Zachary Ratlif PSY 220 Campos Questions 1. Campos, in the article’s introduction, discusses the biological influences of fear of heights, especially the development of neurophysiological structures. This would illustrate the nature side of the nature-nurture issue, while a contrasting view that certain experiences, such as learning how to crawl, open doors to developmental shifts, would demonstrate the nurture side. Campos also gives an example of a study done with kittens who either were given active or passive experiences of locomotion. The kittens give active experiences showed fear to heights, while the others did not, showing the importance of active and passive experiences. 2. Ecological validity refers to how the behaviors of a study can be generalized to the whole population. Certain methods and materials that exert more control tend to curb an experiment’s ecological validity, since a control group in a lab, for example, might behave diferently than normally.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
