01 With reference to attachment in young children, security of the infant attachment is associated with the security of the mother's representation.

02 With reference to attachment in young children, separation anxiety indicates insecure attachment in a 2 year old.

03 With reference to attachment in young children, secure attachments can be made to more than one caregiver.

04 With reference to attachment in young children, there are substantial cross cultural differences in infant behaviour in the Strange Situation Test.

05 With reference to attachment in young children, insecure attachment is usually followed by later behavioural problems.

06 The prefrontal cortex plays a critical role in working memory.

07 Working memory can be divided into visuo-spatial and verbal components.

08 The mesocortical dopamine system is generally intact in Parkinson's disease.

09 Parkinson's disease patients perform poorly on attention set-shifting.

10 Cortical noradrenaline has an important role in attention.

11 In social theory, the term 'role' refers to the behaviour and attributes discouraged in a defined social position.

12 In social theory, a role occupier may be defined by reference to a role alternative.

13 In social theory, role specification may be institutionalised.

14 In social theory, role conflict can arise when the demands of a role are mutually contradictory.

15 In social theory, attaching value to the individual undermines normalisation.

16 The all-night electroencephalogram (EEG) sleep recording of a healthy 30 year old male shows that delta waves are frequent in stage II sleep.

17 The all-night electroencephalogram (EEG) sleep recording of a healthy 30 year old male shows periods of rapid eye movement (REM) which become longer as the night progresses.

18 The all-night electroencephalogram (EEG) sleep recording of a healthy 30 year old male shows a rapid eye movement (REM) sleep duration of approximately 25% of the total night's sleep.

19 The all-night electroencephalogram (EEG) sleep recording of a healthy 30 year old male shows that the majority of slow wave sleep occurs in the second half of the night.

20 The all-night electroencephalogram (EEG) sleep recording of a healthy 30 year old male shows sleep spindles at 12-14 Hz.

21 Alpha-2 adrenoceptors are post- and not pre-synaptic receptors.

22 Alpha-2 adrenoceptors are blocked by mianserin.

23 Alpha-2 adrenoceptors when stimulated, reduce the blood pressure in man.

24 Alpha-2 adrenoceptors when challenged with clonidine are associated with blunted growth hormone responses in patients with panic disorder.

25 Alpha-2 adrenoceptors when stimulated suppress the symptoms of acute opiate withdrawal.

26 The UK National Psychiatric Morbidity data shows that no more than 2% of adults have a psychiatric illness.

27 The UK National Psychiatric Morbidity data shows that the increased prevalence of depression and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in urban areas is not due to unemployment.

28 The UK National Psychiatric Morbidity data shows that the increased prevalence of depression and Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) in urban areas is due to Family Unit Type.

29 The UK National Psychiatric Morbidity data shows that at least on in four adults with depressive episodes are receiving appropriate medication or psychological intervention.

30 The UK National Psychiatric Morbidity data shows that cigarette smoking is a significant risk factor for cannabis use.

31 Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) length is inversely related to the number of base sequences of genomic DNA.

32 Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) are detected by restriction endonucleases.

33 Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) are detected by radioactively labelled DNA probes.

34 Changes in base sequences that produce restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) are usually connected with the disease mutation itself.

35 Restriction fragment length polymorphisms (RFLPs) can be used to determine the position of a disease gene.

36 A disease of unknown origin attacked people attending an American Legion Convention. To determine the proportion of people attacked, a simple random sample of participants was examined. This method would identify all cases of the disease.

37 A disease of unknown origin attacked people attending an American Legion Convention. To determine the proportion of people attacked, a simple random sample of participants was examined. This method would avoid biases introduced by the method of choosing people for study.

38 A disease of unknown origin attacked people attending an American Legion Convention. To determine the proportion of people attacked, a simple random sample of participants was examined. This method would eliminate sampling error.

39 A disease of unknown origin attacked people attending an American Legion Convention. To determine the proportion of people attacked, a simple random sample of participants was examined. This method would give each participant the same chance of selection.

40 A disease of unknown origin attacked people attending an American Legion Convention. To determine the proportion of people attacked, a simple random sample of participants was examined. This method would be the simplest way of selecting a statistically valid sample.

01 With reference to attachment in young children, security of the infant attachment is associated with the security of the mother's representation.

true

02 With reference to attachment in young children, separation anxiety indicates insecure attachment in a 2 year old.

False, separation anxiety is normal in that age group

03 With reference to attachment in young children, secure attachments can be made to more than one caregiver.

True, multiple caregivers, gross

04 With reference to attachment in young children, there are substantial cross cultural differences in infant behaviour in the Strange Situation Test.

True? some differences in Japanese and German children in strange situation but not necessarily an indication of differences in attachment

05 With reference to attachment in young children, insecure attachment is usually followed by later behavioural problems.

I'd guess as around 34% are insecurely attached that this is false

06 The prefrontal cortex plays a critical role in working memory.

False, is basal forebrain which is critical. Prefrontal is personality, drive, executive function

Not sure though - puri and hall does say it affects recency and frequency in memory... ??? :-/

07 Working memory can be divided into visuo-spatial and verbal components

False, working memory is short term memory, mainly acoustic

08 The mesocortical dopamine system is generally intact in Parkinson's disease.

True - mainly nigrostriatal, Puri & Hall

09 Parkinson's disease patients perform poorly on attention set-shifting.

True, Lishman p 654 - impaired on wisconsin card sorting test and verbal fluency compared to age matched controls.

10 Cortical noradrenaline has an important role in attention.

True, Stahl - cortical projections from the locus coerulus (beta 1 receptors) have effect on mood and attention

11 In social theory, the term 'role' refers to the behaviour and attributes discouraged in a defined social position.

False, refers to behaviour and attributes encouraged

12 In social theory, a role occupier may be defined by reference to a role alternative.

????????

13 In social theory, role specification may be institutionalised. True (like role specification of women being homemakers in 50's)

14 In social theory, role conflict can arise when the demands of a role are mutually contradictory.

False? 2 or more roles are incompatible

Gosh! these are hard

15 In social theory, attaching value to the individual undermines normalisation.

FALSE

Normalisation largely evolved

as a human rights-based, critical reaction to large institutions,

the service model that dominated services for people with

learning disabilities from the 19th century. . Normalisation simply stated that

these people should be enabled to lead lives like those of

ordinary people

am I totally off the mark?!

14 In social theory, role conflict can arise when the demands of a role are mutually contradictory.

TRUE

Interrole conflict occurs when an individual is assigned simultaneous roles with conflicting expectations.

While some difficulties may arise because of conflicting role expectations, conflict may also result from an overload of expectations. Intrarole conflict occurs when too many directives are sent to one group member.

I think the Q is on intra-role conflict...oh, who cares :(

20 The all-night electroencephalogram (EEG) sleep recording of a healthy 30 year old male shows sleep spindles at 12-14 Hz.

TRUE?

spindles are the epitome of EEG synchronization at sleep onset. 7-14 Hz.

40.FOR A SAMPLE TO BE STATISTICALLY VALID, (I GUESS), YOU'LL NEED MORE INFORMATION RATHER TAHN JUST RANDOM SAMPLE. e.g SIZE OF SAMPLE, UNIT OF RANDOMISATION etc.....
