    Also for resisting conformity is it:
    -high internal LOC
    -small group size
    -unanimity

    conforming:
    -high external LOC
    -large group
    -ambiguous task

    resisting obedience:
    -high internal LOC
    -no authoritative figure
    -seeing the pain we cause
    -no legitimate authority

    obeying:
    -high external loc
    -legitimate authority
    -buffers
    -agentic state

    is this right?
    you could add: - graduated commitment to the obeying list
    - importance of the task (to the conforming lists)

    Hey guys,

    Do any of you know if General Adaptation is important because none of the revision notes I found has GAS and nor does the Psychology AS Complete Revision Companion book. So is it still part of the specification?

    I've just finished research into conformity and explanations of conformity

    I'm now on to obedience. But I'm not sure if I can just use Milgram as a study.... Are there other studies? I can't seem to find them

    Outline the biological approach to psychopathology (6 marks)

    The biological approach also known as the medical model to psychopathology suggests abnormality is caused by physical factors. Abnormality is caused by the malfunctioning of the brain and the systems in the body are used to explain abnormality.
    In biochemistry the dopa-mine hypothesis suggests that high levels of dopa-mine are related to the symptoms of schizophrenia.
    Abnormalities are sometimes a result of genetic inheritance. For example Torrey (2001) found that mothers of people who have schizophrenia had contacted a particular strain of influenza during pregnancy. This virus would enter the unborn child's brain leading to the symptoms of schizophrenia.
    Neurotransmitter serotonin is a biochemical which carries signals between the brain cells. High levels of serotonin have been associated with anxiety.
    The biological approach assumes abnormality can be treated like a physical condition and through focusing treatment on bodily functions.

    Would this answer be enough for 6 marks?

    Does anyone have a reasonably simple and standard list of studies/researchers that I can just learn? It feels like all my revision has consisted of is deciding which ones/how many to learn and I haven't got anywhere and do not know anything! Does anyone have any flashcards/notes on every researcher we need to know?

    I purchased the Loopa Revision guide with all of the sample answers and spent literally hours making flashcards of all of the researchers just for one topic, but I haven't even attempted to learn from them as it's too many!

    Also, does anyone know if the information from simplypsychology.org is enough to learn for the exam? If it would be enough then that's perfect and I'll just learn off of there but it doesn't seem like enough!

    Please help!

    I use simplypsychology along with my AS companion revision guide so that if there's any other studies you can use, you can just add them although it has all the information, i wouldn't suggest using it on its own
