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!! :)

Definitely research hypothesis for the exam. Operational hypotheses were only required in the old study design.

However, in terms of SACs, it should also be a research hypothesis but you might want to check with your teacher in case they want you to write an operational one.

Could somebody help me out with the overall roles of the cortical lobes? I know the roles of the sensory areas, association areas etc but I'm struggling to work out the overall role of each lobe.

Thanks for your help :)

Edrolo for psych is my life. I've gotten 100% on every sac so far and all I do is watch her videos, 10/10 wouldn't be getting those marks without Kristy Kendall. Let's just say I got B/c's in year 11 with extensive notetaking/ copying-out-the-textbook- purely because edrolo was non existent to me.

You won't regret it! Can't reccomend edrolo enough :)

Thanks for your help :)

Frontal lobes - "Higher order thinking," voluntary movements (through motor cortices), speech production (through Broca's area), planning, organising, problem-solving, emotions and personality.
Parietal lobes - Sense perception (through somatosensory cortices), and attention.
Temoral lobes - Memory, speech comprehension (through Wernicke's area) and auditory perception (through auditory cortex).
Occipital lobes - Primarily involved in vision (through visual cortex).

Hope this helps! :)

The amgdala is in the medial temporal lobe right? So would that mean that the temporal lobe would play part in emotions??  ???

Hi :)

Just wondering if anyone knows which specific brain structures we need to know for AOS1 (learning)?
Do we just need to know the hippocampus/amygdala or should we know others as well (like cerebellum/basal ganglia, etc.)?

Thanks :)

Not the cerebellum/basal ganglia or hypothalamus. Hippocampus and amygdala are key and the neural structure they consist of.

Yes that's correct - the Frontal Lobe is primarily involved in controlling and expressing emotions, however the temporal lobe also has a bit to do with emotions (primarily in regards to emotional memory) :)

Hi!

So we have to create an ERA about learning. I've chosen observational learning, and in particular, the aspect of reproduction. I need help with thinking of a creative, convenient and quick experiment. The only thing i can think of involves an online puzzle, but my teacher said it's too simple :(

I'm tossing up between two different IV's: gender, or exposure to model. While the former will mean that there is only one condition, there isn't a lot of prior research with this IV. However, the latter option will entail more work cause it requires two conditions (I sound like a lazy pig, but I'm just seriously stuck).

If anyone could share any ideas or inputs, that would be great. It is also important that the experiment can be completel within a few minutes during school- nothing too cumbersome.

Thankyou!
