also for 16 marker, you could also talk about Broca and Wernicke, right?
Yes it said localisation or lateralisation. I wrote about localisation too not lateralisation aka Sperry

Isnt fMRI less generic tho? It allows you to see the location of the brain that's stimulated (it has high spatial resolution. It just has low temporal resolution. Plus it can be used while the person is doing an activity.

Hi i kind missed out the wudt question it was 8 marks is that really really bad?? I just couldnt do it , coz i didnt over that
(Original post by studyr)
APPROACHES
1. B (can't remember for sure )
2. D (can't remember for sure)
3. Role of unconscious mind - i said biological drive and instincts can be accessed through dreams (not sure)
4. Tiger cleaning spray & rugby player stem and mediational processes = attention, retention, motor reproduction & motivation
5. Rugby player & male viewers = identification
6. 4568-2522/2522 x 100 to 2 significant figures is 86%
7. How to make women buy Tiger spray = Women athlete in the advert that women identify with.
8. Wundt's role in emergence of psychology as a science = 8 Mark
AO1 = first lab study, introspection & structuralism, metronome and standardised procedure.
AO3 = some aspects scientific as standardised procedure, some aspects not scientific because self-reporting so subjective.

BIOPSYCHOLOGY
1. fMRI
2. B
3. C
4. A
4. Glands & hormones but don't include adrenal gland or adrenaline = thyroxine and thyroid gland.
5. ESSAY with stem about Kieron (speech & lang is left) & Sam (no, silly! all parts of the brain work together -__- ) QS - Hemispheric Lateralisation and/or Localisation.
AO1 = Sperry split brain and the description task with the left and right visual field, definition of hemispheric laterlalisation. Localisation could also be used but i used HS more but did use the holism aspect of it to contradict what Sam said.
AO3 = sperry's standardised procedure, research support, can't generalise because epileptic patients and sample small. I also used law of equipotentiality with stroke victims to contradict Sam.

RESEARCH METHODS (HELL)
1. consistency
2. B
3.
4. non directional the difference also not done before idk etc....
5. write the hypothesis include DV and IV!

CAN'T REMEMBER ORDER
  • How is the validity affected by the researcher knowing which participants are in which group and how to fix this? = investigator effect and to fix double-blind or change the researcher for that step.
  • strength of using matched pairs instead of repeated measures = participants matched on a variable thats relevant to study so high validity
  • Sign test s value = 3
  • N = 8 and the critical value was 0 so not significant
  • Concurrent validity = score compared to a pre-existing test
  • Stat Test = Mann Whitney as ordinal, non-parametric, and unrelated design also testing difference between happiness between condition A and B.
  • Design = had to include aim, IV, DV, CVs, EV = noise ? and how to prevent, I said bar chart with separate keys because discrete data ... i wasn't sure.

Hope it went well for everyone !

For the 16 marker, I didn't mention research apart from for AO3! I wrote about localisation only - Broca and Wernicke's area, plus the four lobes.

Will I drop a lot of marks for not mentioning research?

I put unrelated t test too but I have no idea
(Original post by Krisshears)
Did any other human on this planet put unrelated t test for the stats? It said score on a happiness questionnaire rather than a happiness rating, and as it’s a test score I thought it would be interval considering there are equal intervals? It’s probably wrong but thought I’d put it out there.
