Did you know that (most of) these concepts were discovered and validated through extensive scientific research? In the early days, there were several notorious studies which provided indispensable knowledge about human thinking and behavior. Now they are considered to be outrageous violations of human and animal rights. Chapter 2 takes you through those infamous studies and other events that led to the advent of strict regulations on psychological research. You’ll also learn about what it takes for a study to be considered “valid” and “reliable”, how to tell the difference between correlation and causation, and how to find out if that study you saw posted on social media the other day means anything. Chapter 9 – The Knowing Mind: Memory Want to know some studying hacks? Not surprisingly, pulling an “all-nighter” before an exam isn’t your best bet. But caffeine could be. Learn how techniques such as mnemonics, chunking, and others can help you study and remember other important information. Numerous factors can affect the efficiency of your memory abilities. Memories are created by a complex brain system. Our memory is incredibly adaptive to our experiences, which you are about to learn all about. Chapter 16 – The Healthy Mind: Stress and Coping, Health Psychology, and Positive Psychology Stress is a concept most of us in American culture can relate to. It is also no secret that stress affects our health. Chapter 16 gets to the bottom of the human physiological responses to stress, from day to day frustrations to “fight or flight”. You will also learn how psychology impacts our health in other ways. Article #1 a) List the psychology concept from the text chapter represented in the first article you chose.
