MCAT Psychology

Fun fact: after biology, psychology is the most frequently tested subject on the MCAT. Are you prepared?

Product: BsStudy::Category (id: 15738)

Psychology has an interesting place in MCAT prep. It’s often viewed as easier than, say, organic chemistry. But it’s also an incredibly wide area of study, and it’s tough to know what the MCAT will and won’t test. Don’t spend hours delving into psych textbooks or panicking because you saw a term on a practice exam that wasn’t in your book set. Use Brainscape’s psych flashcards to study what you need, and not what you don’t.

These cards provide coverage of the full range of MCAT psych content, calibrated against the MCAT outline. From signal detection to James-Lange, from groupthink to negative reinforcement, this subject will help you build the content knowledge needed for a top score – faster than any other study method out there.

Now with over 100 flashcards on experimental design. We’ve got it all. Mediating vs. moderating variables. Types of experimental error. So many (almost too many? could that be?) questions about validity. Check it out today!

# Deck Name Num. of Cards
1

Sensation And Perception

From the parts of the eye and ear to top-down versus bottom-up processing, sensation and perception can be daunting. Use these cards to get those topics and more down.

85
2

Attention And Cognition

These cards will help you master attention, cognition, and language, from Piaget's stages to heuristics.

68
3

Consciousness

The stages of sleep and consciousness-altering drugs are relatively "memorization-based" MCAT concepts. These cards should make that memorization a breeze.

56
4

Memory

Memory (from its types to its dysfunctions) is tested a LOT on the MCAT. We've developed these cards to cover it thoroughly.

61
5

Emotion And Stress

You might think you have James-Lange versus Cannon-Bard down, but do you really? Use these cards to practice that and much more.

68
6

Biological Basis Of Behavior

These cards cover neurotransmitters, parts of the brain, reflexes, and the wide array of other biological concepts that form the basis for MCAT psychology.

80
7

Personality

This deck takes a very deep dive into the perspectives of personality, from trait theory to Freud and psychoanalytics. Use these cards to master this material inside and out.

34
8

Psychological Disorders

The memorization-heavy content of MCAT-relevant psych disorders is well-suited for flashcards. Use these cards to get this content down!

47
9

Group Psychology

From groupthink to group polarization and from deviance to socialization, this deck will help you master group-related psychology.

43
10

Motivation And Attitude

Whether you're feeling motivated to study or would rather stare blankly at the wall, this deck will cover the full scope of MCAT content regarding motivation and attitude.

40
11

Learning

Does learning about learning feel almost too meta for you, too? Anyway, this deck covers absolutely critical concepts, such as classical and operant conditioning.

59
12

Self Identity

"I study for the MCAT, therefore I am." Wait, that's not right. Anyway, use this deck to study aspects of identity from key concepts to developmental stages.

48
13

Experimental Design

Experimental design is perhaps the single most important topic in MCAT P/S. Use this deck to master types of variables, reliability and validity, relevant statistical concepts, and more.
