Discussion: Memory

Explaining Memory

STEP 1: In the discussion, write a post responding to both of the following prompts:

  1. Think of something you’ve learned so far in this course. Use one of the mnemonics or memory tricks you learned about in this module to help you remember a psychological concept. Explain your memory aid in a sentence or two.
  2. In at least 100 words, describe one of your earliest childhood memories and explain it in the context of what you learned in this module. How was it encoded, stored, and retrieved, and has it fallen prey to any memory failure?

STEP 2: Thoughtfully respond to a minimum of TWO other posts in at least 75 words.
