    The research support for cognitive explanation of Schizophrenia is rubbish. But there is:

    Meyer-lindenberg (2002) described schizophrenic mothers and families that are rejecting, overprotecting and dominant as a main influence in schizophrenia

    Yellowlees (2002) have developed a machine that produces virtual hallucinations. The intervention is to show schizophrenics that their hallucinations aren't real
    However this has no research support as a successful treatment yet

    For smoking I only have one study

    Nicotine patches reduced relapse rates when accompanied by CBT to change their positive expectations of smoking

    Hope this helped

    Could someone give me a detailed answer

    Design a study to test whether there is a difference in the musical ability of left-handed students and right-handed students. You have access to a sixth form of 200 students.
    You should:
     identify the design that you would use
     explain an appropriate sampling method and justify your choice
     describe the procedure that you would use, including details of how you would
    assess musical ability
     write a suitable debrief for these participants.

    It'll be much appreciated thanks

    Directional (or one-tailed) hypotheses are when there is a certain effect going in a certain 'direction'. For example for a non-operationalized hypothesis,

    'The accuracy of memory recall worsens as age increases.'

    Non-directional (or two-tailed) hypotheses are when there is an effect present, but you are unsure or do not wish to state a 'direction'. For example for another non-operationalized hypothesis,

    'Age has an effect on the accuracy of memory recall.'

    'Worsens', 'decrease', 'lessens', 'increases', 'improves' etc are all words within a hypothesis that state a direction, therefore making them directional. Often the phrase 'has an effect' or 'changes' or something along those lines, indicates that there is an effect present, but the angle of which is unknown, making it non-directional
