Final Psychology Review 1. Explain the Experimental Method in your own words. The experimental method involves manipulating one variable to determine if changes in one variable cause changes in another variable. This method relies on controlled methods, random assignment and the manipulation of variables to test a hypothesis. 2. Explain the Scientific Method in your own words. The approach used by psychologists to systematically acquire knowledge and understanding about behavior and other phenomena of interest. 1) Identifying questions of interests 2) Formulating an explanation 3) Carrying out research designed to support or refute the explanation 4) Communicating the findings 3. If you were running a business and you wanted to improve productivity of your employees how would you design an experiment to do that? -How can I make them work better -By giving them commison when they do their job -Make half work on commison and half not - Which employees were more productive 4. Which of the following research designs is best for demonstrating cause and affect that one variable leads to an effect on a second variable? A: Experimental Method 5. A psychologist gives a survey to college students and finds that students with higher self-esteem have more positive body image. The psychologist is using what kind of research design? A: Correlational Method 6. Parry, a graduate student in psychology wants to study the risk taking behavior in children, hes considering using natural observation method and weighing possible advantages and disadvantages. An advantage is a.) a real life setting, but a disadvantage is b.) ability to manipulate variables beyond the situation. 7. Which research method has at least one experimental and one control group? A: Experimental Method 8. Which of the following techniques used by a developmental psychologist studys groups of people of different ages at one point in time. A: Cross- Sectional Design 9. In studying the roots of prejudice a cognitive psychologist would be more likely to . A: Examine how people remember information consistent with prejudice. 10. In order to understand the unusual behavior of an adult a clinical psychologist is carefully invested in the clients current life situation in social and educational history. Which research method has this psychologist employed? A: Case Study 11. A developmental psychologist who wants to study children with ADHD goes to class rooms to study childrens behavior. Her research method could be described as A: Naturalistic Observation 12. Naturalistic observation Investigator simply observes some naturally occurring behavior and does not make a change in the situation. 13. Who developed case studies? A: Sigmund Freud 15. Placebo A false treatment, such as a pill, drug, or other substance, without any significant chemical properties or active ingredient. 16. Psychology Scientific study of behavior and mental processes. Includes peoples thoughts, emotions, perceptions, reasoning processes, memories, and even bigger biological activities that maintain bodily functions. 17. Evolutionary psychologist Branch of psychology that seeks to identify behavior patterns that are a result of our genetic inheritance from our ancestors. 18. Who is credited with the formal beginnings of psychology? A: Wilhelm Wundt estab 1st experimental lab 19. Which psychologists are associated with the behavioral perspective? A: 1st John Watson, Skinner 20. What is the main component of the humanistic perspective? (key concept , be all you can be) A: Carl Rogers & Abraham Maslow This approach suggests that all individuals naturally strive to grow, develop and be in control of their lives and behavior. EMPHASIS: Free will ability to freely make decisions about ones behavior and life. Self- actualization is the highest level need where people realize their highest potential. 21. What are stimulants? Identify them A: Drugs that have arousal effect on central nervous system, causing rise in heart rate, blood pressure and muscular tension. Ex: Caffeine, Amphetamines ( Dexedrine, Benzedrine) Methamphetamine, Cocaine. 22. Stages of sleep. Stage 1-relatively rapid, low-amp brain waves Stage 2-slower more regular wave pattern Stage 3-brain waves are slower with higher peaks and lower valleys Stage 4 lower brain waves hardest to wake 23. What stage do you see A) Sleep spindles- Stage 2 B) Night terrors Stage 4 C) Dreams REM sleep 24. Classes of drugs Stimulants have an arousal effect on central nervous system, causing a rise in heart rate, blood pressure and muscle tension. (ex: caffine, amphetamines, cocaine) Depressants slow down the nervous system (ex: alcohol, roffies) Narcotics increase relaxation and relieve pain and anxiety (ex: morphin, heroin) Hallucinogens Capable of producing hallucinations, or change in perceptual process. (ex: weed, ecstasy, LSD, oxygen) 25. What % of American high school seniors have reported using weed in the last year? A: 31 % of high school seniors. 26. Attribution theory Seeks to explain how we decide, on the basis of samples of an individuals behavior, what the specific causes of that persons behavior are. Situational causes Brought about by something in the environment. Dispositional causes Bases on internal traits or personality factors. Attribution error- The tendency to exaggerate the importance of personality characteristics(dispositional) in producing others behavior, minimizing the influence of the environment (situational). 