    Can someone pls help me with this question? I'm confused as to how to link to the stem with the memory improvement strategies??

    A student was revising Bowlby’s theory of attachment. He was trying to remember thenames of some features of Bowlby’s theory, including: EvolutionCritical periodSocial releasing mechanismsMonotropyContinuity hypothesis Using your knowledge of strategies for memory improvement, explain how the studentcould memorise some of these features. Use examples from the list above.

    I reckon the easiest method to describe with these words would be elaborative rehearsal - so using Acronyms. Elaborative rehearsal is any memory method which makes the student think of the information in a new way. The student could use the first letter of each feature to create a new word, for example E from Evolution could become Elephants, C from Critical Period could become Can. The student would then arrange these words into a phrase which could be learnt and act as a cue for retrieving the original set of words. The phrase could be "Elephants can sometimes meet camels"

    12 marker on Working memory model hasn't come up for ages.

    AO1- Baddeley & Hitch
    3 parts: central executive, phonological loop & visuo spatial sketchpad

    AO2-
    -research lab studies -> lack ecological validity
    -Lierberman- blind have good spatial awareness -> argues VSS should be 2 stores
    -only looks at STM not much info in LTM
    -not much known about central executive as it cant be directly measured
    -evidence supporting -> word length effect Baddely (short words easier to recall)

    Anyone know any more ao2 points? Are those good enough? Obv in the exam they will be expanded

    Hopefully Multi Store Model, Working Memory, Disruption or Privation/Institutionalisation.

    So what are peoples predictions for the 12 Marker?
    Theres 5 main essay questions I would personally focus and keep an eye out for with some more likely than others based on my predictions.
    • The multi-store memory model is long over-due according to this table last turning up in January 2012. One to watch and the front-runner in my eyes.
    • The working memory model hasn’t come up as a proper 12 marker in a while although has made an appearance every year as a 4 marker, 6 marker and even an 8 marker for 5 consecutive papers. Its possible too but less likely than the Multi-store memory model in my opinion.
    • How research into attachment has influenced childcare practices – Its only ever come up as a 4 marker and although I’m not entirely convinced it can be a 12 marker (due to lack of material) I would keep an eye out for this.
    • The impact of daycare (on either aggression or peer relations)
    Outside chance:
    • Disruption of attachment (I would bet institutional is more likely than privation).

    12 Marker
    Cultural variations of attachment (research)

    -Van Ijzendoorn and squad, yeah, got that!

    I cant AO2 any other research very well

    I've got Fox who studied child rearing practices in Israel, so i'll analyse the Observational method etc...

    but that's 2 studies

    I have Grossman and Grossman (who said that different attachement types are viewed differently in different cultures) that's it though, how do i AO2 that??

    Same with Takawashi - He said parenting skills are different in different cultures...


    Could a valid AO2 point for either of these be that they dont consider Subcultures etc???
    Because it doesnt give a hint to any research method....
    Strengths:
    1) All studies apart from Grossman + Grossman found that secure attachmenr was the main attachment type giving consistancy throughout the studies and to the ideology that secure attachment is the best type of attachment for good social and emotional development.
    2) The strange situation has reliability due to blah blah
    3) Van Ijzendoorn + Kroonenberg meta-analysis is rich is data due to using 32 studies with over 2000 ss uses giving validity to the findings allowing for it to be generalised etc

    weaknesses:
    1) Believed mass media influences one type of attachment type that promotes the "best" parenting styles through tv, radios and parenting books, therefore it may not be that attachment is innate bur rather due to mass promotion

    2) Has ethnocentrism as SS is american based therefore using it as the standard to rate other cultures may be inaccurate

    3) Psychologists were not from the cultures therefore identifiying behaviours may not be classified in the same way to the culture as to how they are identifying it (similar to second point)

    these are brief btw

    I'd say that there is evidence for distinction between STM and LTM from people with amnesia. Shallice + Warrington studied KF; he could recall no more than 2 items in test, but had no problems with LTM.
