## PSYC Statistics

Part One:

Note: For the two-way ANOVA, you will be expected to create a line graph as covered in the SPSS tutorial in the Course Content (and not a boxplot as in the textbook). This applies to future cumulative questions as well.

Green & Salkind: Lesson 26, Exercises 1, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8

The following helpful tips are numbered to correspond with the exercise number to which they refer (a dash indicates that no tips are needed):

1.     Instead of identifying these values on your output, as the text states, please write them into your Word file as written answers for #1 a, b, c, and d. (2 pts for output; a-d = 2 pts each)

4.     Produce a line graph instead of a boxplot for this problem. Follow directions in course SPSS tutorial for setting up a line graph. (2 pts)

5.     ——-  (2 pts)

6.     ——-  (2 pts)

7.     All homework “Results sections” should follow the example given in the Course Content document “Writing Results of Statistical Tests in APA Format” (note: you do not have to refer to a figure). (2 pts)

8.     Produce a line graph instead of a boxplot for this problem. Follow directions in course SPSS tutorial for setting up a line graph. (2 pts)

Part Two:

1.     A health psychologist is interested in the effects of exercise on stress in people who regularly exercise. Specifically, she is interested in the type of exercise as well as the time of day that the individual exercises. She recruits participants from a local health club who regularly participate in one of three types of exercise:  swimming, aerobics, and tennis. She further divides these participants by whether they exercise in the morning or the evening. She then administers a questionnaire to each individual assessing their self-reported stress level. (HIGHER SCORE = HIGHER STRESS). Conduct a two-way ANOVA to analyze these data. Use Tukey’s test in order to conduct any necessary post hoc analyses if there are significant main effects. You do not have to follow up on significant interactions at this time.

The steps will be the same as the ones you have been practicing in Part One of the assignment—the only difference is that you are now responsible for creating the data file as well. Remember to name and define your variables under the “Variable View,” then return to the “Data View” to enter the data. (2 pts for output, – 1 pt if no post hoc)

2.     Write an APA-style results section describing the outcome. All homework “Results sections” should follow the example given in the Course Content document “Writing Results of Statistical Tests in APA Format” (note: you do not have to refer to a figure). For the two-way ANOVA, be sure to include statistical statements concerning the F ratios and p values for both main effects and the interaction, and interpretation statements about all 3 of these effects. (2 pts)

3.     Is there a significant interaction effect? (2 pts)

4.     Based on your results, is there one type of exercise that seems more effective in reducing stress than the others? Remember that higher scores = higher stress. (2 pts)

This assignment is due by 11:59 p.m. (ET) on Monday of Module/Week 4.

Part Three:  Cumulative Homework

1.   An investigator in child development research is studying the development of object permanence – the understanding that an object still exists even if its out of sight. She tests three groups of infants – ten who are 9 months old, 8 who are 12 months old, and 10 who are 15 months old. She presents each of the infants with 10 trials. On each trial, a toy is first shown to the child and then covered with a piece of cloth. The infant demonstrates object permanence if he or she looks for the object when it’s covered. Each infant is given a score for the number of trials (out of 10) on which he or she shows object permanence. Is there a significant difference between the groups on demonstrations of object permanence? Choose the correct test to analyze this question, set up the SPSS file, and run the analysis. Follow the directions under the table below.

c)     Write an APA-style results section describing the outcome. All homework “Results sections” should follow the example given in the Course Content document “Writing Results of Statistical Tests in APA Format” (note: you do not have to refer to a figure). (2 pts)

2.     A researcher wanted to investigate whether there was a difference in satisfaction ratings in an assisted living facility between residents who had a pet with them vs. those who did not have a pet.  She administered a scale asking them to rate their overall satisfaction with the facility.  Did having a pet have an impact on the residents’ overall satisfaction levels? Choose the correct test to analyze this question, set up the SPSS file, and run the analysis. Follow the directions under the table below (on next page).

Assignment 3: An Interview of Your Choice

By Wednesday, February 25, 2015 complete the assignment presented below.

In order to really learn about interviewing, you must practice doing interviews. There is no substitute for direct experience in learning about interviewing. This assignment will be the first of several interviews you conduct during this course.

Find a volunteer to role-play a client. The purpose of this assignment is to introduce you to the experience of formulating questions and gathering information during a clinical interview. You are not expected to have mastered these skills in week 1 nor even by the end of this course. Clinical interviewing is a skill that requires a lot of practice and years of training.

Here, you will simply interview the volunteer who is role-playing a client that is having trouble at work. Be sure to develop a plan for the interview ahead of time. What is the purpose of your interview?  How will you achieve that purpose?

Be sure to follow the ethical guidelines you have read about, including competence, confidentiality, and informed consent. The interview should be at least 10 minutes in length but no more than 20 minutes.

After you complete your interview, provide a thoughtful discussion of the following:How did you prepare for the interview? Be sure to list the questions used in your interview and provide a brief summary of the content of your interview.How long was the interview?  How much effort was required to keep the interview to the required 10-20 minute timeframe?What things made the interview difficult or uncomfortable? Be as specific as possible.  For example, were there things you or your client said or did during the interview that were uncomfortable? What factors made the interview welcoming and comfortable?  Again be as specific as possible.Did you think you were effective in probing and obtaining information?As appropriate, cite the online content, the textbook, and other credible, scholarly sources to substantiate the points you are making.Apply APA standards for writing and citations to your work.

## Differnt questions

1. What is the monoamine theory of depression? What evidence supports this hypothesis as a cause of affective disorder? It generally takes 2-3 weeks of chronic treatment before an antidepressant begins to have a clinical benefit, yet the drug’s pharmacological effect (for example, its inhibition of MOA, or reuptake) is immediate. What synaptic mechanisms may underlie this time lag?

2. Critically evaluate the roles of the lateral hypothalamus and ventromedial hypothalamus in hunger and satiety. What other brain sites are known to be involved in eating behavior? How can this be explained in terms of a homeostatic model? What evidence shows that non- homeostatic mechanisms also contribute to feeding?

3. Describe the brain structures and anatomical pathways that make up the extrapyramidal and pyramidal motor systems. What are the main functions of these two systems? What regions in the cerebral cortex are known to be involved in movement? How do these areas contribute to the production of motor behavior?

4. How is the brain capable of “seeing” a spectrum of fine color when the eye contains only three different types of color detectors? What evidence supports the existence of dorsal (“where is it?”) and ventral (“what is it?”) visual systems in the cerebral cortex?

5. Describe the main structures of the brain stem, the midbrain, and forebrain, including the basal ganglia, the limbic system and the cerebral cortex. What functions and behaviors are these regions known to control?
