Section b (12 marks) will ask you to give four problems or 2 strengths and 2 weaknesses of the theme or issue in the question. Importantly the question is asking you to relate the problem to the issue in the question (e.g. nature nurture) and not the study. Again, if you use the words in the question you are unlikely to be wrong.
Genetic studies intend to help people with autism, not wipe them out. There are fears genetics research into autism will lead to eugenics and eradication of the condition.
Understanding and quantifying t he relationship between autism spectrum disorder and offending behaviour is a complex and sensitive task, but one which is becoming increasingly necessary for a number of reasons. This essay seeks to explore the burgeoning body of research on this subject and draw conclusions on the nature of any relationship.
Who was group 1 in Baron Cohen and describe how they were recruited Group 1 was Experimental with 16 people, 13 males and 4 females, with HFA or Aspergers Syndrome. It was volunteer as he participants were recruited using an advert in the National Autistic Society magazine as well as through clinics.
Females on average score higher on the EQ than males (Baron-Cohen, 2003), and as previously reported, we found similar trends in the four samples in this study. Therefore, we investigated the extent to which the correlations between musical preferences and empathy are independent of sex.
Unsurprisingly, some of those elements are very much present in every frame of the series by Baron Cohen, who by chance is also the cousin of the well-known clinical psychologist Prof. Simon Baron-Cohen. One conclusion reached by Milgram and his associates, for example, is that people will tend more to extreme cooperation in a situation that is.
Baron-Cohen is by far the biggest contributor to our knowledge of ToM. However, most of the information he has collected has been from his work on children with autism. Examination advice from AQA(A) Psychology: The board specifies Theory of Mind (Baron-Cohen) which means that they can ask a question specifically about his theory.
Baron-Cohen went further, developing the “Eyes Task”, where a subject has to infer the mental state of a person from just looking at a picture of the person's eyes (Baron-Cohen, et al., 1997). When this test was used, adults with autism and Asperger's were significantly impaired in ToM functioning.
