Looking at the OCR site this morning I was pleased to see that the new 2008 specification for Psychology has finally been approved. The biggest shock of it all is that Zimbardo has been dropped and replaced by Reicher & Haslam (2006) Rethinking the psychology of tyranny [full text available here].
Other changes to the AS are that Gardner & Gardner has been replaced with Savage-Rumbaugh. Other than that it’s very similar to the draft proposal with Maguire, Griffiths and the more recent Baron-Cohen study being brought through.
I’m just reading through the specs now so expect a more in-depth post about the changes (and I will have to hunt down even more studies). Plenty to keep you going for the moment though over at the OCR site.
Update: added link to the full text R&H study.
