I'm doing AQA AS psychology (new spec) and I was wondering if we have to learn the parts of the brain and their functions for the exam? Or is this just for A level?

Thanks

Here you go.

A checklist of everything you need to know, in every topic. Use the tabs at the bottom to go to Biopsychology and you'll be able to see all the things you need to know for your exam.

I've checked the Syllabus and found this:
The biological approach: the influence of genes, biological structures and neurochemistry on behaviour, Genotype and Phenotype, genetic basis of behaviour, evolution and behaviour.

The division of the nervous system: central and peripheral (somatic and autonomic). The function of endocrine system: glands and hormones.
The fight or flight response and the role of adrenaline.

The structure and function of sensory, relay and motor neurons. The process of synaptic transmission including reference to neurotransmitters, excitation and inhibition.

My textbook:

Also copied the spec from the original AQA site:Image

So yeah to my knowledge and what the specification says, nothing about remembering each
individual part of the brain. I'm half positive my teacher once told me you need to understand each part, you don't need to remember it. Not sure if it helps but it's what the specification says afterall.

This is for AS by the way.
