    In the specification it says reference to excitation and inhibition.
    What are those? I am not familiar with them.
    Excitation: causes positive charge neurons more likely to fire
    Inhibition: causes negative charge and neurons LESS likely to fire...
    Maybe...but Idk...someone else help?

    The function of the neurons.
    Excitation and Inhibition.
    Excitation is when the neurotransmitter stimulates a positive reaction in the receptor resulting in ACTION POTENTIAL basically the message is passed on.
    Inhibition is the opposit, neg reaction in receptor resulting in decreased action potential so no message is passed on.

    Hello everyone.
    Do we need to know about the behavioural approach to explaining and treating phobias, depression and OCD or is it just phobias?

    Just note about what genes are. What genotype and phenotypes are. Also note about the biological structure and what it is.

    Then talk about neurotransmitters and what those are and what they do. Make sure you include the twi different types of neurotransmitters- Excitatory and inhibitory and explain what those are and what they do.

    Then finally describe what hormones are and what they do.

    Then you include around 2-3 evaluation points and elaborate on those and you'll hopefully get 11/12 or 12/12.

    Good luck tomorrow, I'll be doing the exam too and I'm nervous because I feel like its harder

    Just did this exam as a mock, I messed up so bad! Unless I can get full marks on unit 2 (which isn't happening), I believe I'm finished
