Each case study has given us a unique understanding of brain-functioning – outline specifically what each case has done to further our understanding

Studies like these can raise interesting question for further research

If there are enough similar cases then generalisations can start to be made

Very in depth, rich data can be achieved through a variety of research methods

Case studies are often longitudinal meaning that we can see changes in behaviour over time


As each case study is unique, this means that information gained about each of these cases can’t be generalised well to other cases

Researchers can sometimes become so close to participants in studies such as these that their accounts can become subjective

Such investigations are highly time consuming

It is possible that there are ethical implications for research studies such as these
