Question description

The goal of this discussion forum is to enhance your understanding of memory phenomena. For your initial post, complete the following steps:

  • Watch the following video: How Does Your Memory Work?
  • Go to the Coglab to experience one of the procedures/tasks that scientists have used to investigate attention and its different manifestations.
  • Select one of the following experiments:
    • Serial Position (i.e., how memory for a list depends on items’ positions within the list)
    • Implicit Learning (i.e., how learning occurs without awareness)
    • Suffix Effect (i.e., how adding an irrelevant item to the end of a list affects recall of the final items).

Keep in mind that each experiment illustrates a procedure/task that is used by scientists to understand how long-term memory functions.  Read the section of the textbook devoted to the selected experiment. Then, consider what participants’ performance on the corresponding task tells you about long-term memory and its strengths and weaknesses.  Also, consider the extent to which the results of the selected experiment apply to real-life experiences and settings.  Support your points with evidence from at least one peer-reviewed research article.  Your initial post must be a minimum of 300 words.
