    If you're worrying about the evolutionary explanation for anorexia like t am don't worry too much. Yes I would hate for it to come up, but I think it's less likely. My teacher has not said that it could come up by itself. I was just asking in case. Also, I had a look at the loopa website, and it's the third one, but it says "biological explanations" will come up. So it would including evolutionary and neural. He did t specify that just evolutionary could come up.

    Think about it, if your teacher did not have that much info on it or even my teacher, the. It's because this explanation just does not have enough!

    I mean I have a teacher who is excellent and she provides us with all research evidence and tells us how much of each we should aim to explain. She didn't give us any research on this and plus one of my evaluation points that she provided us with states that there is no direct scientific evidence to support the study and therefore must rely on a great deal of speculation.
    Sorry meant that it did NOT specify on the website that evolutionary would come up by itself

    I think if we were asked about evolutionary explanations of ED it wouldn't be a full mark question on its own; at worst it would be part of a question saying "explain one neural and one evolutionary biological explanation of eating disorders".

    I highly doubt it'd be asked on its own.

    If that happens then I'm okay with that because I'm confident on neural and know one of the explanations of evolutionary really well. It's just that the adaption to flee famine hypothesis is a bit confusing. Do you have research studies for evolutionary??

    Guys just want to check a few things.

    1. If it asks to outline and evaluate one pyscho explanation of AN, can I use culture and media as one?

    2. If its not a biological explanation, and i want to use reductionism, can I just replace the word with limited?

    yeah there's been some debate over this in the thread, basically examiners have put in their reports that candidates keep using the term reductionist too broadly, and really reductionist is only suitable when using the biological approach, and for any other approach the appropriate term is 'limited'..

    hope this helps

    AQA have said this themselves that reductionist can only be used for bio they been stressing that students keep using it incorrectly, regardless if your teacher marks it put limited youll still get the marks,
