Question:

Is it better to study in intervals or through "cramming"?

Inactive
Jenna W.
Answer:

Psychologically, it has been shown that interval studying, or studying in short bursts for longer periods of time, is better for long-term knowledge. While "cramming" before an exam can be helpful, it is better to spread information out to give your brain time to process.

Question:

How do the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems play a role in stress?

Answer:

When an individual experiences a stressor, their sympathetic nervous system creates the "fight, flight, or freeze" response. This includes reactions such as dilated pupils, sweaty palms, increased heart rate, opening of the airways, etc. so the individual can respond quickly to the stressor. After the stressor has passed, the parasympathetic nervous system attempts to return the body to homeostasis by slowing the heart rate, slowing breathing, continuing digestion, etc. While the sympathetic nervous system "hypes the bodily systems up", the parasympathetic "calms it down".

Question:

What is an intersectionality approach, and how can this be applied to the research field of gender studies?

Inactive

Answer:

Intersectionality is looking at one's identity through a multi-faceted lens. For example, instead of looking only at gender, intersectionality would look at how race, gender, socioeconomic status, and other aspects of identity come together to form the person. In the field of gender studies, research needs to acknowledge that "gender" means different things to different people depending on the other aspects of their identity. This can influence ones' view and experience with gender.
