    this will sound really stupid, but do we get a question on each of our three topics, say: sleep, eating and relationships? if so, how long do we spend on each one?

    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
    Ahhh wicked, thank you so much Stressing out!

    I have one, but I'm not sure how good it is? I'm only aiming for a grade C, so yeah, i'll paste it here and you can pick and choose out what you like hope it helps in some way aha (I used the Collins 'eye' book and the Cardwell & Flanagan 'dog' book for my stuff..)



    Intro - Explain evolutionary psychology & go on to say about examples of group display as adaptive include... BREIFLY

    AO1 - Lynch mobs, Power-threat hypothesis (Blalock, 1967) explain how it's adaptive
    AO2 - - Backed up by Tolnay and Beck reasons for lynching, trying to vote etc.
    AO2 - - However, Clark (2006) found that afro-brazillian's held no threat to politics, but were still lynched

    AO1 - Social transitions and need for conformity (Patterson, 1999)
    AO2 - - Backed up by Boyd and Richerson (1990) discovering groups who co-operated flourish

    AO2 - Alt approach - Deindividuation, Mullen (1986) saying that lynch mobs that had larger crowds had more violent killings, he put this down to deindividuation.
    AO3 - - Used secondary content analysis, paper's could be biased or lie to sell stories
    AO2 - - Rothenberg (1998) points out that most lynchings were during the day, and that some had very few members

    AO1 - Religious displays - cooperative gains, Irons (2001) points out trouble for species is how to gain a cooperative feel, he states using painful rtuals helps this, and having a large group means better survival
    AO1 - This was extended into the costly signalling theory by Zahavi (1975), who states these rituals are to deter free riders

    AO2 - - Ruffle & Sosis (2005) Uses isreali jews as an example to back up this point, the men had greater cooperative bonds than the women, Ruffle and Sosis put this down to the fact that synagogoue attendance was needed for males, and they also had to pray in the scorching heat. These provided a sense of group.
    AO2 - - Chen (2003) found that during the indonesian financial crisis, families donated more of their money and time to the muslim religions. This suggests that as the rewards are greater, so are the costs.

    Synoptic points - There is a dark side to the evolutionary approach, in that the stonger intra-group solidarity can result in more inter group conflict. This is backed up by countless religous wars, and crusades etc.

    most of that sounds like alien to me. very worried now.
    Here's all I have:

    1) Research into infants
    - 16 Hours sleep
    - Due to restoration theory
    - Animal studies using the 'flowerpot technique'
    (A02) animal ethics
    (A02) can't generalise to young infants

    2) Research into children
    - 12 hours sleep + parasomnias E.G. sleep walking
    - Due to less developed GABA neurotransmitter
    (A02) Reductionist
    (A02) Objective

    3) Research into adolescents
    - 9-10 hours, phase advance
    - Crowely phase advance hypothesis due to hormone changes
    (A02) Deterministic
    (A02) Individual Differences

    4) Research into adults
    - Phase advance
    (A02) Borbely et al - 60% older people take naps = confounding variables
    (A02) Dement - Sample bias due to busy middle aged people

    5) Obayan's meta analysis
    - Total sleep time decreased, deep NREM decreased, males sleep more than females.
    (A02) reliable - lots of date
    (A02) External validity
    (A02) Individual differences - Webb found same date with same participants on different nights, but not across participants.
    (A02) Cultural differences

    That's all I have on the topic and I've taken stuff from other areas.

    all 4 are fine to mention though you wouldnt necessarily need all 4, as most marks would be ao2/3... so even if you just mentioned some of that youd be fine

    30mins on each = 1hr 30.
