Can you use those? I thought they were maintanace?
Although... that's going to be far easier to write about those instead of the other ones I was looking at. Cheers

Psychology exams are so bad - it's just one big memory test! If you can remember a lot of studies/names and have decent english skills then it's a B+. I got an A last year and I put it down to the fact that I basically memorised most of my notes.

The first two ARE for maintenence o-o Lee and Duck are the two dissolution ones.

I'm doing the latter two. For Relationships I've predicted that Explanations of Love will come up, and that formation/maintenence of relationships wont, with understudied relationships being unlikely.

For Bio-rhythms, Functions of sleep and theories of dreaming are the two I've predicted to come up, with research in to biological rhythms/disrupting them being unlikely to come up.

I'm also doing the one on personality development, where I think gender development will come up.

I started predicting what will come up as well (based on past papers). I have a feeling models of bystander behaviour/human altruism and explanations of love. For determinants of animal behaviour i'm hoping intelligence in non-human animals or social learning in non-human animals will come up - unlikely i think though? I'm not doing dreams and sleep; the module was rushed through during the last few weeks before xmas. It just went over all our heads!

I really don't want formation/maintenence to come up.
For me its :

1. Circadian Rhythms/Sleep
2. Aggression/Altruism
3. Love/Breakdown

So i've got 6 that I wouldnt mind

I'll check this later guys, I've gotta revise nature of dreaming and understudied relationships tonight

THEN I AM DONE WITH PSYCH REVISION, FINALLYYYYY

I was wondering if anyone could help me with research into biological rhythms? I know loads for Circadian like Siffre,Aschoff and Wever,Folkard etc. But my notes on ultradian don't have anything about actual studies.My teacher said to use studies from the rest of the module, but I'm not sure which and how to make them relevant?

I think the relationships question will either be psychological explanations of love, breakdown or cultural differences
I hope the dreams question is on endogenous pacemakers and exogenous zeitgebers
And for evolutionary psychology I hope the Q is on evolution of intelligence or sexual selection
I hate this exam so much

Is anybody doing Brain & Behaviour? If so...predictions as to which question will come up...


Also, as it's the last year of the syllabus, they could just chuck anything in, forgetting the pattern... :/
Bloody hell...I hate exams :stomp:

That question came up on the June 08 exam didn't it? I wouldn't worry about it if I were you...

We were told not to really focus on ultradian rhythms since there isn't a lot of information on it. I've only learnt circadian and infradian rhythms, but for ultradian it's about the different stages of sleep- as far as i can remember there isn't any research studies.

Ok thanks,maybe I will try and just stick with them two. I know it's unlikely to come up but want to be prepared just in case,especially becuase its the last year who knows what they might throw in

Just been revising guise.

found a really nice way to remember one particular study

Nature of dreams :

Bokert (of water) deprived participants of water and found that they dreamt of thirst and craving of water.

A02: Demand characteristics?
A02: Suggests a function and meaning of dreams! Linked with problem solving? - Cartwright

I've just been going back over my notes on dissolution and have got myself all confused Basically I've got notes on reasons for breakdown according to Duck which are:lack of skills,lack of stimulation and maintenance difficulties. Then I've got Duck's model of dissolution and a small bit about Lee's model of dissolution. So I was looking at all the past questions and one is outline and evaluate two explanations relating to the breakdown of relationships. So what do I include?

I would do it like this:

1. Duck's reasons for breakdown
2. Duck's model of the process of breakdown
And then use Lee's model as an alternative explanation to evaluate Duck's model.

Do they ever ask questions on just Human altruism? Or is it always human altruism/bystander behaviour. Because I know bystander behaviour well, but not so much altruism.
