    could someone briefly describe the procedure for Dement and kleitman please?? what I have is too long :/ and the research method was self report right??
    Participants were asked not to consume caffeine or alcohol during the day preceding the experiment. They arrived at the sleep lab in time for their normal bed time. Electrodes were placed on the scalp to measure brain activity and near the eyes to measure eye movement. The P's then went to a dark quiet room to go to sleep. At various times during the night the P was awoken by a doorbell, and asked to recall their dream if they had been dreaming, and they were also asked about the length of their dream. They spoke into a tape recorder.

    it was lab experiment, using self-report to collect data.

    procedure:
    participants asked to astain from alcohol/caffeine on day of experiment
    asked to report to the lab around their usual bedtimes
    electrodes attached to their scalp (EEG) and around their eyes (EOG)
    they were then awoken randomly either during REM sleep or NREM sleep, 5 mins into REM sleep or 15 mins into REM sleep
    they were then asked to report into a recording device of... a: whether they could recall a dream or not. b: whether they believe they had been sleeping for 5 or 15 minutes. c: the content of the dream

    a relates to hypothesis 1
    b to hypothesis 2
    and c to hypothesis 3

    Quantitative data included daily psychometric tests to measure social variables, organisational variables and clinical variables additionally a physiological test for stress levels was administered daily by taking saliva swabs from each P.

    i do,

    Hypothesis 1:
     for all participants, there was a high incidence of recall of dreaming during REM periods, and a low incidence of recall during NREM periods
     supports hypothesis 1
    Hypothesis 2:
     participants were awoken after 5 or 15 minutes of REM activity and were asked how long they had been dreaming
     there were more correct answers than wrong answers
     supports hypothesis 2
    Hypothesis 3:
     3 vertical eye movements: looking up a cliff, looking up and down a ladder, looking up to a basketball net
     1 horizontal eye movement: watching two people throw tomatoes at each other
     Both vertical and horizontal eye movements: looking at something up close, e.g. talking to people
     Little or no movement: looking at something in the distance or at a fixed point


    basically, use this resource i created! way easier.

    Ommmmgg that is exactly kind of what I said before but I thought most of it was qualitative data rather than quantitative and I was thinking maybe the psychometric tests were quantitative data but thank you now it's clear to me!! <3

    When it asks for describe a method os the study do we have to just describe whether it is a case study, lab experiment etc. or do we have to say what exactly happened in the study like the procedure?
    Thanks in advance

    So if people reckon it's the Physiological approach that'll come up, what do you think the b) question will be?

    describe how the physiological approach could explain.....

    structural changes in the brain
    dreaming
    difficulties experienced by those with split brains


    have all come up - which covers all the studies that have been in the approach. Not sure how to prepare for question b now.

    Oh that's a good combination, the psychodynamic perspective believes that all behaviour derives from inner conflicts of the mind so you could say in Piliavin when the victim is on the floor, people are in a conflict with themselves on whether to help the victim or just to walk by. Also in Piliavin there is the 'Cost of helping', 'Cost of not helping', 'Rewards of helping' and 'Rewards if not helping'- ie the Cost-Reward Model. In terms of the psychodynamic approach you could say that the cost-reward model intertwines with the psychodynamic idea of ID, EGO and SUPEREGO the three parts of our mind that are always in conflict and tries to balance our conscience.
    The part in bold - That's related to social... I'm pretty sure anyway. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP. I cannot express how much I am grateful. Thank you!!!!

    Piliavin isn't a psychodynamic study it's a behaviourist study. All of the social approach studies (piliavin, reicher and haslam and milgram) are behaviourist as well as savage rumbaugh, bandura and griffiths.

    Thigpen and Cleckley, Freud and possibly rosenhan are psychodynamic
    Humm. I've not even learnt Piliavin as a behaviourist study? What could you write for that?

    In my book it mentions Piliavin as part of psychodynamic... I just have a feeling it will be sods law and it will come up tomorrow.
