1.
After reading chapter 2, what factors do you think have contributed most to who you are today? For example, are you more a product of early interpersonal bonds or losses (attachment theory) or learning or modeling (behavioral)? Or are you just a product of the billions of neurons in your body and how they function and interact with each other? Any other contributors to who you are?
As you have aged, how have your peers influenced your behavior? Was there ever a change in their degree of influence? Do you think there is a time when peers influence a child’s development more than other factors, like parents and siblings? Why or why not?
2.
You’ve viewed the lecture materials on 3 different types of study designs and you have completed one personal assignment to work through your understanding of the distinction among the three types. Now we will have a group discussion to finalize your understanding. Read the scenario below.
Mark wants to evaluate a new diabetes monitoring system that uses a phone app that automatically nudges the user to report glucose levels every morning and evening. He recruits participants and then draws a number from a hat to assign them to receive either the new app or the old self-reported paper diary system (to be completed every morning and evening). He compares the two groups on how frequently they record their glucose levels over 6 weeks.
Observation, Experiment, or Quasi-experiment?
In your response to this scenario, address the following issues (in a list format):
1. Is there any randomization indicated? If so, what text in the passage above indicates this?
2. Is there any manipulation of the situation indicated? If so, what text in the passage above indicates this?
3. Is there any control/comparison group or situation? If so, as indicated by what text?
4. Based on your answers to 1-3, what type of study design do you think it is? Observation, Experiment, or Quasi-experiment?
Special grading note: On this DQ only, your grade will be entirely based on your initial post. However, if you return to the board and respond meaningfully and helpfully to another student to help clarify their understanding of any concepts, you can earn up to 2 extra credit points. If your reply is vague and/or not helpful, it will not earn extra points.

If nearly all the people who compose a group lean in the same direction on a par

If nearly all the people who compose a group lean in the same direction on a particular issue, the group will move even further in that direction. This phenomenon is known as group polarization.
An extreme form of group polarization, known as groupthink, occurs when the group members suppress their doubts about a group’s decision for fear of creating a wrong impression or disrupting group harmony. The main elements leading to groupthink are overconfidence by the leadership, underestimating the problems, and pressure to conform. Sometimes dissenters conform independently, and sometimes the leadership actively urges them to conform.
In groupthink, people start thinking alike, whereas, in group polarization, people start to think differently. In other words, in groupthink, people stay quiet because they fear a strong leader, while in group polarization, people speak up because they lack a strong leader. Now, let us look at the eight steps we can take to avoid groupthink and group polarization.
The eight-step ethical decision-making model aims to guide healthcare professionals to avoid ethical dilemmas.
The eight steps of the model include:
identify the problem,
consideration of context and setting,
identification and use of ethical and legal resources,
consideration of personal beliefs and values,
consider possible solutions for the problem,
consideration of potential consequences of all possible decisions,
choice and implementation of course of action,
outcome assessment and implementation of necessary changes.
Sequential order is optional for the model, as steps may fall out of order throughout the decision-making process.
For week 5, for your initial discussion post, watch the two videos below:
What is Group Polarization? Group Polarization Explained.
Conformity and groupthink.
After watching the two videos, use the FNU library and find one (1) peer-reviewed article on group polarization and one (1) peer-reviewed article on groupthink. Then, in 250-350 words or less, explain how you can use one or more of the ethical steps listed above to avoid group polarization and groupthink.
Be sure to review the Undergraduate Discussion Rubric before you submit your initial discussion post.

CAMP 1 – Career Interests & Possibilities
General instructions:
When responding to questions for this assignment, questions need to be
responded to in complete sentences in paragraph format. Yes/No answers
are not sufficient; and most questions will require more than one
sentence answers. Be sure to provide cite information (identify your
source) so that it is clear what information is from which source and
what information is your interpretation or your thoughts. Label your
written report with the following headings: Career Interest Assessment,
Career Possibility Investigation, Summary.
A. Career Interest Assessment
For
this part of the assignment, you will complete an online inventory that
will provide you with information about the kinds of careers that could
be a good choice for you. The inventory will consist of questions about
your interests, skills, and preferred activities. When you complete the
inventory, you will receive feedback on your results, including the
kinds of careers that people like you (similar interests and skills)
find interesting and rewarding.
In a written report, you will need to:
a) Provide your personality profile along with your understanding of the profile
b) How well do the types represent you? Explain if it does or not.
c) Do I enjoy or like one of the types more than the others? If so, which one?
Surveys:
The online inventory is called the “Self-Directed Search” (or “SDS”) and can be accessed at www.self-directed-search.com.
Taking the SDS costs $9.95 (also, see next paragraph for free option).
Once you complete the SDS, you will receive a report with your results,
including which career “personality types” your results match up with.
Based on your career “type,” the report will provide suggestions for the
careers that could be a good fit for you in terms of your interests and
skills. You can then use the careers suggested for you to do Part B of
the assignment.
For a similar inventory that you do not have to pay to take, you can access a free career interest inventory at http://www.mynextmove.org/explore/ip.
This free inventory will not give you as much information as the SDS,
but you would still get enough information to complete this assignment
and learn about how your career interests and personality match up with
career choices for you to consider.
B. Career Possibility Investigation
For
this part of the assignment, use the career suggestions you received
from the interest inventory you completed for Part A to choose one or
two possible careers that you could pursue. The go online to find
information about those careers. The careers can be in psychology or
other fields (you may especially be interested in related fields, such
as counseling and social work).
Here is a list of web sites for investigating career possibilities:
www.bls.gov/ooh (this is the site for the Occupational Outlook Handbook)
www.onetonline.org (this is the “O*Net” site)
www.careersinpsychology.org
www.psywww.com (click on “Careers in Psychology by Marky Lloyd)
In a written report, provide the following information on at least 2 possible career choices. (answer questions separately for each career and identify the sources used to obtain information):
a) What do I know about this type of position?
b) Is this something I would like to do?
c) What skills does it require?
d) What level of education would I need?
e) Do I know anyone who does this kind of work?
Or how could I find someone who does?
f) Is there a position similar to this one I would enjoy better? What is it?
g) How much money do people in this career make per year?
h) What is the future employment outlook (availability of jobs) for this position?
i) How does this career differ from the one I wanted to do when I was growing up?
C) Summary :
Answer the following questions:
a) What did I learn about myself in terms of my interests and how they relate to possible
career choices for me?
b) What are the two or three most important things I learned about careers, especially the
ones I am interested in?

