During a dichotic listening task, participants cannot remember information that they were not asked to focus on because it is effectively “dumped out” before it can be stored in working memory due to its irrelevance. On the reverse, during a cocktail party (or other event in which the brain must navigate multiple sources of information) irrelevant information is constantly being input and exported, however, particular stimuli are able to catch the attention of the guest because they signal potentially important information (for example, hearing one’s own name…

While the décor will not “scream” Mexican, with sombreros and the typical décor found at most Mexican restaurants, it will be obvious to the diner that the establishment is a Mexican restaurant.

    Media has control over our minds. Advertisers, movies, television shows, and magazines feed people’s minds with a false and perverted (“to change [something good] so that it is no longer what it was or should be” (Webster) view on body image for both men and women. Media uses tools such as Photoshop to change the model into a so-called perfect human form, which is usually unnatural and unachievable by the average person.
