  • Working Memory Abilities

    There has been different research that proposed to explain how working memory capacity and different processing strategies enhance or interfere with memory performance. Although the literature cover different research, this review will focus in encoding and retrieval process of information, and the importance of working memory capacity. There is an important relation between individual differences in Working Memory Capacity (WMC) and retrieving information from long-term memory (LTM). In this…

  • Organic Chemistry

    This semester, I’m in a course entitled Principles of Chemistry I. Currently, I need to learn and store trends of the periodic table. One particularly hard area is electron affinity and ionization energy trends. Electron affinity is how willing an element is to gain an electron, and ionization energy is how willing the element is to lose an electron. Remembering which direction each of those two trends go on the periodic table has been difficult for me. I’m trying to store this information in my…

  • Essay The Space Of Memory: In An Archive By Carolyn Steedman

    Creative Histories Presentation History is a narrative of human experience, written retrospectively. There is a process of evaluation and reflection that colours, interprets and reshapes events into patterns of memory that can be selective and distinctly individual. Authenticity and verifiable details make history a more reliable ‘story’ of human experience through the additional use of personal memories. Memory is fragile, often short term and highly subjective. The mind’s impact on memory can…

  • Compare And Contrast Short Term Memory And Shallow Processing

    Two cognitive processes that contrast but also compare would be Deep Processing and Shallow processing. Deep processing is basically determined to result in long term memory, as Shallow processing is most likely to end up as short term memory. Deep processing uses semantics to create an understanding and a storage of memory. You will more likely remember something that you deep processed, hence you figured out meaning, purpose, etc. Shallow processing is not as durable as deep processing because…

  • Summary Of Stream Of Consciousness In James Joyce's Ulysses

    INTRODUCTION “We are what we remember. If we lose our memory, we lose our identity and our identity is the accumulation of our experiences. When we walk down the memory lane, it can be unconsciously, willingly, selectively, impetuously or sometimes grudgingly. By following our stream of consciousness we look for lost time and things past. Some reminiscences become anchor points that can take another scope with the wisdom of hindsight. ("Walking down the memory lane")”…

  • The Multi-Store Model Of Memory

    Many think of their memory as a fairly simple thing, they either have a good or bad memory. Psychologists however categorize memory into into different types of memory, based on the information stored and how long it is stored. These different types of memory are held in 'stores', consisting of the sensory, short-term and long-term memory. The multi-store model of memory was proposed by Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968. The first store of memory is the sensory memory. This 'store' of memory is the…

  • Classical Vs Operant Conditioning

    1. There are many different ways humans and organisms learn. According to Feldman, R. S., (1989), learning is defined as, “a relatively permanent change in behavior that is brought about by experience.” The two types of learning principles we will be discussing are classical conditioning and operant conditioning. A Russian physiologist named Ivan Pavlov discovered classical conditioning. Classical conditioning “is a type of learning in which a neutral stimulus comes to elicit a response after…

  • Stroop Effect

    The aim of this research study is to test the Stroop effect. The Stroop effect was first stablished by J. Ridley Stroop when he discovered a phenomenon in which people had a little difficulty when naming the color of the word. The “Speed of Processing” model states that the reading response occurs faster than the color-naming response, arguing that at the moment of receiving a task involving color-naming, the word stimuli receives the response before the word stimuli, leading to disorientation.…
