1. What did Gallup's (1970) mirror test study show?

  • The longer the chimp was exposed to the mirror the more the social responses increased
  • The length of time the chimp was exposed to the mirror had no affect on type of response
  • Chimps learned that it was not another chimp in the mirror, with this knowledge social responses decreased and self directed responses increased.
  • Chimps learned that it was not another chimp in the mirror, with this knowledge self directed responses decreased and social responses increased.

2. What is a quesar experiment?

  • An experiment with a longitudinal non-direct design, used for abstract variables e.g the self that can't be 'switched on/off'
  • An experiment with a correlational design, used for abstract variables e.g the self that can't be 'switched on/off'
  • A naturalistic experiment where variables such as the Self can be measured

3. What is Markus and Kityama's view on the self?

  • A dynamic process in which the self arises, is changed by internalised societal values and becomes formalised into a discrete entity.
  • The self arises and is continously modified through the agent's interaction with society, a dynamic process with different cross-cultural significance.

  • The mediation of basic instincts and drives through the pineal gland which houses the 'essence' of the self
  • There are 3 types of self, it's constituents (The material/spiritual self), the feelings and emotions they arouse (self-feelings e.g self-dissatisfaction/complacency) and self-actions, the actions to which they prompt e.g self-preservation
  • The self as a reconciliation of unconcious forces that govern our behaviour.
  • The self = the soul (immaterial) which controls the 'machine' of the body through the pineal gland.

5. How does fMRI work?

  • Detects K+ levels in the blood, as blood flows through the brain you can see neural activity in real time.
  • Detects amount of blood in one area of the brain, as blood flows through the brain you can see neural activity in real time.
  • Detects iron levels in the blood, as blood flows through the brain you can see neural activity in real time.
  • Detects haemoglobin levels in the blood, as blood flows through the brain you can see neural activity in real time.
