About me

I am a first year Psychology Student at the University of Exeter and have always been intrigued by human cognition and behaviour, this is reinforced by my passion for science and I hope that I can introduce this to you.

Having only recently have completed GCSE’s and A-Levels I am very familiar with the syllabus', revision methods and exam technique that examiners look for. Having tutored previously, from children as young as 5 to 18 I have experience in teaching am friendly and approachable.

Questions Nish has answered

Explain how mutations can be beneficial, neutral or have harmful effects on the way a protein functions;

Beneficial - The mutation changes the sequence of amino acids in a way that the phenotype expressed will give the organism an advantageous characteristics. For example, some mutations mean that bacteria are resilient to antibiotics, this means they will survive.

Neutral - This is when the mutation happens in a non-coding region of the DNA. We call it silent mutation because although the sequence of amino acids has changed, it will still code for the same protein having no effect.

Harmful - The mutation will change the sequence of amino acids and hence the phenotype ( the physical characteristic expressed) the resulting characteristic is then harmful for example, paler skin in a hot climate would burn more easily opposed to a phenotype for darker skin.

What is the self fulfilling prophecy?

Labelling and the self-fulfilling prophecy explains criminal and anti-social behaviour in terms of societal factors, specifically the way others behave towards you.

The self-fulfilling prophecy shows how a belief or expectation of a person/group whether correct or not, affects the way a person/group will behave.

The concept of labelling is crucial. Labelling is using a generic and broad term to describe members of a minority group. The labels use inferior terms and imply negative connotations. The term is linked with the concept of stereotyping, which is a generalised and simplified view of an individual or situation that is based on limited evidence. E.g. most criminals are working class.

Labelling someone a criminal and then treating that person as such may produce criminal behaviour in the person who is subjected to this expectation.

This is because they see themselves in terms of the criminal label. The person fulfils the criminal label and becomes what the label says – a criminal. The prophecy fulfils itself.
