily result in developing the disease. Finally, describe two ethical considerations when using genetic screening for medical and psychological disorders.

You will be attempting two discussion questions in this module worth 28 points each.

Discussion Question 1ImageryDescribe how you have used imagery as an athlete and/or for what purposes you have taught imagery as a coach to athletes. How are the ways you have used imagery similar or different to the ways athletes typically use imagery as presented in this module?

Based on your experiences, what do you believe is the most effective way to use imagery to enhance sport performance?Evaluation Criteria for Discussion Question Response:Described how you have used imagery as an athlete and/or coach.

[4 points]
Compared and contrasted the ways you have used imagery with the ways presented in the module.

[4 points]
Described the most effective way to use imagery substantiated with examples from personal/professional experience.

[8 points]Discussion Question 2Mental Rehearsal of Sports Skills

The research on imagery has shown that the mental rehearsal of sport skills has a small but significant effect on the actual performance of the skills. In other words, when research participants imagine performing a sport skill, they typically perform the skill better than those research participants that do not.

However, Moran (2004) pointed out that relatively few of these studies have used athletes as participants.

Most of the studies have been laboratory vs. field experiments or have used simple skills (such as dart throwing) vs. complex skills (such as golf swing), and the psychological mechanisms underlying the positive effects of imagery have not been adequately explained.

What conclusions do you draw about the effectiveness of imagery in improving the learning and performance of sport skills from comparing the literature findings with your experience?

What would you recommend to create a valid study about mental rehearsal?

Evaluation Criteria for Discussion Question Response:

Described conclusions. Discussed your conclusion about the effectiveness of imagery in improving the learning and performance of sports skills.
