If we are to compare the the results of the experiement we are likely to find: a) For both experiments, the reaction speed is faster when the target appears in the cued location* b) For Experiment B, the reaction speed is faster when the target appears in the cued location versus Experiment A when the reaction speed is less when the target appears in the cued location. c) For Experiment A, the reaction speed is faster when the target appears in the cued location versus Experiment B when the reaction speed is less when the target appears in the cued location. d) None of the Above 6. Ryan has to take 3 hours to get ready for work at the Mall, because he has to count all his socks in his drawers, all the shirts in the closet and has to comb his hair several times inbetween each action.

The Cognitive Psychologist would approach this by: a) looking at the voices in his head using Psychoanalysis b) giving Jordan pills to correct the neurological damage in the neurons at the frontal lobe in the brain c) making Jordan think positively to the situations he is in as the source of the problem is how Jordan percieves what happens to him d) looking at Jordans behaviour as the seed of the problem and seeming to correct this using CBT 9. Antabuse is a drug sometimes used to treat alcoholism. However Antabuse has severe side effects that lead to nausea and migranes. Through a classical conditoned experiment, the participant starts to feel severe migranes just at the site of alcohol.
