Raine: How to use one study for two topics

View mindmap
  • Raine et al (1997)
    • Explain one technique used to study the brain in relation to behaviour [9]
      • The main focus of your answer should be on the use of a PET scan. Explain how it works (FDG tracer). Describe the findings by relating to differences in metabolic activity in particular lower activity in the left amygdala
    • Describe one study related to localisation of function [9]
      • The main focus of your answer should be on describing the amygdala  and how it is involved in lack of inhibition for violent behaviour, fearlessness etc. Describe  differences in metabolic activity in particular lower activity in the left amygdala between murderers and controls.
    • Raine 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 and ability to establish cause and effect
