So there are some confounding variables that can alter your ability to remember some words, rather than just rehearsal, or attention, as suggested in the multi-store memory model. Of course, this experiment lacks mundane realism, but tested many Participants, and produced quantative data, in controlled laboratory conditions, such can be considered to be
It was also because we had to take two measurements (one for diameter another for height)...which could possibly create more mistakes. Furthermore, you need to multiply diameter and height to get to the volume, so any one of those reading had a mistake, the error would compound and get worse. The same is not true with measuring with graduated cylinder, which is just a one shot reading. If that reading is off a bit, it won't impact the density as much 2- Did you find that density was intensive or extensive? Explain A- It was intensive.
Our scale only measures to grams accurately, and could have not accurately represented the .68g of CaCO3, or we could have lost the solid precipitate in the process of the experiment. These errors could be reduced with a more accurate scale, as well as more experienced hands performing the procedure, or skilled hands, ie: we are novices at this lab, and training could produce more accurate
The confidence intervals do overlap in this experiment; therefore the smaller light intensities does not have a signficant effect on the movment of Acheta domesticus as measured in 30 seconds. Thus, we fail to reject Ho, indicating that there is insufficent evidence to say that light intensity does affect the rate of movment as measured in 30 seconds of the Acheta domesticus. The age, size, and number of limbs of the crickets may have affected our resluts as this could have slowed or speed up their rate of
Stopping is hard as the addcitive substance alters thinking patterns in the brain o drug use continues even though they know no reward is coming. They effectively have no self control. This means they have shorter periods of abtinacne. One of the strengths of the disease model addiction is that there is supporting reaearch. Volkow gave Ritalin to a group of participants he found that some of the participents enjoyed the experience while others didn’t.
There are various methods that are used to study cortical specialisation. Which can be discussed under separate headings; Clinical/anatomical methods which involve intervention of the brain which is accidental such as injury to and disease of the brain. There are also invasive methods which involve intervention of the brain which is deliberate. Other methods used to study cortical specialisation are non-invasive methods which involve recording the brains activity without making deliberate interventions. Clinical and anatomincal studies compare what people could do before their brain damage with what they can do afterwards.
He gave participants two lists with similar or dissimilar acoustic and semantic words. He found that the PS had difficulty in recalling the acoustically similar words in STM, but not in LTM. This is the total opposite to the semantic lists, that where easily remembered in the STM test. In general, STM appears to story all information acoustically. However, some tests have shown that visual codes are also stored in STM.
For example, one of the main constituents of a phobia is generally described as being where the ‘anxiety causes interference with the functioning of a normal life’, but what if different doctors had different ideas of what a normal life was? You would be classed as phobic by one and not by the other. Another main issue relating to the classification of phobias is the fact that an anxiety disorder may present differently in different cultures, so it is not universalisable. For example, in Japan people can get diagnosed with phobias of offending people through one’s own awkwardness, but in Western countries this doesn’t exist. This is probably because in Japan there
My impression of the IAT is that it may be accurate, but it really depends on the person taking it. These test are not accurate just used for research but I still feel as though it’s a better way to administer the test. The test made me think about the way they ordered to images and words and kept rearranging them making you use both your dominant and non-dominant hand to
