    You just need to write about some case studies, like Clive Wearing and H.M.
    Clive Wearing had retrograde and anterograde amnesia and H.M had anterograde amnesia.
    I have Clive Wearing but not H.M. There are still other findings to remember :/ like my section for Alzheimers is based around what causes it I.e genetics or brain abnormalities. And there's findings that need to be included there.

    I am always reluctant to blame bad results on bad teachers because its such a cliche, but given that my friend in the class got A's and B's in everything else and I got B's and C's in maths and physics and that my teacher missed three topics. Then yes... Im thinking the teaching may have been a bit ropey

    How come. I've suddenly thought of an essay plan. Basicallly define science. Talk about what approaches follow science and what doesn't. Talk about kuhn saying psychology doesn't have a common paradigm like biology or physics do. So its a pre science. Tap about how science is about being nomothetic but since psychology measures intangible things such as memory or stress there are diff ways of meaauring . No totally valid method unlike volts or litres. Then say science brings knowledge which psychology has done. And i conclude that's its probably scientific because wehave shifted towards cognitive which uses lab and looks at biology abit. Also it could be seen as a social science

    Sory for typos . Im on my touch phone

    Ohhhhhhhh ok cool. And haha good structure tbh!! Mine is basically :define a science and Alport's criteria, Kuhn's idea of a science. Then Eysenck saying it is a science due to the lab method. Objectivity and how it is sometimes and isn't sometimes achieved. Hilborn's chaos theory regarding objectivity. Kuhn's paradigm approach, Palermo's criticism of it. Falsifiability and Freud as an example of bad science but Broadbent's filter theory of attention being falsifiable. Social constructionist and humanistic psychologists saying it isn't a science and doesn't need to be. Then Silfe and Williams talking about how regarding it as a science results in greater funding :/


    Also sorry for typos cos I'm using this itouch haha

    this is probably quite unlikely but is anyone else doing physics ph5 on tuesday (technically tomorrow)? If so, are you also feeling sorry for yourself trying to memorise essays and doing past papers and failing at both?

    Just some thigns yo ucan talk about other than flashbulbs and repression in the emotions essay:

    Mood congruency effect

    The emotional state someone is in may help them retrieve memories that has similar emotional content. Low/bad mood may be able to remember more negative memories.

    Bower - participants kept a diary for a week and record pleasant/unpleasant events. The participants were then hypnotised and their mood was suggested to them, those in a happy mood tended to remember pleasant events, and those in a sad mood tended to retrieve unpleasant ones.

    Sometimes when we are in a bad mood we may actually intentionally try thinking of happy memories to cheer ourselves up – leading to retrieval of mood-incongruent memories as Parrott and Sabini found in several naturalistic studies.

    Libet carried out a study of voluntary action which suggested that unconcious processes in the brain initiated actions participants thought they had chosen to do, suggesting free will does not really exist.

    You can see more about his study here
