Question and answer
why do psychologist study the brain and the nervous system?
This will make the psychologist aware of the normal activity of the brain and nervous system in comparing with how a person behaves. [ Irregularities on the brain and nervous system would also allow them to make decisions why such behavior is arising on their patients. ]

what might be the advantage and disadvantage of using naturalistic observation
Weegy: Read following , in which you will come across adv. and disadv. [ of Naturalistic Observation. *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. ] (More)

when conducting research what are some of the ethical concerns that must be addressed
Weegy: There are many ethical issues to be taken into serious consideration for research. Sociologists need to be aware of having the responsibility to secure the actual permission and interests of all those involved in the study. [ They should not misuse any of the information discovered, and there should be a certain moral responsibility maintained towards the participants. There is a duty to protect the rights of people in the study as well as their privacy and sensitivity. The confidentiality of those involved in the observation must be carried out, keeping their anonymity and privacy secure. ] (More)
