The aim of this blog is to share research week by week with students on the AQA Psychology course. I come across new research most days which is relevant to the topics we study at DHSB. Taking some time to provide a link to it and then to offer some commentary relating it to how we currently think about this topic seems like a good idea. When I started, I aimed to post a blog entry every week and am aimed to include five pieces of research every week. I’m pleased to have got this far and hope to keep going.
