UPDATE: If you’re wanting the Spec 2008 studies see here.

Here I will try to collate all of the full text original articles for the 20 core studies in the AS course. If you know where I can find a publicly available copy of any of the missing ones please let me know. :)

Also, I am putting any PDF versions of the studies in the ‘Shared Files‘ box on the right so that you can download and print if you want them. Again, if you have one I don’t – please share.

This is a work in progress ;)

    Hopefully the Gould article is winging its way to me as we speak thanks to the British Library.

    I am teaching OCR for the first time and have given a test on dement and kleitman from the june 2008 paper. I’m not sure what marks to give for certain answers, even after looking at the mark scheme. could any examiners help by giving me some guidance: here are the answers i’m struggling with:10 Dement and Kleitman conducted a study on sleep and dreaming:
    (a) Outline one finding about dreaming from the study. [2]
    Any one from: dreaming takes place in REM more than in n-REM sleep. Eye patterns and content. Length of dream estimation. 2 marks
    Other appropriate answers 2 marks
    Partially correct answer 1 mark

    A finding about dreaming is the lengths of time people are in REM

    One factor about dreaming is that when a person is in REM, they are dreaming and their eyes seem to follow the action

    One finding about dreaming from the study by Dement and Kleitman is that there was a definite relationship between the amount of REM sleep and the content of the dream

    Dreaming mainly occurs during REM sleep

    REM (rapid eye movement) mostly occurred during dreaming and when they were in a deep sleep

    Dreaming only appeared to occur during rapid eye movement, not during non rapid eye movement

    They found that 80% of dreaming occurred during REM activity, whilst only 7% of dreaming occurred in non REM activity

    The type of REM movement is similar to and has a connection with what the person is dreaming for example horizontal REM may be from a dream of people throwing tomatoes at each other

    Participants were more likely to dream during REM activity

    That most dreams occur during the REM part of sleep
