Memory

...Successful retrieval of a memory depends largely on the cues available at the time of retrieval. But sometimes, when cues will not help; the memory is simply lost.

Echoic Memory

...You respond by asking, “What did you say? Oh, 8:45.” You did not necessarily hear the question until after asking. This means that even though your focus was not initially on what your friend was saying to you, when you did eventually turn your attention toward them, you knew what was said. Research has shown that our echoic memory increases with age and also declines after adulthood. That means that a toddler’s echoic memory is not nearly as advanced as a teenager’s, but also means that...

Reconstructive Memory

...They often retain a large amount of LTM for events up until the point of brain damage and maintain their procedural memories. Despite the fact that they are incapable of gaining new long-term declarative memory for semantic or episodic information, most are able to learn new procedural skills. Research by Baddely and Warrington (1970) shows that if these people are given free recall experiments they show good recency effects, but poor primacy effects. This research provides support for the Atki...

Philosophy - Is Memory Reliable

...For example, I decide to cross the road without looking both ways because I cannot be sure that being hit by a car would kill me. I might have seen and heard of people being killed by cars in the past, but if I doubt my own memory how could I be sure that speeding cars have the potential to actually kill people. Because of this seemingly correct logic I might then be hit by a car and become a victim of what many would say is clear common sense. So although there is no good way to prove the relia...

Besides that, I believe...

A Memory For All Seasonings

...Ericsson and Poison have also tested him with animals, units of time, flowers, and metals. At first, his recall was slow and uncertain. But with relatively little practice, he could retrieve these "orders" almost as quickly as he could food. "The difference between someone like John, who has a trained memory, and the average person," says Ericsson, "is that he can encode material in his memory fast and effortlessly. It's similar to the way you can understand English when you hear it spoken. In o...

An Accident from My Memory

As I sat still in the car I thought about how I would die, would it be in the hospital or would it be a simple death. At that moment my thoughts were not very positive and all that went through my mind was one question. Would I live or die? But ...

False Memory & Eyewitness Testimony

...The justice system clearly needs to catch up with science and demand physical evidence be present to convict. In the Book of Genesis when God was going to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah, Abraham interceded and said to God, “Will You consume the righteous with the wicked? What if there are fifty righteous who are in it?... What if ten are found there? ” The Lord said, “I will not destroy it for the sake of ten”.

“Loneliness” and the Power of Memory

...It is clear that Cortes parallels the harvest of apples with the harvest of life. Both have definite beginnings and endings, and both are renewed. Seasons replenish the harvest as memory revives the past. This is the source of hope the man holds on to.
