I'm taking that on Wed. I was really pankicking that I didn't know enough... But I know pretty much all of what they were. yessss! Haha
Although... that's going to be far easier to write about those instead of the other ones I was looking at. Cheers
It's too soon...I spent all day doing Personality/Gender/Adoloscence though so I should be ok on those....animals I am totally stuffed for unless it's navigation, that's the bit I understood lol...relationships I think I've forgotten by now!!
I realise only 2 is relevent but...I'm stressing lol so I thought I'd post...
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.
For me its :
1. Circadian Rhythms/Sleep
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
There's plenty of posts/threads in there that will probably help everyone.
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
Also, as it's the last year of the syllabus, they could just chuck anything in, forgetting the pattern... :/
Bloody hell...I hate exams
I was wondering if anyone could help me with research into biological rhythms??
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?
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.
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?
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.
1. Explain Duck
2. Evaluate Duck. 2 Strengths 2 Limitations
4.Evaluate Lee. 2 Strenghts 2 Limitations
5.Evaluate them in General
