  • Three Main Reasons For Memory Loss Of Memory Retrieval

    There are five main reasons for memory retrieval failure: cue-depending forgetting, state-dependent learning, interference, transfer of training, and repression/suppression. To define these briefly, cue-dependent forgetting requires some sort of retrieval cue to be able to remember the information. State-dependent learning means that you must be in the same state in order to remember. Interference can have retroactive interference (new information causes you to forget the older information) and proactive interference (learning too many things at once can cause them to be forgotten). Transfer of training can also be divided into two categories: positive transfer (learning an older task helps in a new task) and negative transfer (learning an older task makes it more difficult to remember a new task). Finally, a failure to retrieve information can be caused by an involuntary, motivated forgetting of something traumatic (repression) or a voluntary, conscious forgetting…

  • Rhetorical Analysis For The Ubyssey

    your textbook two or three time before an exam is an effective studying process, you have no idea how far from the truth that is. If you think last minute cramming will improve your test scores, let me advise you that you 're better off getting a quick bite to eat on your way to class, than trying to desperately memorize the derivative of arctan. In addition to that, to those who attend all classes, pay attention and take notes, and review them before tests will be upset to hear that, firstly,…

  • Assignment 2: Flashbulb Memory

    ASSIGNMENT 2: MEMORY (1) Explain what each of the following terms means: (a) Consistency bias, (b) retroactive interference, (c) proactive interference. 1a: Consistency bias means that people tend to exaggerate the consistency between our past feelings or beliefs with our current viewpoint. 1b: Retroactive interference means that people have trouble recalling old material because of recently learned material interfering with old memories. 1c: Proactive interference means that people have…

  • Memory Interference

    Interference and the Similarity of Information Introduction Memory can be defined as the brain’s ability to encode, store and retrieve information. At times, the retrieval process can be completed unproductively, this occurrence is referred to as forgetting. Forgetting is the inability to retrieve certain information that is stored in memory (Grivas, 2014). An individual’s ability to recall information can be affected by a number of factors. Some research, such as the studies of Muller and…

  • Carbon Dioxide Emissions And Global Warming

    The siRNA is essential to trigger the RNAi mechanism within the cell to down regulate UPB1 in the seedling cells. To deliver the siRNA to seedling cells, a nanosecond pulsed laser-induced stress wave will be used.15 This tool ensures efficient and safe delivery of double stranded RNA into the cells of Malus domestica without damaging the tissue. After siRNA enters the plant seedling cell, the RNAi mechanism will be initiated. RNA interference (RNAi) is a natural mechanism of intracellular immune…

  • Biochemistry Personal Statement

    Biochemistry is the “structure and function” within living organisms through chemical processes (Revier). Being able to master the subject is a driven force that grasped my attention to continue pursuing my academics through this major. My interest for the subject grew as I conducted further research to determine the benefits of having a degree in biochemistry and how it would aid me in the long runs by having a successful future. Simultaneously, I enrolled in an Introduction to Biochemistry…

  • Automatic Processing: The Stroop Effect

    but not the actual word (See figure 1). According to Stroop, “it demonstrates the interference of working memory and the reaction time of a task, often used to illustrate the nature of automatic processing versus conscious visual control” (Stroop, 1935). John Stroop first published his findings in 1935 based on 3 experimental research theories (See figure 2). His first theory compared reading a list of words in black ink while reading the same list of words in different colors. The results…

  • Quantum Leap Analysis

    the electron and the atom. The electron was a particle and a wave. The experiment above was originally to test the wave-particle duality of light, but is applicable to so many other situations. In our case, electrons would be fired forward toward the wall with the slits, and hit the screen behind this wall. At face value, the electron is a particle. It has mass, however small, and (as far as we know) is a perceptible object. Unlike a wave, it does not require a medium to move through…

  • Values And Values Of Science

    The tools of science are not the apparati with which science is executed, such as scales and telescopes, nor the theories science generates to explain things, though both are useful instruments in their own right. I refer instead to the habitual processes which science relies upon. The most prominent tool is the scientific method which serves to direct one 's inquiry. Other useful tools include gathering data, controlling for variables, and repeating experiments. When I talk about the values of…

  • Rhetorical Strategies Of Carl Sagan

    Shermer explains that there is an amateur archeologist who studied how the pyramids were built. He couldn’t explain how they were made because he had no evidence. He believed they were constructed by space aliens. Sagan believes there’s a dragon in his garage, but can’t explain if it’s actually there because he has no real evidence to show that there’s an actual dragon in his garage. He then experiments his theory, according to Sagan the dragon is invisible. In his experiment he spreads flour…
