Question and answer
what role do neurotransmitters play in psychological functioning?
Information is carried by biochemical substances called neurotransmitters, which we will talk about in more detail shortly. [ The terminal buttons and the dendrites of other neurons do not touch, but instead pass the information containing neurotransmitters through a Synapse. Once the neurotransmitter leaves the axon, and passes through the synapse, it is caught on the dendrite by what are
termed Receptor Sites. ]

What might be the advantages of using naturalistic observation?
Weegy: *Naturalistic observation is a method of observation, commonly used by psychologists and social/behavioral scientists, that involves observing subjects in their natural habitats. [ Researchers take great care in avoiding making interferences with the behaviour they are observing by using unobtrusive methods. *Naturalistic observation occurs when a scientist conducts observations in a naturally occurring situation, without becoming actively involved. In conducting naturalistic observations, a scientist makes no attempt to control or change what happens. The research task is to make a detailed record of the events that occur and of apparent relationships between events, without having any effect on their occurrence. Clearly the challenge in conducting naturalistic observation is to arrange the data collection so that the observer has a clear view of what occurs, but is not so prominent or noticeable that they become an object of interest or concern to participants. The first stage of many programs of research in psychology as well as other sciences is naturalistic observation. Such observations give an initial sense of the key variables and critical relationships which can be studied later in a more rigorous way with tighter controls. *Naturalistic Observation: Identifies and measures the behavior of people or animals as it occurs in their everyday lives. The behavior may be measured as it occurs or others could already have recorded it, or it may be coded on videotape to be coded at a later time. Can produce a rich and complex data set. Observation of a Behavior in a naturalistic setting over an extended period of time (a variety of methods are often used). Primarily qualitative rather than quantitative. Has ECOLOGICAL VALIDITY (occurs in situations that are similar [or identical] to the everyday life experiences of the participants [ minimizes reactivity ] Observational Research Involves making observations of behavior and recording those ...

You have decided to use the case study method to investigate a mother’s experience in raising a child with autism. What is a disadvantage of the case study method?
Weegy: The ADVANTAGE of using a case study method is that..It is REAL life,it's what's happening out there day to day in the lives of parents caring for children with autism.This can give you a far better insight into true facts. Perhaps the DISADVANTAGES [ of the case study method would be that very often you are limited to the case study facts as opposed to the wider range of facts that often surround this study,even including the rarer statistics and facts that you would find in a more 'text-book' case study. ] (More)

What is an advantage of the case study method?
Weegy: A case study is an in-depth investigation of one participant. The advantages of case study methods are that they provide a great amount of description and detail about a particular case. This helps to set the groundwork for future studies. [ Another advantage can be to offer more opportunities for the researchers that they would not have otherwise. ] (More)
