    Throughout the Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) section of our course, we learned that confabulation, the generation of false memories pronounced with strong feelings of rightness without the intention to deceive, is a symptom that can occur post brain injury. Confabulation as a symptom of brain injury has become a fascinating aspect to me in a couple different ways.

    The Cognitive Processes of Aging and Memory Casey Imelio Sitting with my grandfather just today, it was clear to me that since being at college I had not noticed how much he had aged within the last two years. He forgot minimal details, such as my major and what truck I drove (which for him is surprising). While at the time being enrolled in both a Gerontology course and this Perception and Cognition course it was cool to see how I could put these details together and get a better understanding…

Whereas addiction was once believed to be attributed to a lack of willpower, or flaws of character, much of the current understanding realizes it is a complex interplay between individual genetic, biological, developmental, and environmental characteristics (Koob & Volkow, 2009). The overreaching scope of this paper is to examine the connections between addiction and…

Can you be confident in your memories to stand up in a courtroom over 10 years later and demand that your memory is as clear and concise as it was when it was first created.
