hey guys, should we know specific examples (like cases, specific research etc) to demonstrate knowledge, other than the ones specifically mentioned in the study design of course (like sperry/gazzaniga, kendal etc). should we know other textbook examples to support knowledge of material? or do we not need that in this subject?

thnks

My teacher told us that REM sleep was for the consolidation of procedural memories, and NREM was for the consolidation of declarative memories, so you could probably add that. :)

Isn't it the other way around? That REM sleep is for consolidation of declaritive memories and the cognitive aspect of procedural memories, but NREM sleep is for the 'doing' part of procedural memories? That's how my teacher explained it to me, I could be wrong, could somebody please clarify this?

It's not tested in that much depth. I have no idea but if I had to hypothesis I'd say REM does both.

Hey can someone help me out. WIth a research methods question if it states something like Dr. Watson asked all 3rd year psychology students from X university... and all agreed to participate.
would the sample be the same as the population? and therefore the results can be generalised as long as the P value isnt over 0.05.?

Population = the possible people he can choose from ; so for example ALL 3RD YR PSYCH STUDENTS from x uni
Sample = the actual people participating; so in this case the people that chose to participate

Thanks, but say it comes up in an extended response it'd probably be good to know, for example i had one trial exam where the question was to discuss the statement "if you want to commit something to memory, take a nap" and the answer sheet said 3 marks would have been allocated to discussing what sleep does what memories or something like that so does anyone happen to know?

when we say the consolidation theory involves physical changes occuring to neurons involved.. what exactly are these "physical changes"?? and is the consolidation theory linked to Richard Kandel's study on aplysia??

The changes are dendrites become bushier (more grow), an increase in neurotransmitter produced, synaptic growths. And yeah consolidation theory is linked to the Kandel and aplysia

CHYEAH BOY!

Thoughts on the exam everyone?

I herped some serious derp in Section C (lack of preparation for Alzheimers) but generally I thought it was pretty reasonable.