27. Describe Experiments Festinger- Conducted an experiement to test cognitive dissonance by giving people $1 to describe a boring task as interesting and $20 to people to just say the task was interesting. The people that were paid $1 were more likely to change their attitudes than people paid $20. Zimbrado- Prison Study How we conform to social roles. Asch Did Line test experiment to test conformity: A change in behavior/attitudes brought by a desire to follow the beliefs or standards of other people 28. Trait Theory Seeks to explain in a straightforward way, the consistencies in individuals behavior. Cardinal A single characteristic that directs most of a persons activites (ex: selflessness) Central (primary) Major characteristics of an individual, usually from 5 to 10 of them (ex: honesty and sociability) Secondary characteristics that affect behavior in fewer situations and are less influential than central and cardinal. 28. How to reduce prejudice and discrimination. - Increasing contact between the target of steryotypeing and the holder of the stereotype. - Making values and norms against prejudice more conspicuous. - Providing information about the targets of stereotyping. 29. Who was the most influential psychologist to study operational conditioning ?(ch6) A: Skinner With the skinner box Rat presses bottom& gets food eventually learning the connection. 30. Schedules of reinforcement Continuous Reinforcing a behavior every time it occurs Partial (or intermittent) Reinforcing of a behavior some but not all of the time. 31. Stimulus Discrimination Occurs if two stimuli are sufficiently distinct from one another that one evokes a conditioned response but the other doesnt. Stimulus Generalization Occurs when a conditioned response follows a stimulus that is similar to the original conditioned stimulus. 32. How does psychology define learning? A relatively permanent change in behavior brought about by experience. 33. What was the Banduras bobo doll measuring? A: Observational learning - observation 34. Cognitive psychologist and what they studied. Bandura- Social cognitive approach to learning (observational learning) bobo doll Tolmen- Rats in maze - Latent Learning - new behavior is learned by not demonstrated until some incentive is provided for displaying it. 35. Memory process by which one encodes, stores and retrieves information. Encoding initial recording information Storage info saved for future use Retrieval Recovery of stored info 36. Implicit memory- memories of which people are not consciously aware but that can affect subsequent performance and behavior. ( jumping out of way when a car is about to hit you) Explicit memory Intentional or conscious recollection of info ( remembering names and dates) 37. Mnemonic devicesChunking magic 7 break in chunks of 7 to learn easily 5-9 is normal 38. What is the nativist approach and who is know for it?

Survey people chosen to represent a larger population are asked a series of questions about their behavior, thoughts and attitudes. 80. Case Study An in-depth, intensive investigation of an individual or small group of people. 81. Archival Research research in which existing data, such as census documents, college records, and newspaper clippings, are examined to test a hypothesis. 82. Difference between Independent and dependant variableIndependent Variable that is manipulated by an experimenter. Dependent Variable measured and expected to change as a result of changes caused by the experimenters manipulation of the independent variable. 83. Correlation coefficient mathematical statistic that represents the strength and direction of the relationship between 2 variables. Negative correlation as the value of one variable increases, the value of the other decreases Positive correlation as the value of one variable increases, we can predict the other will too Zero correlation little or no correlation exists 84. Experimental research requires at least 2 or more groups. What are groups called? Experiment group and Control group. 85. Why do we have random assignment in experimental method? This is where participants are randomly assigned to groups by chance alone. A: Because chances are each group of people will have approximately the same proportion of intelligent people, cooperative people, extroverted people males and females and so on. 86. Ethical guidelines? Are in place because research has the potential to violate the rights of participants, psychologists are expected to adhere to strict ethical guidelines. - Protection of participants from physical and mental harm. - The right of participants to privacy regarding their behavior - The assurance that participation in research is completely voluntary - The necessity of informing participants about the nature of procedures before their participation in the experiment. 87. Placebo effectsAfter receiving a placebo treatment patients have perceived or actual improvement in medical health. 88. Experimental Bias Factors that distort how the independent variable affects the dependent variable in an experiment.
