    I didn't but I think you should briefly mention PET scans and brain fingerprinting etc

    I'm not sure about the stress part but with the economy a question could come up asking how psychotherapy has helped the economy. You could say treatments for depression like CBT have led to more people taking less time off work and this means less strain on the NHS financially as less people will be buying drugs and will have CbT. Im not sure tbh

    Guys do we need to know the 2 types of stress response....as in the acute stress response and the chronic stress response. Also also someone else asked this previously but no-one answered, do we need to know about the diencaphalon and cerebrum and cerabellum and medulla?


    PLEASE HELPPP oooooooo
    I don't think you have to know about that, just what the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system do in response to a perceived stressor

    It's evidence to support schemas, so yes.

    You'd need to know:
    the physiological signs of fight or flight.
    The different areas of the brain.

    You can use anything for the economy questions. Eg, Research into sleep has improved efficiency in shift workers but research into mental health and its treatment has a) led to more people having paid off work b) misdiagnosis c) transformations to millions of lives for the better.

    Or when bowlbys research was first published it led to an increase in women leaving work to stay with their children, which had a negative effect on society.

    So is it right to kinda expect the 2x 12 mark essays to be on approaches and psychopathology?
