    can anyone tell me all the core practicals that need to be learnt for this exam?

    they're further back in the thread, there's habituation with worms/snails, spirometer and respirometer. i think that's it.

    is the pre-release just like a comprehension ? it seems that from the questions we have been shown that you can sort of just look in the pre-release for the answers rather than having to add any excessive scientific knowledge? would you say this is true ?

    with the specimen paper the pre release seemed a little pointless since the questions were actually about the course. i think it's more for real life examples of what we've learnt, you may get a few marks for comprehension, but it won't all be like that.

    Cheerz,

    thanks so much for this!

    and not to sound pushy or anything but do u happen to know how to answer this:

    1. describe the symptoms of parkinson's disease and Explain how the "chaotic activity" in the subthalamic nucleus of patients with parkinson's leads to such symptoms?

    seems like there's more ques on the "dancing worms" part of the article than "stressed out" and "pain and gender"... hmm

    Can be used to switch on neurons which control aggression;
    Can be used to switch off neurons for conscious thought, which helps to interrogate prisoners of war and make them speak the truth about enemy secrets;
    the pain thing, etc!
