    What would you write for changes and implications for sperry and Savage and Runbagh? I hate these studies. Help would be appreciated!
    These are the worst two studies

    Is anyone else being really risky in terms of revising some stuff but not others? :erm: I'm worried.
    Yuup, guilty.. but it's the best thing to do as I just cannot get everything to stay in my head

    yes they usually give marks to any credit worthy material, even if they are two points about the sample. as long as you back it up with evidence

    Evaluation issues, changes and improvements: Loftus and palmer: ecological validity; make participants witness a real life robbery or bag-snatch (field experiment); improves EV BUT would raise ethical questions eg consent and protection

    Like always give an example. I'll give a model answer to a random question
    (Suggest one weakness of the research method as used in this study)(3 marks)
    One disadvantage of the research method used in Baron-Cohen's study is that it took place in a lab setting, which lacks ecological validity. In real life faces aren't still like the eye strips used in the study, they can move. This may help them interpret mental states better. Also, in real life deciding another persons mental state is not a multiple choice exercise.
    In bold is the evidence.

    eg for Milgram, quote the sample size of 40 males from Connecticut, and say how this would be improved by maybe adding 40 females to the sample too. this would improve generalizability etc blah blah blah

    guys. i'm confused. different sources are saying different things. Did sperry's study have a comparison group of normal participants or not?!

    Baron Cohen- issue: ethnocentrism; change: make it a cross cultural study where autistic people form other races and countries would be studied too; implication: increased generalisability BUT the eyes task would have to be made in different languages which can be time consuming and more costly than the original study

    my textbook doesn't say anything about a control group. and my textbook also says that the improvement to Sperrys study would be to include a control group in order to establish real differences of the effect of hemisphere deconnection

    Good question. Different sources say different things... My teacher said a change would be to add a control group...

    I also really (really badly!) need some help with the section c part, as the textbook I'm using/Holah website is really lacking on any information about the approaches at all, I have no way of finding out strengths and weaknesses etc, let alone whatever else it is I need to know. .
    The Holah website is really good for Section C, if you don't think what you need to know is on there then I'm not sure what you think you need to know. Are you doing OCR?

    i haven't revised for this exam since friday.. so i'm kinda worrying. although i did spend a week on core studies then 3 days on chem.. but bleh

    tomorrow i'm gonna focus on creating topic starters for section C, so that i can develop the answer from memory. Then will just go over 2 changes for the studies that I think will come up, and also focus on the figures of the results for these
