    There is a rudimentary notion that memory can store an exact copy of information like a video camera and it could be easily and precisely recalled at a persons will. Cortical processes could distort memory as the cortical network that capitalizes on such contextual information is suggested to connect the portrayal of related objects such that visually perceiving an object will activate the visual representations of related objects. For example when one sees a fork they would link it…

    Introduction Attention is a complicated concept that refers to what information in our environment is processed. According to many psychologists, objects in the world are only processed if our attention is focused there, meaning many objects can be missed. One phenomenon that explains why we ‘miss’ certain objects is due to inattentional blindness. Inattentional blindness is where attention is focused on a certain task and unexpected objects that appear in our visual field may not be noticed…

As prevalence of AD increases along with the cost of healthcare, new…

    character sets and distractor tasks having lower recall rates, however, they were not sufficient enough to prove that the results happened by chance. Current research by Chiu & Egner (2015) show that the results indicated that switching tasks, reduce memory for distractors, and that when presented with focusing on the distractor tasks reduces encoding the previous information. Although, the results to the current study correspond with the findings of Gronau, Cohen, & Ben-Shakhar (2009). The…

    development of a human brain has been a strong topic to research. A study headed by Gregory Clemenson and Craig Stark in 2015 attempted to see how video games and hippocampal associated memory work together. The part of the brain that this study refers to mainly is through associations of the hippocampus and memory. Clemenson and Stark (2015) attempted to look at ways to alleviate hippocampal cognitive deficits through sensory stimulations. They based their study from research done by Van…

    learning and memory processes. Indeed, induction of LTP is observed coincidently with learning events in the hippocampus of free-moving animals and this learning-induced LTP occludes subsequent electrical induction of LTP in the hippocampus (Whitlock et al., 2006). Conversely, saturation of LTP in the hippocampus interferes with spatial memory formation (Barnes et al., 1994). A recent work demonstrates that in vivo artificial induction of LTD impaired recall of the associative memory while…
