The one i did in June 2009 had a dodgy dodgy question to do with Psychic Healing. The other one though was Outline and Evaluate Out-of-Body experiences and/or Near Death experiences (10).

It was split into 3 sections but i can't actually remember.. sorry.

Jan paper 2009 -

(a) a researcher wanted to test the ability of a known 'psychic healer'. ten voluteers suffering from chrionic back pain were selected through newspaper adverts. the volunteers were all given a questionnaire which rated their belief in psychic healing and another questionnaire which rated levels of pain. They were then randomly assigned to either a treatment group or a control group.
afterwards all the voluteers filled in the pain questionnaire again. the researcher found that there was no significant effect on pain relief as a reult of psychic healing.

(i) the researcher wanted to know whether there was a correlation between belief in psychic healing and improvement in pain ratings. what statistical test could the researcher use? justify your answer. (2mrks)

(ii) Outline one ethical issue in this study and suggest how the researcher could have dealt with it (3marks)

(iii) 'it is interesting why, even today in the modern age of science and technology, somepeople still believe in psychic healing'
Discuss factors underliying belief in psychic heAling. (5+5 mrks)

(b) outline and evaluate psychological research into belief in out-of-body experiences and/or near death experiences (4+6 marks)

Hope it helps

Can anybody explain to me the overview of controversies relating to ganzfield studies of ESP and studies of psychokinesis. What do you need to know? i don't understand it.

So for e.g. what do you write about in this sort of exam question : "discuss controversies relating to studies of psychokinesis/ESP????
