    Kohlburgs theory came up , so i doubt it that it will come up again, my predictions are cross cultural studies, evolutionary, gender schema
    did the question actually say 'kohlburg's theory'. didn't think they would be that specific.

    In neural explanantions for anorexia, specifically serotonin, I'm a bit confused, does it say that high serotonin causes anxiety? (which I wouldn't have thought would be the case) or is it high serotonin activity, like fluctuating levels causing anxiety? My books worded it really weirdly aha

    Does anyone have any guesses for what might come up for cognitive development? If they throw another theory of mind question at us I'm gonna shoot someone in the eye.

    Agree with this.


    I'm learning genetic factors as it's only come up as a 4-marker in June 10.


    Lifespan was also only a 4-marker in June 10. Also, as far as I'm aware infradian rhythms haven't come up yet but I'm not sure.

    Apart from that I'm doing the same.
    can they really ask anything more than 4 marks for lifespan changes?

    I think the technically can, it's just less likely. Our college gave us this to do:

    Critically consider how psychological research has contributed to our understanding of how sleep patterns change across a person’s lifetime. (25 marks)

    Awful!!

    I'd go through the different changes in lifespan and evaluate the studies for each one. There's also there's:
    Obayan et al meta analysis
    Borbely et al found that people take naps affecting results
    Dement who said that samples are biased to to busy middle aged people not taking part in research.

    I'd really struggle if that came up and I doubt it will.

    Don't be! I think it's unlikely to come up. If you like, have a look at some of the notes posted on the first page of this thread. There might be some more studies in there.

    i learnt it just as people with anorexia seem to have underactive serotonin pathways/reduced amount of receptors for serotonin... so it is low levels of it that is apparently leading to the anorexia.

    remember to point out for evaluation though, that we cannot be sure whether the abnormality caused anorexia or whether anorexia itself caused the abnormality as anorexia disrupts hormone balance.

    hopefully that helps you
