    I just saw a video that said that you don't actually need to remember the names of the researchers who did the studies? It's important to know the big ones like Asch, Zimbardo, Milgram etc. but not the others?

    Does anyone know if this is true? Like can I get away with saying that "a study said..." and just note the method, findings and evaluation?

    Outline the biological approach to psychopathology (6 marks)

    The biological approach also known as the medical model to psychopathology suggests abnormality is caused by physical factors. Abnormality is caused by the malfunctioning of the brain and the systems in the body are used to explain abnormality.
    In biochemistry the dopa-mine hypothesis suggests that high levels of dopa-mine are related to the symptoms of schizophrenia.
    Abnormalities are sometimes a result of genetic inheritance. For example Torrey (2001) found that mothers of people who have schizophrenia had contacted a particular strain of influenza during pregnancy. This virus would enter the unborn child's brain leading to the symptoms of schizophrenia.
    Neurotransmitter serotonin is a biochemical which carries signals between the brain cells. High levels of serotonin have been associated with anxiety.
    The biological approach assumes abnormality can be treated like a physical condition and through focusing treatment on bodily functions.

    Could someone please tell me the marks out of 6 for this question. Thank you in advance.
    Not a baaaad response but I would say the influenza virus thing relates more to the "infection" explanation in the biological approach and perhaps genetics would be better explained by the Holland et al. study of the monozygotic (identical) and dizygotic (non-identical) twins? 56% of the monozygotic twins both had anorexia compared to just 5% of the dizygotic, which suggests a strong link between genetics and abnormality. You could also include a "neuroanatomy" explanation, as in people who are "abnormal" have a different brain structure. E.g. post-mortems on schizophrenics have shown that they have smaller brains overall with enlarged ventricles.

    Hope this helped! 😊

    This is true. Most topics only require you to know the actual research (how it was carried out and its findings). The name is the least important thing lol

    what does everybody want to come up for the 12 marker?
    On of the approaches of abnormality- preferably biological, or something to do with stress. Hope its not independent behaviour

    This is what i would struggle with. I would just evaluate methods of asch and milligram, historical trends in LOC and the negative implications of becoming more internal. The benefits of having people that show independence to bring about social change. Again not 100% sure about this but hope this guides you

    I sound so stupid but I've finished the entirety of the PSYA2 topics but do we actually need to know Zimbardo? I mean, there aren't and link-in studies to it, whereas Milgram gets slaughtered in terms of AO2 and has so many variations and explanations that it would be much better to do a 12 / 8 mark on, whereas Zimbardo doesn't really do the same???? Apart from a basic summary of the prison study and the basic ethical criticisms at least, but isn't Milgram more important??

    Definitely use Milgram as your main study for any 8/12 mark questions, I'd just learn the findings of Zimbardo in which you can use to support your evaluation!

    How many times do i have to ask for a bloody response been a week now

    does this get me 2 marks

    the limitation of the multi store model is that the model is oversimplified as it it complicated such as the features and the process of how memory moves to another
    how many marks does this get me

    someone please answer

    Thanks a lot. I highly doubt we will be asked to evaluate something like that anyway, but better safe than sorry!

    How do you outline the behavioral approach as a 6 marker?
    3 assumptions- all behaviour is learnt, what has been learnt can be unlearnt, abnormal behaviour is learnt in the same way as normal behaviour

    Classical conditioning: learning via associations, an UCS produces a natural response (fear) if you associate this with a Neutral stimulus then it will produce the same response. If repeated the NS becomes the CS and will produce the original fear response. Then use Little albert to demonstrate this.

    Operant conditioning: learning through reinforcement, pos., neg. (bad things taken away) and punishment. S if abnormal behaviour is rewarded then it will be repeated

    Social learning: Vicarous reinforcement and punishment, if see others be successful then likely to repeat the behaviour. E.g. anorexia- models skinny and famous so are being rewarded for being skinny, makes the person think they need to lose weight to be successful and famous.
