Additionally he identified that different regions of the brain interact or work together to enable a process. Thus leading to his findings that loss of speech can arise from damage to the front half of the brain Schiller, 1979, cited in Toates, (2010). Geschwind (1972), cited in Toates, (2010), also found that brain regions interact to enable the performance and understanding of speech. His evidence came from an experiment that entailed a participant listening to a sentence and then repeating it. Geschwind concluded that brain interactions were necessary to carry out the instructions.

Or can psychological research explain why people may carry out such actions. Through this essay I will explore the issues of conformity and obedience and how psychological research can explain human behaviour whilst acting under these pressures. One of the earliest studies into conformity was Sherif’s (1936) (cited in Hayes & Orrell, 1998, pp 365-366) investigation using the Auto-Kinetic effect, the movement of eye muscles which cause a perceptual effect on light. When participants estimated how much the light had moved on there own their awnsers were constant. Afterwards, in groups, the participant’s answers began to merge to a group norm.
As Brown and Warner (1915) have pointed out, the difference in speed in reading names of colours and in naming colours may be accounted for the difference in experience called the "automatic word recognition hypothesis" or, as others have claimed, certain mental activities happen automatically even when not consciously stimulated by the subject. This phenomenon is due to the Stroop effect, and the following experiment aim to induce that same effect into the participants and observe the difference between reading the congruent and incongruent words. Twelve participants took part in the experiment. The data collected was analysed using the Inferential Statistical tests method, because this method enable us to assume that the whole population may behave in the same way as the participants in this experiment. The t-test value has been calculated and is found to be equal to 10.48.
This essay is Regarding research methods one in psychology. The Stroop Effect in essence is name a color word written on an opposing color. Comparison of Reaction Times for the Stroop Colour Word Task Catherine Gorman Edith Cowan University Joondalup WA Abstract The Stroop colour word task has fascinated psychologists for many years, ever since JR Stroop discovered the phenomenon in 1935, showing interference between conflicting cognitive processes relating to attention. This experiment was designed to examine the Stroop colour word task, to ascertain that it takes longer to say the incongruent colour word (naming the colour, not the written word itself) as opposed to the nonsense colour word. Eight participants volunteered to participate in this experiment.
Kahneman (as cited in Edgar, 2007) explains it in the limited capacity theory of attention. According to it, “the brain contains limited-capacity central processor responsible for analyzing incoming information and integrating it to information already held in memory” (Edgar, 2007, pp.11). Thus, when a person tries to do many things at once interference can occur if those things compete for the same pool of resources. However, Macleod (as cited in Edgar, 2007) showed that it is possible to do two things at once without interference. In his study, participants had to carry out a visual and an auditory task and respond to them by saying ‘bip’.
5. One similarity between Bandura and Freud is that the data gathered from both studies contained elements of qualitative data. For example, in the Bandura study the verbal comments from the children were observed and noted down, such as the words “pow!” or “sock him in the nose”. This is an example of qualitative data. Similarly, Freud’s study gathered qualitative data.
Introspection, an informal reflection process, is a structuralist method of engaging people to look inwardly at their experiences and sensations when reacting to certain stimuli. Developed by Edward B. Titchener in the late 19th century in attempt to dissociate the structural aspects of the human mind. While the study was flawed, being that an active, intelligible participant was necessary, it allowed for internal observation when performed successfully. Introspection gave an early answer as to why people felt the way they did about certain stimulus, it related our past recollections to our current perceptions and emotions (Myers, 2010, p. 3). Initially the design to test an introspective reaction was to measure the time between when a person heard a ball hit a platform to when they pressed a telegraph once they had perceived the sound.
Statement Name: J Patel Working Title of Study: The Influence Of Embodied Cognition Such As Facial Expression Has On Moral Judgement. Brief Outline of Study: ------------------------------------------------- Participants will firstly be given information sheets which will explain the study and information such as being able to withdraw. Participants will then be given a plastic drinking straw and asked to either hold a straw between their teeth, facilitating smiling or their lips which inhibits the smiling facial muscles. They will then be asked a set of moral dilemmas. After completing this, they will be debriefed.
Camille Marie freschi Year 12 IB Psychology (SL) CLOA: Evaluate the schema theory making reference to research studies The cognitive level of analysis is based on how mental processes such as perception, attention, language, memory and thinking in the brain processes information. It concerns the way in which we take in information from the outside world, how we make sense of that information and what use we make of it. Human beings are information processors and mental processors guide our behaviour. People actively process information by interpreting what they perceive based on what they already know. In 1932, Bartlett suggested the schema theory as one of the ways in which people process information.
