1. What are the benifits and limitations of Cross Sectional Designs
    • Benifit: Cheap, Quick, Easy
    • Limiation: Exagerates results
  2. What are the benifits and limitations of Longitudinal Research
    • Benifit?
    • Limitations: Takes a loooooonnnggg time! and minimises the data
  3. What are the benifits and limitations of Sequential Desings
    Benifit: More realistic results, very efficiant and accurate in a smaller amount of time
  4. What is the best way to measure development ?
    (out of cross sectional - longitudinal - sequential)
  5. What is wrong with coss sectional, longitudional and sequential research?
    They are ALL correlational designs. We do not know the cause of why things are happening.
  6. Erik Eriksons said people continue to change their whole lives and believes there are 8 different stages to live. What are the 8 stages and what ages do these happen at?
    • 1. Basic Trust vs Mistrust
    • birth to 1

    • 2. Autonimy vs Shame & Doubt
    • 1 to 3

    • 3. Inittique vs Guilt
    • 3 to 6

    • Middleage

    • 8. Ego Integrity vs Despair
    • elderly years/ not having much time left
  7. What effects cause people to change?
    And Why?
    • Maturational Effects (biological)
    • Cohort and Age Normative Effects
    • Idiosync

    Why? Becuase they all add up over a life time
  8. What are Maturational Effects
    • Biological Effects
    • things like puberty and physical development
  9. What are Cohort and Age Normative Effects
    • Cohort: A Special Subtype of age normative effects

    • - they can habituate
    • -can be classically conditioned
    • -can be operantly conditioned
  14. What is Miolen, and why is it necessary in development of newborns
    New borns have very little miolen becuase of this they have lots of reflexs. If one thing is stimulated, something else will happen. The more miolen there is the less this will happen. It gets rid of the unwanted reflexs
  15. What are the aspects of tempraments
    • -Activity Levels

    4.. Formal Operations - beginning at 12 years
  17. Who was Jean Piaget and what were his thoughts
    a stage theorist.

    what he said was wrong around the margins but as a whole correct

    he tends to focus on more of what children can NOT do rather than what they can do
  18. What is Assimilation and Accommodation?
    Describe the differences
    • Assimilation is when u try to change new things to fit into what u know
    • eg.... like if u see a horse for the first time, u think ok well it has 4 legs like a dog, it runs like a dog, it has short hair like a dog, then maybe its just a big dog

    Accommodation is when u change ur thoughts to accept new things in the environment

  27. To really know a language you need to know all four aspects, what are these? and little about each?
    • 1. Phonology (Phonems)
    • - changing a sounds changes a word. e.g rat cat bat. They are the sounds that make up languages

    • 2. Semantics
    • - vocabularly, morphems
    • sounds hat have meaning e.g chair. Has past tense

    • 3. Syntax

    Holophrastic speech

    • Telegraphic Speech
    • around 2 years

    • Addition of Grammatical Morphemes
    • 2.5 to around 5
  29. What happens in Acquisition stage
    • -babies react to language differently
    • -only the left hemispgere responds to language
    • - descriminate different phonems

    • coo for 1 month (vowel sounds)
    • babbling 3-4 months (short sylabols, consistant vowel sounds)

    At 9 months babies start to only babble phonems from the language
  30. What happens in Holophrastic Speech Stage
    (1 word)

    • predispositions (in,on)
    • plurals
    • possesives
    • articles
    • negative sentences and questions
  33. What are the Three stages of developing a language? and what does this show for children?
    • 1st stage is Pidgen language
    • 2nd stage Creedle languate
    • 3rd a language is created

    Shows you dont need learning to create a language
  34. What evidence supports natures sides of development
    In born phonology
  35. Attachment is very important you need at least _ good attachment in the first year of your life
  36. What are the 4 Stages of Attachment Development + Ages
    • 1. Asocial age

  37. What happens in the "Asocial" stage of attachment development
    the babies dont care about people, including parents
  38. What happens in the "Indiscriminate Attachment" stage of development
    The babies figure out that people are good but still dont really care for any one inperticular
  39. What happens in the "First specifit attachment" stage of development
    Babie forms attachment to parents or caregiver. At this stage it is only one peron
  40. What happens at the "Multiple Attachment" Stage of Development
    Baby will now be attached to both parents and begin to form attachments to others around them
  41. What was eriksons theory about attachment

    • there is adaptive behavious, but htis does not happen untill the infant is mobile, becuase babies do not attach untill the can wander off.
    • - they become attached after the learn to crawl
  44. What happens in the cognitive development view of attachment?
    • happens at around 7-8 months
    • has to do with sufficent object permanance/memory

  45. What are the characteristics of securely attached children? and what % of children got this from the experiment. What parenting style causes this?

    What kinda of parenting style goes with this?
    They are very scared of being left. When mum does leave they get very pissed off, when she returns they get mad and hits mum.

    Around 10 % of children showed this from the experiment

    This comes from well meaning but inconsistent parents
