AS Abnormality- Biological Approach

HideShow resource information

The Biological Approach:

this approach studies the relationship between behaviour and the body's various physiological system with the brain. The brain is the focus for most biological psychologists as it is the process centre controlling all complex behaviour.

Assumptions of the Biological Approach:

1) Genetic Inheritance: it is possible for someone to inherit a mental problem from an earlier generation- family or relatives. This then becomes the gene that the individual inherits. The best way to test is through using twin studies and seeing the concordance rate of MZ (indentical twins) and DZ (non-identical twins)

2) Biochemistry: the relationship between neurotransmitters
