    • The emergence of cognitive neuroscience
    • The divisions of the nervous system: central and peripheral (somatic and autonomic)
    • The structure and function of sensory, relay and motor neurons.
    • The function of the endocrine system: glands and hormones.
    • The fight or flight response including the role of adrenaline.
    • Definitions of abnormality (learn them all)
    • The behavioural, emotional and cognitive characteristics of phobias, depression and OCD
    • The behavioural to explaining phobias (two process model)
    • The cognitive approach to explaining depression (Beck’s negative triad + Ellis ABC Model)

    Oh, Thankyou very much!
    I'm hoping for as little as possible on biopsyhology as that's is my weakest area

    Thankyou

    I was so happy when definitions of abnormality came up. I was hoping it would come up and it did.
    What did u write for the flooding and systematic desensitisation questions????

    SD is constituted gradually (least feared to most feared), deep muscle relaxation techniques taught to cope with stress & flooding involves immediate contact with phobic situation + anxiety controlling techniques are also taught

    I put A because I thought cognitive neuroscience was about looking at biological structures that underpin the cognitive processes?¿

    Hey guys, grade boundaries?? and what did you put for 12 marker of SLT, what if I said when his sister did the phone thing it's imitation vicarious reinforcement then explained via mediational processes role models etc and for the pen thing I also said it was vicarious then also said it was negative reinforcement!! how many AO1 marks would I lose!

    I feel like the grade boundaries will be quite high for this paper because so many people have said it was good. They're really good AO1 points, I did the same! I also gave a brief sentence about what social learning theory is (i.e how it only takes place in social contexts and it's about one person wanting to be like another). I wrote about identification too though and that because the two people are siblings, then it's likely they share similar physical characteristics which increases the likelihood of social learning theory taking place. Also how John is the live model providing examples of the behaviour to be learned in this situation but there can also be symbolic models such as someone portrayed in the media

    Because I contradicted myself in the AO1 by saying the pen thing was both negative reinforcement and vicarious how many marks would I lose also I talked bout characteristics but said model as olders so higher in social status! don't know what I was thinking and what did you write for the flight or fight I talked only bout adrenaline and the medulla and the changes like heart rate etc finally what was the answer to the follow up study improving previous one question?

    Hi there,
    Hope you found that exam okay, I'm pretty happy with the majority.

    Skinners research I wrote that the rat was in a cage where it was given electric shocks. If the rat pushed the leaver then it would avoid the shocks and be rewarded food. I then went on to say how it was positively reinforced ( food) negitively reinforced ( press lever to avoid shocks ) and punished ( shocks)

    For SLT -
    A01
    I explained bandura study with bo bo doll, then gave definitions of identification and modelling. Then I gave definitions and linked to the stem for imitation and vicarious reinforcement

    A03
    fox and bailenson - models either exercising or loitering, identification support
    Akers - criminals have violent role models
    Siegel and McCormick - criticised : deviant attitudes before peer contact


    Can't guarentee I'm right but that's what I put

    Me too !!!
    Was that the 2 marks each ??

    I put
    SD - gradual exposure, fear hierarchy and relaxation techniques. For example - drawing a spider then eventually holding one

    F - immediate exposure. Can be invivo or in vitro. Eg - being put Ina. Room with spiders

    No what you wrote for the SLT question is fine!! Vicarious reinforcement is simply the individual observing the consequence of a particular behaviour (hence the term vicarious). I'd say you'd get 4 or 5 for AO1 but only because you didn't include identification or modelling.

    I'm the same for the fight or flight question, I wrote about the whole process rather than stating what it was actually for

    I said that the follow up study was an improvement because it used participants that are the same age so overall health and maturity levels etc may be similar, then how a stratified sample is used which is useful because there are people in schools with different levels of intelligence (so you could choose the top 20, middle them lowest 20 etc), and then how a questionnaire using closed questions was used in the original study and how social desirability bias may play a factor and then contrasted that to actually testing cognitive abilities in the follow up study

    I put for that one that there may be a physical issue such as hearing impairment or vision impairment which may effect the results, no clue if thats right

    That's fine but you would need to be specific to get the full 2 marks. You could say that visual impairments would mean participants find it harder to spot the difference and thus take longer which will have an impact on the results (such as increasing the mean) and therefore can't be generalised to the whole population
