    Unlucky :/ - I've had a pretty intense week though. Are all these questions in the exam 25 markers or are they split up anywhere? I'm praying they're all 25 markers...

    ALSO. I have hardly anything for Sleepwalking/Narcolepsy & I can just imagine getting a question on that -.- Anyone got anything? D:
    Ok here's what I have for Sleep walking AO2:
    Gunn and Gunn: behaviours like lining up shoes on the window sill were seen, but mainly sleep walkers carry out normal routine activities

    Soldatos and Kale: said that sleep walkers have a prior pathology of depression and trauma

    Hubin et al: studied twins, found concordance rate to be DZ: 0.37, MZ: 0.55 when children, but changed to DZ: 0.05, MZ: 0.37 when adults

    can't remember anything else off the top of my head.. wow this is great

    Narcolepsy:

    I hated Narcolepsy. I don't know anything for it off the top of my head... -_-" sorry...
    OH. something about Dogs. yes.
    Ninashi and Mignot: found dogs inherited a faulty gene which is why they have narcolepsy, but this doesn't apply to humans as Mignot et al found because out of 16 twins, only 4 pairs had narcolepsy

    something to do with brain trauma and brain damage... and something to do with orexin or Hcrt.

    if you're using a research to support a theory and you structure the point like this:

    in support of ................... theory ......... Et Al found that ................................ ................................ ................................ ....................... . this supports the ............................ theory as it suggests ................................ ................... .

    is that 2 AO2 marks? or less/more? wanted to know because i've been revising on the basis i need eight AO2 points in a essay with each point carrying 2 marks. thanks

    Most likely at least one will be split up.

    yeah. i was thinking for a 25 marker i'd do nine points for AO1, three studies AO2, one issue/debate, one alternative approach AO2, one/two methodological point AO3.

    thats apparently the structure that examiners want. our teacher said they was told that when they went to a AQA seminar.

    Can Someone please give me some reminders of the maintenance of relationship theories (and formation).
    There are 2 maintenance of relationships theories that I know of which are;

    Social Exchange Theory:
    This is based on the profit/loss obtained in the relationship which can include such things as financial stability, sex etc. For the relationship to be succesful our percieved profits must be higher than our loss.
    This can explain why women may stay in abusive relationships as them leaving may have a greater loss e.g. no home.
    However this only really applies to western cultures as we are individualist and focus on the gains we can make from give and take e.g. like a stock market.
    The 2nd part to this theory is our Comparison Level this is our expectancy level of what we should gain from the relationship that we determine from our past experiences, if we gain less than our CL level we may leave the relationship and look to see if there is a better 'deal' elsewhere.
    Although this doesn't explain why people leave relationships when nothing else is available e.g. they stay single.

    Equity Theory:
    This theory is based on the fairness of the relationship and the equality of the profit/loss. A supporting study for this is were they found couples were happiest when there was equality rather than one person getting all the benefits.
    However what we consider to be fair is 'subjective' and can be linked with our CL level perhaps from the Social exchange theory?
    Another study considered that relationships aren't purely economic in that with human relationships we repsond to our partners desires and they respond to ours.
    Gender differences in that men see there career as more important if they earn more money where as if the women earns more they rate there jobs as equal, so women seem to expect less from the relationship.

    Behaviourist approach maybe due to need for rewards in profit?
    Not sure if you can inlcude a nature v nurture debate in there anywhere as well.

    That was actually quite entertaining to read "something about dogs. yes." heh. Could we get a 25 marker on sleepwalking/narcolepsy? Or a smaller question?

    i doubt it. there's already been a question on sleep disorders for 25 marks. well if it comes up i'm doomed because i'm not revising it.
