    Ok I've finished my go-over of relationships! going to sleep now and refuel on coffee to finish bio-rythms etc and comparative psychology, I'm exhausted.

    Does anyone know if they can ask questions solely asking for studies? I've seen lots of fairly open questions 'discuss theories of relationship breakdown etc' and lots of 'discuss research (theories and/or studies) into relationship breakdown' but can they just ask for 'discuss studies into relationship breaddown' cause then I'm *****ed.

    By the way to anyone planning on only revising a couple of sections please don't - I did this last year and started revision 3 days before the exam, I got a big fat U despite having got three As the previous year - they even stuck a question in that I had never done in school before and wasn't in any of my revision books. grr.

    I keep trying to avoid this section but im doing it now.
    Well we need to know them to a certain degree incase of an application to education question.
    This is just too much....the results aren't indicative of how much you understand just how many rote learned facts you can write down in a set amount of time. im dreading tommorow, hopefully pya5 will be better.

    Really?! That's awful! Um, I don't think they can ask for just research/studies.. they used to but now they always ask for research and/or theories so I think you are okay. But what they can do is part the question, so a) discuss two theories into relationship maintenance/breakdown.. (12) b) evaluate one theory that you stated in a) (12)

    I posted how i'd answer that question in this thread a few hours ago, check it out and see if that's what you'd write, cos I have no idea if i've written enough, although I don't think I have

    Endogenous pacemakers are the bodies internal structures which sets our free running natural rhythm. They are used in controlling circadian rhythms (rhythms once every 24 hours), such as the sleep-wake cycle, and the temperature cycle.

    The internal body clock is controlled by the interactions of proteins, which increase and decrease during the day, so at the end of the day, a new cycle can be initiated. What controls the biological clock are the SCN and the pineal gland. The SCN is a bundle of nerves in the hypothalamus, which recieves input of light from the optic nerve, which adjusts the biological clock to fit in with the rhythm of the environment. The pineal gland also recieves input of light, and if there is dark, melatonin is secreted, if it is light, less melatonin is secreted. This is how the biological clock can also be adjusted.

    Exogenous zeitgebers are environmental factors which adjust the endogenous pacemakers to fit in with the environment. Researchers used to believe these were social cues, such as going to bed at a time suited to your age, which controlled your free running sleep-wake cycle. However, later research found that it is mainly controlled by light, which readjust your internal rhythm. Evidence from this comes from blind people who do not recieve the information of light, and have different sleeping patterns, such as those of 24.9 hours.