Hi this is a lab question for a psychology class called Neuron Psychology, the idea of the assignment is to read the pdf article attached below and answer the question in the instruction given by the instructor below. Use only the pdf article attached. The instruction below has more info and the questions.
Instruction by the instructor
Carefully read the article attached, then answer the questions below.
Answer the following questions in a separate file that contains only your numbered answers.
Do not include the questions in your answer file.
Name the file “Lab2_YOURLASTNAME.doc” (or .docx).
The purpose of these questions is to ensure that you read and understand the article prior to working with the raw data during lab.
Answer the questions in your own words.
Quotations and plagiarism are not acceptable.
You should not need to consult sources beyond the article.
Use complete sentences with appropriate capitalization and punctuation.
You just want to demonstrate that you understand the gist of each answer.
Long, detailed answers are not necessary.
These pre-lab questions will help you understand the motivations behind the study, as well as the results and conclusions the authors make based on their findings.
This is in preparation for the next two labs. During these labs, you will be replicating the main analyses using the raw data from this paper.
Please submit your answers in a new word document – do not include any text from this document in your submission.
Do not include a heading with your name, the class name, Dr. Ketels’ name, etc. – Canvas keeps track of that for us.
As always make sure to check out the grading rubric for this assignment!
Lab 2: Pre-Lab Article Questions
1. What is the sentence superiority effect? Be sure to describe the different conditions needed to examine sentence superiority.
2. What is the visuospatial bootstrapping effect? Be sure to describe the different conditions needed to examine visuospatial bootstrapping.
3. According to the introduction, briefly explain why the prior effects indicate an interaction between short-term memory (STM) and long-term memory (LTM)?
4. According to the introduction, what approach do the authors say they use to understand if the hippocampus is necessary for STM/LTM integration (e.g., what is the study’s approach)? Briefly, what does this approach entail?
5. In the Experiment 1 results, (a) did the size of the sentence superiority effect differ between amnesic patients and normal control subjects? Think: what variable’s main effect or interactions between variables would answer this question? (b) Report the ANOVA results that support this conclusion (e.g., F(df1, df2) = X, p = Y).
6. In the Experiment 1 results, (a) did the size of the sentence superiority effect differ between amnesic patients with damage limited to the hippocampus (H) and those whose MTL damage extended beyond the hippocampus (H+)? (b) Report the ANOVA results that support this conclusion (e.g., F(df1, df2) = X, p = Y).
7. What do the Experiment 1 results suggest about the necessity of the hippocampus and MTL cortex for observing the sentence superiority effect?
8. In the Experiment 2b results, (a) did the size of the visuospatial bootstrapping effect differ between amnesic patients and normal control subjects? (b) Report the ANOVA results that support this conclusion (e.g., F(df1, df2) = X, p = Y).
9. In the Experiment 2b results, (a) did the size of the visuospatial bootstrapping effect differ between amnesic patients with damage limited to the hippocampus (H) and those whose MTL damage extended beyond the hippocampus (H+)? (b) Report the ANOVA results that support this conclusion (e.g., F(df1, df2) = X, p = Y).
10. What do the Experiment 2 results suggest about the necessity of the hippocampus and
MTL cortex for observing the visuospatial bootstrapping effect?
11. From the General Discussion, (a) summarize the domain-specific theories of
hippocampal function the authors discuss on p. 278, and (b) name and provide an example of the associations important for these theories.
12. What do the results of these studies suggest about extending the domain-specific
theories to the binding of information across STM and LTM (STM-LTM integration) and why? (Hint: this can be answered in one sentence)
13. In the General Discussion, what two memory models do the authors discuss in relation to their own results?
14. Your textbook distinguishes between lesion studies using the single case, group, and multiple-case approaches. Which approach, or perhaps combination of approaches, did this study use?
Thank you!!!
