hey hi hello

i'm just a senior trying to survive my ap tests and writing out notes is really helpful.

* ap biology index
* ap psychology index

☆ sorry everyone, i won't be updating anymore!! i hope you can make use of the information already here, but... there isn't going to be anything new. after finishing all my AP tests in 2012, i can't really bring myself to put any more work into this thing.

☆ never fear, though!! as exam season draws closer, there will be a definite increase in panicked students creating study blogs trying not to forget anything, so you won't be alone!
just check the tumblr tags for your respective exams.

☆ do your best!!

harry harlow & contact comfort

Developmental psychologists in the 1940s - 1950s believed that infants became attached to those who provided them with nourishment - a widely-held theory that ignored the role of physical contact. 

Harry Harlow took gave orphaned baby monkeys two artificial ‘mothers’ - one was wire and provided milk, the other was covered in soft cloth but provided no milk. 

  • when faced with a frightening stimuli, the monkeys clung to the cloth mother even though the wire mother was the one offering nourishment. 

Harlow concluded that the stimulation/reassurance from the physical touch of a parent plays a key role in developing healthy physical growth and normal socialisation.
