      • Classical conditioning
      • Association
      • UCS-UCR, NS, CS-CR
      • Generalised
      • Law of contiguity
    • Evaluate the behaviourist approack
      • Practical application, systematic desensitisation and flooding (phobias)
      • Environmentally determinst, gives clear predictions e.g Little Albert
        • Also means it lacks a full understanding of interactionsim
      • Only considers nurture, not a full understanding of interactionsim
      • Many of the experiments were conducted on animals, can't extrapolate results to humans
    • Key research for cognitive neuroscience
      • Eleanor Maguire
      • Aim: to examine whether structural changes could be detected in the brains of people with extensive experience of spatial navigation
      • Method: structural MRI scans obtained. 16 right handed male taxi drivers (driving for over 1.5 years)
      • Result 1: Increased grey matter found in the left and right hippocampi after being compared with a control group
      • Result 2: changes with navigation experience, correlation between amount time spent driving and volume in the right posterior hippocampus
      • Conclusion, extensive practive with spatial navigation affects the hippocampus
    • What is the mean, what is a strength and weakness of using it?
      • The average- figured out by adding up all the digits and dividing by the number there are
      • Accurate, sensitive measure of the mean, includes all scores

    • what are schemas
      • cognitive frameworks
      • help us to organise and interpret information

      • reduces participant variables
      • age and gender
