    oh yeh i always forget practical implications are IDA, woops

    thanks v much +1 rep

    you can mention how it assumes that aggression is evolutionary and not genetic etc....

    but if it states group displays of aggression are evolutionary, then its therefore also genetic? since the whole point of evolution is to pass down successful genes & reproductive fitness etc
    Erm, I was thinking more, that it may be possible that some people are more aggressive than others due to genetics (faulty genes) compared to evolutionary

    I think a better phrase would be

    ' It assumes that it is adaptive, - however it is possible they a genetic predisposition plays a role - eveidence for this comes from the study carried out by________.)

    ahh i get what you mean but even with faulty genes it's still got to be passed down, and if the faulty gene wasn't adaptive in some sense then it wouldn't be passed through generations.
    but i see what you mean, but couldn't you say that this faulty gene passed down creates a biological predisposition rather than determining aggression, since one flaw of the evolutionary explanation is that it cannot account of individual differences, such as levels of aggression. This therefore means that it's likely that the situational factors combined with this gene fault that trigger the different levels of aggression that are displayed

    (thought im starting to feel we're going a bit off topic from group displays haha

    Sleep - Discuss the role of endogenous pacemakers in the control of one or more biological rhythms.

    Relationships - Describe and evaluate two or more theories of the formation of romantic relationships.

    Gender - Discuss Kohlberg’s theory of gender development.

    Well my understanding is that in our EEA (environment of evolutionary adaptation), the early humans had to constantly move around places due to lack of secure food and even predation risks. To adapt to this constant fight for survival, humans have supposadly created a mechanism: AN (anorexia nervosa), to deal with this. Kind of like to famine hypothesis.

    This is how I personally see it, if its wrong then

    Hmmmm quick question, if you were asked a question on Neural and Hormonal explanations of aggression..
    Do you think its possible they would ask you to outline and evaluate just neural e.g. serotonin and dopamine stuff and evaluate that
    or just to outline hormonal mechanism for the 25 marker?

    Or would it be under something like outline and evaluate one or more biological explanations of aggression?

    They will only ask
    neural AND hormonal for a 25 mark
    but if it was a 5 or 6 mark, i think they might be able to specify, but i doubt it

    It's 12 A02 marks, and 4, A03 I think, though if you put more methodological marks than 4 they can carry over to A02
