    Papers in 2009 were part of a different spec so I'm assuming the current spec doesn't include that topic. Meaning you shouldn't get a question like that this year

    do we need to know about the sympathetic and parasympathetic route specifically in terms of the sympathomedullary pathway?
    Yes you need to learn the biology of the stress.

    Could someone please help and explain to me these 4 things: why people conform, why people obey, why people resist obedience and why people resist conformity. My teacher rushed through these topics and didn't explain them well :/
    People conform because, they either have an external locus of control which means they are easily influenced by outside forces or they could be conforming because they are unsure what to do in a certain situation or as shown in Asche's study they may conform to stop being socially excluded.

    They may resist conformity if:

    They have a high internal locus of control.
    Opposes their morals
    Others resist conformity
    The group number is less than 3
    The task is too simplistic and easy for a clear answer.
    If they are allowed to answer in private rather than public.

    People may obey because of three factors: Gradual commitment, Legitimate authority and the agentic state.

    In the gradual commitment people feel committed to a cause and they do not want to let the person down, they feel obliged to do something. For example in Milgram's study they started on dishing out 15 volts and ended up on 450.

    If the person is perceived as a legitimate status figure then people are more likely to obey because we are socialised to believe that some people have the right to have social control over us. For example Hofling's study or Bickman's shows this.

    The agentic state is when a person believes that someone else (another agency) will take the blame and therefore they continue to be obedient. This was shown in Milgram's study the participants believe the researcher in the white coat was responsible.

    They resistance of obedience depends on a few factors:

    The proximity of the authority figure
    The status of the figure
    Social support - (If others disobey)
    Humanisation of the victim.

    Do we need to learn the psychosexual stages of development in detail: so oral, anal, phallic, latency and genital?

    I know on the specification it talks about cardiovascular and stress.
    However, my teacher said we don't need to know about it and I haven't seen it in the past papers yet.
    What do we need to know about it?
    all i know is about the link between the two very briefly which is, if acute stress happens a lot then it can lead to heart attack/disease and in the workplace there are two studies (Russek and Marmot) who look into the link between high stress jobs and cardiovascular disease

    Could someone outline exactly what the procedure is for ECT


    Posted from TSR Mobile

    - A person is given general anesthetic and muscle relaxant as well as a breathing tube.
    - They are then shocked with 0.6 amp of electricity for 0.5 seconds in the brain.
    -This causes convulsion which last for a minute.
    -The person is administered this treatment 3 times a week, and up to 15 times.

    How much would I need to write for 6 marks of AO1 about the psychodynamic approach e.g. can I just mention the id, ego and superego and ego defence mechanisms or would I have to include the stages of development as well. Same goes for the biological approach; can I just mention like genes and neuroanatomy or do I have to talk about all four???

    It is unlikely they would give us a discuss question on minority influence but if you want A02, Moscovici had done a study on colours on female participants you could look at.
