  • 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 literature review research suggested that encoding and retrieval of information depends heavily on the type of strategy being use by individuals. There are different types of processing strategies. However, this paper will exclusively focus on shallow…

  • Learning A Second Language Case Study

    translation priming studies utilizing vocabulary from two languages offer an informative perspective into these processing systems of second language in the mind of a bilingual or a second language learner. The findings in this type of research provide important insights to help implement teaching methods and facilitate learning as more students are expected to learn a second language as part of their required curriculum, and as more children…

  • Bock And Levelt's Model Of Speech Language Processing

    There are many computational speech production models regarding serial language processing. In these models the stages are independent and information flow is unidirectional/top-down – lemma level processes feed lexeme level processes, but not the other way around. One of the most widely known and discussed speech production models was proposed by Bock & Levelt (1994). This model presented four distinct stages of processing. The process begins at the conceptual stage, a message-level…

  • Race Disparities In The Juvenile Justice System

    discussion. This caused a number of questions to arise regarding the affect race has in juvenile justice decision making.

  • Mozart Effect Essay

    Creativity and abstract processing are beneficial traits to subjects in the arts and humanities based on the level of creative analysis that is needed in both. In one study, there appeared to be no significant change in these skills among low and moderate ambient noise levels. When noise levels were high, however, specific tasks in creative thinking were disregarded after a short while, indicative of reduced information processing, translating to a reduced cognitive carrying capacity (Mehta et.…

  • Emotion In David A. Sousa's Mind, Brain, Education

    don’t give enough emphasizes on the effect that emotion has on how well we can learn. Students often find themselves frustrated on the fact that they are unable to learn a certain subject, but they never stop to think why that is. In most situations it had to do with the attitude or maybe a negative emotion they might be feeling. According to David A. Sousa’s “Mind, Brain, Education,” we develop nonconsicious emotional reaction to certain scenarios (73). For instance, take a scenario where a…

  • Disparities In Language Acquisition

    both language processing skills and vocabulary knowledge between infants from rich and poor families were equivalent to a six-month gap by 2 years of age? In other words, would you believe somebody if they were to tell you that, starting at a very young age, children from families of high economic status have proven to be more intellectually advanced than children from lower-class families? Most people would not. While many argue that neither economic status nor social class has an effect on…

  • Decision-Making Vs Intuitive Decision Making

    heuristics that accompany mental processing, thought, and ability to assess a situation. However, how can we examine the effects of decision-making when we skip the analyzing process – rather, how can we judge the effectiveness of following our gut in quick decisions? “Heuristics is the unconscious, or quick decisions that humans make due to integrated social norms, or mental short-cuts” (Pearl, Judea, 1983, p. 48). The use of heuristics in decision-making is often regarded as the foolish or…

  • Pigeon Pea Essay

    Possible approaches are: breeding of varieties low in these oligosaccharides, use of enzymes to reduce the oligosaccharide content (Reynolds, 1974) and soaking or germinating the seeds before cooking (Iyer et al.,1980; Jood et al., 1985). Traditional processing practices have been followed for many years to convert grain legumes in to the more acceptable forms. Such processes not only improve the digestibility and palatability of legumes but also help to remove some anti-nutritional factors.…

  • The Importance Of Sensory Processing

    Sensory processing is the ability to neurologically organize information our body picks up from the environment around us. Sensory information is received from the peripheral nervous system, which consist of sensations from the skin, muscles and our senses, which then transmitted to the brain. The information is then integrated and the individual has an adaptive response. An individual is composed of eight senses, which are tactile, olfactory, gustatory, visual, auditory, vestibular,…
