Could you assist with the following posts? I will need them by today at 8 pm EST.
A. Discussion Question (Icons – Answer at least 150 words and peer reviewed reference) Chapter
I thought that I would jump right in on this
"prompt" and support the initiation of a discussion on this
topic. In our text (Galotti 2014) writes that "The icon is a sensory
memory storage system for visual material, holding information for up to about
1 second" (p. 102).
Okay, now that the definition is provided - how does this
come into play in our daily lives?
Conduct a little experiment. Stop what you are
doing at some point during the day - and slowly turn in a circle. After
making a full revolution sit down some place safe and close your eyes.
After doing this share what occurred - and tie our
reading material into how this sensory process involved memory!

B. Discussion question:
As discussed in the readings assignment for this week,
sensory memory is a general term used to refer to sensory buffers that can
retain a large amount of memory, but only for a short period of time. One type
of sensory memory is iconic memory. Can you think of a time when you used
iconic memory? If so, how did you use it? (Sensory Memory Discussion 150 words and peer reviewed reference)
Discussion question: Forgetting
can occur as the result of many different types of actions—for example, you may
not have the correct cue for retrieval—but there are some individuals that
would argue that forgetting is an intentional act and that, in order to forget
something, one must make a conscious effort to do so. Do you support this
reasoning? Why or why not?

Question: (150 words and 1 peer reviewed
reference to support answer)
I would like to bring up an important idea regarding the
role that emotions play in memory encoding.
I respectfully disagree with implicit understanding
regarding the role our main text author (Galotti 2014) places on emotions and
memory. Specifically the lack of linking emotions to memories themselves.
Life had taught me, and clinically, thousands of hours of
sitting with folks have taught me, that emotions have a rather large effect on
Personality type (for the curious navigate tohttp://humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp)
also plays a critical role. Take five minutes and share what your type is
with us! You may find that it has a direct impact on how each of us
processes emotional content!
For example - If I fall in love, don't I 'obsess' over the
object that I have fallen in love with?
As a result, won't I 'think' about that thing over and over
and...you get the point.
There is a whole lot of thinking (cognition) going on over
certain things - perhaps due to it being emotionally charged - than over other
Any thoughts? - This is a psycho-active section (will stir
things up) and I look forward to your responses.

E. Discussion: (150 words and 1 peer review reference)
Emotions and Memory
Reflect and discuss our
text and ERR reading material regarding the role that emotion plays regarding
Do you agree with the material regarding emotional memories?
For example - can you remember what you were doing when catastrophes
occurred (for example, the terrorist attacks on the United States on
September 11, the Challenger disaster, assassination of John F. Kennedy, or
even local disasters)?
Using our main text, and/or ERR readings what does our course
material have to say about this specific type of memory?
