For the first time, patients in persistently vegetative states have been able to give answers clinically relevant to their care. It was fascinating and really moving programme, showing that some patients can answer yes/no questions by imagining particular scenarios – such as playing tennis. This thought process stimulates certain brain activity which can be detected and analysed in scans.

Another fantastic ATP conference was enjoyed by all at Aston University this year – a big thanks to the hard-working team of organisers and congratulations again to all involved with ATP on celebrating the 30th anniversary of providing top-notch support for Psychology teachers.
It was a real pleasure to meet so many enthusiastic teachers, tutors and lecturers. We were rushed off our feet but managed to find the time to take a few snaps over the weekend – please click the link below to take a look at our photos. We look forward to seeing you again next year when the ATP Conference will be held at Keele University.
We’ve been celebrating the recent release of the 3rd edition of the AS AQA Complete Companions Student Book written by Mike Cardwell and Cara Flanagan, and The Research Methods Companion written by Cara Flanagan.

Some recent research reported here suggests the fMRI studies may present a misleading picture of brain activity. Such studies are used to provide evidence that certain areas of the brain are active when a person is engaged in a target task. However the new research has demonstrated that, while certain areas may be especially active, it isn’tt a question of them being the only active areas – they are simply more active than the rest of the brain. This means that conclusions that link a specific area of the brain to a specific behaviour may be unjustified, because many other areas are also involved.
I’ve just heard that there are some Limited Edition AQA Complete Companion Revision Packs for AS Psychology coming out later this month, I thought I’d let you all know so you can snap them up! The pack is £15.00 and will include a copy of the AS Exam Companion and the AS Mini Companion (a saving of approx. £6.00 if the books are purchased individually). If you’d like me to order you some before they are relased please email me at email@example.com - alternatively they will be available on Amazon (ISBN 978 019 912996 6).
