  • Explain one technique used to study the brain in relation to behaviour [9]
    • Maguire et al (2000)
      • Describe one study related to localisation of function [9]
        • The focus of your answer should be on describing the hippocampus and how it is involved with spatial memory and learning. Explain how the changes were observed volume of the hippocampus

            • Explain neuroplasticity, making use of one study [9]
              • The focus of your answer should be on explaining the concept of neuroplasticity. Explain how the changes in volume of the hippocampus differed between taxi-drivers and non-taxi-drivers. Discuss the implications of brain plasticity in terms of neurorehabilitation.
            • Maguire can be used in an essay on research methods used in the study of brain and behaviour. It was a quasi-experiment. Focus on how the IV was naturally occuring, high controls gained from experimental procedure. It was also correlational so causation is not possible to establish
          • The main focus of your answer should be on the use of an MRI scan. Explain how it works. Describe the findings by relating to VBM and pixel counting
