Association area is anything outside its primary area within a lobe. These are involved in integrating information between motor and sensory areas and higher-order mental processes such as decision-making, planning, etc.
i.e. Frontal Lobe; Primary Area: Primary Motor Cortex - its association area is anything outside the primary motor cortex within the frontal lobe :)

Hope that makes sense!

Great explanation! Thanks heaps  :) :) :)

This surgery was most effective in reducing her epileptic seizures because
A. an implanted pulse generator (IPG) causes interference with neural activity.
B. the corpus callosum was severed, eliminating all communication between the two hemispheres.
C. the corpus callosum was severed, preventing communication at the higher cortical levels.
D.the two hemispheres were separated at the subcortical level.

Can anyone explain please why the answer is D? I thought it was C but the answer says otherwise. Thanks in advance :)

Thankyou! :) Yeah I thought there was a chance it was a typo in the solutions since this isn't a vcaa exam

Hello :)

I read that Broca's area is 'involved in analysing the grammatical structure of a sentence'.
What exactly is meant by this?

I'm kind of confused because can't people with damage to Broca's area (Broca's aphasia) still understand speech (and doesn't this involve understanding the grammatical structure as well?)

Thanks :)

Hello :)

Does anyone know any criticisms/limitations for Sperry's split brain experiment?
I thought maybe convienence sampling was a limitation, but other than that I'm stuck :P

Also, does each primary auditory cortex receive auditory information from BOTH ears or only one ear (e.g. Does the left auditory receive information from the right ear only or from both ears?)

Thanks :)

Can people with broca's aphasia still write fluently?

Can some one help me with this question?

"Half of the sample does the Muller-Lyer illusion with the arrows, then they do the "square ends" version of the illusion. The other group do the conditions in the other order. What is the name of this process? Why is it implemented?

Thanks  :)
Don't worry about scores that you can't change  because there are so many more productive things you could do

If I am understanding the question correctly, it is referring to a research methods concept known as "counterbalancing". This involves systematically changing the order of tasks for participants in a 'balanced' way to counter the unwanted effects on performance of any one order.

In the case of this experiment, half of the participants are exposed to version A of the illusion first and then version B second, and vice versa for the second group. By doing so, it is recognised that an order effect could potentially be confounding on the results and by using counterbalancing, you effectively eliminate such an extraneous variable. If this is unclear, let me know and I'll try to rephrase it for you.

Hello :)

Would you consider, for example, knowing the definition of 'hypothesis' as a semantic memory?
I'm a little confused because my teacher's notes say that semantic memories are 'resistant to forgetting', however I know that I always forget such definitions lol

Thanks :)

I've got an upcoming research methods sac that will require us to do our own study, and then use the collected data for a written test. However, I've been struggling to think of topics that I can do or turn into operational hypothesis'. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers.

Does it have to relate to anything you've studied throughout the year?
Can it be a replication of some part study (or similar), or do you have to figure it all out yourself?

If you don't have anything you're super interested in, then testing token economies could be an easy one, or any way to modify behaviour, really. Just pick a method to test, pick the way you'll measure behaviour and write a hypothesis that links them!

Guys I only doubled with Arts because I couldn't let go of Psych and wanted to keep doing it as a major at least, but I took International Studies on a whim after the info session just because I needed a minor, and I love it so much! It's 3:29am and I had to share this, I think I'm majoring in it bye.

Hello :)
Just a quick question, would you guys recommend knowing things like Sperling's experiment for the exam even if they aren't on the study design? my teacher said we had to know it, but i'm not sure whether i should be spending my time learning other things that actually are on the study design instead :-\
:) :) :)

If something isn't on the study design, you don't have to learn it.
*beware that things can be on the study design inplicitly*
✌️just do what makes you happy ✌️

Hi :)

If in an exam or SAC, we were asked to 'write a hypothesis' should we write a research hypothesis or an operational hypothesis?

Thanks!! :)
