    Hey, don’t forget to test your knowledge! I have free to download quizzes to go with these videos at, also free A3 posters for you to summarise your knowledge.

    If you have found psych boost useful in your studies, you can now help me in this project! you can support me in creating the best possible free Alevel psychology videos and resources, by sponsoring me on Patreon!

    Me so far: I’ve completed 140+ videos now, with everything you need to know in that section, it’s been two years of epic numbers of hours on powerpoint and audio sofware. But if you have seen my new bio-psych videos you may have noticed a jump in quality, to do this I’ve dropped down to part time teaching and spent 6 months learning to vector draw, animate and video edit in adobe. I’m hoping to re-do all A-level, then help GCSE students and then even uni level psych in this style. But I have realised if I want to do this multiyear project I’m going to need to reach out and see what happens.

    Patreon starts at $2 (£1.50ish) a month and am going to start making some goodies as perks!

    If you can’t afford, no worries! I made this for you, just keep revising and good luck 😀 ! – Nick

    PS do the quizzes, honestly testing yourself (active learning) is the best thing you can do for revision right now!

    So don't we have unity in our conscious awareness?

    Strange I usually suffer a fear of social interaction. Once I passed out due to exercise. When I woke up again I found I had no fear of speaking and interacting for a time.

    That was incredibely helpful! I'm currently studying Biology, Psychology and RS at A- Level and sitting my A- Level exams in a few months. I was contemplating Philosphy but at the moment i'm planning on studying Psychology At Uni of Nottingham or Warwick (still awaiting feedback)! I would love to hear more about your combined Philosophy and psychology degree as that sounds very intriguing! Thank you 🙂

    Great video on a topic I am very fascinated by, but I do have one little critique: grab some royalty-free music and slap it in the background haha the silence when you’re not talking is a little jarring. But otherwise, love the video man!

    As far as I could read about this subject, people with split brains do NOT report any feeling of split self. Their consciousness and mind are perceived as the same subject and unified individuality as before surgery.

    Although this study is so interesting, I think it might also be the worst thing you could actually do to a human. I don't know about severe epilepsy and what it does to you, but this should be the very, very last resort. Knowing some people had this done to them, essentially splitting their conciousness, makes me feel very weird.
