    Evolutionary Explanations of Food Preference is the only thing that hasn't come up.. and I'm thinking they might ask Explanations of an eating disorder too, but a specific one as the last time that came up it wasn't specific at all.. who knows though!
    I agree with you there, though I hate evolutionary explanations of eating. I hardly have any A02 :/

    thats exactly how i feel! i dont have hardly anything to evaluate it with!!

    what would we actually need to talk about? how digestive tract has changed etc, our senses and how we became meat eaters?!

    the treatments of the sleep disorder can be used to evaluate the disorder/explanation, read that on a past paper mark scheme

    I don't mind it really.. but I'm same only have 3 A02 point so I have 3 different theories and then evaluate all of them if it's a 25 marker! Wouldn't mind a question on eating disorders though.. :rolleyes:

    sleep apnoea would probably be an alright one to evaluate, for the obstructive sleep apnoea you can mention that weightloss is very good at reducing symptoms (as its correlated with obesity). and also sugery can be used to widen the upper airways which tends to be successful

    for central sleep apnoea treatment is usually based on treating the underlying cerebrovascula side of it, which then helps reduce the symptoms!

    for narcolepsy, for evaluation mention that they have found what seems to be the cause- a lack of the neurochemical orexin (or a lack of its receptors) yet they still do not have a drug/cure available despite this which is a weakness.

    but narcolepsy is good to evaluate in general anyway-by saying how it does seem likely that REM is invading wakefulness-because in REM our muscles lose tone so this would explain cataplexy and sleep paralysis etc.

    to evaluate sleepwalking based on the psychodynamic suggestions-you could argue the theory does not explain the tasks that people do whilst sleepwalking, and that the approach is as usual mainly based on case studies and so unable to be generalised.

    insomnia would be easier as you can evaluate it by saying that sleeping pills may seem helpful but when the person stops taking them their sleep is actually much worst.

    you can also use gregory et al study to evaluate insomnia, as it highlights the link between early anxiety and later insomnia.

    there is probably other stuff aswell but that is just off the top of my head!!hope that helps if you need an extras let me know

    heyy yeah im going it now and I can't seem to find a lot :\ but you can evaluate it that there are cultural differences in food preferences, there has also been research to show that early humans may have been vegetarians but then other evidence has shown this is not the case. Also using animals in studies can be evaluated I Really do think this is gnna be the 25 marker :\

    you can say that fossil evidence shows that changes to our digestive tract have happened that allowed us to switch to meat eaters.

    and also that evidence shows that our mollars have got smaller through evolution which would have helped us chew food better/eat more meat!
