    guys would this be included as a disadvantage for the physiological approach?

    studies often rely on self-report or observation to gather qualitative data to provide detailed explanations as to why a behaviour occurs. these methods include bias etc etc etc...
    Not sure, here's two anyway
    -lab experiments, lack ecological validity
    -Requires of expensive equipment and trained researchers, limits sample size, practically difficult

    Can someone describe the sample of the sperry-split brain study please. All i have is that it consists of 11 participants that have had their corpus collosum severed due to epileptic seizures. What more detail do i need for an 8/4 marker or so?
    (i cant seem to find more details about the sample anywhere)

    ahh i hate that! can you go over it a bit? :L
    There were 3 stages of screening. The first stage consisted of psychometric tests such as clinical tests to ensure that all participants would be fit enough to participate and that none of them would be capable of causing harm to each other.
    The second stage was a full weekend test carried out by independent clinical psychologists.
    The third stage included police checks and character references were written up.

    Hope I included everything

    yep, so the screening phase consisted of 3 phases:

    Phase 1 consisted of a series of psychometric tests to measure the participants social variables (modern racism, authoritarianism) and clincal variables (anxiety, depression etc). This was done to identify individuals that may pose a risk to others or vulnerable themselves. Only those that scored low in these tests were able to proceed to the next phase

    Phase 2 involved a full weekend assessment of the participants carried out by a group of clinical psychologists

    Phase 3 - character/medical references were obtained and police checks were conducted on all participants

    The initial pool of 332 applicants was reduced to 27 individuals. The final 15 participants were selected to ensure diversity of age, ethnicity and social background

    Hope that helps!

    ahh thank you! i usually get confused about what variables the psychometric tests analysed.. if i remember racism and depression then hopefully i can conclude that its clinical and social variables!
