    Autobiographical Psychosocial History Weston Carpenter Mrs. Owen 5/1/17   Child Development Growing up mischievous kids are very common to say the least. No one taught them to be like this it was as if it was just in their nature. Its been discovered that there are 3 philosophical views on child development. They are Original Sin, Tubula Rasa, and Innate goodness. The original sin theory states that all children are born with the desire to sin due to Adam and Eve’s sin in the Garden of Eden. So this

  • Catalase on Hydrogen Peroxide Essay

    3702 Words  | 15 Pages

    Planning I will be studying the rate of catalase activity on hydrogen peroxide while varying the amount of inhibition, which should influence the rate of the reaction, and thus the amount of oxygen, observed in a given time. The concentration of the inhibitor will therefore be the independent variable, while the amount of oxygen will be the dependent variable.

  • Inhibitory Regression Analysis

    Inhibitory control appears to be composed of a series of cogs, all contributing to the vast entity collectively understood to comprise inhibition, a construct deceptive in its shroud of artificial simplicity. Not all report impaired judgement across the lifespan, nor do they collectively perform below par on all aspects of inhibitory control. Functioning on verbal memory tasks, for example, systematically appears viable for older adults (i.e., Aslan et al., 2007; Sego et al., 2006; examples of impaired

  • The Encoding of Contextual Fear Conditioning

    1296 Words  | 5 Pages

    The formation of new memories requires protein synthesis dependent changes in synaptic structure and plasticity in the hippocampus. Studies in humans and animals suggest that these memories are initially stored in hippocampus but later transferred to cortex for permanent storage. This phenomenon is described as systems consolidation of memories. While the specific role for new protein synthesis in hippocampus in early encoding of memories is established, whether protein synthesis in medial prefrontal

  • The Theory of Reconsolidation

    (Schiller et al, 2010; Tronson & Taylor, 2007). Memories from past experiences shape the people that we are today. A crucial element to learning is memory, without it we would not be able to retain information. The process of memory is very distinct and consists of several different stages: acquisition of memory, consolidation, retrieval and then either reconsolidation or extinction (Debiec & Ledoux, 2004; Diergaarde, Schoffelmeer & De Vries, 2008). As memory is such a critical aspect of learning, it is

    training. Mice infused with anisomycin (n= 12) immediately after conditioning showed impairment in contextual fear memory compared with vehicle-infused animals (saline, n=18) when tested 24 hours after CFC training (DF=28, F=7.19, t-test: p< 0.05) (Figure 2A). Surprisingly, irrespective of the overall decrease in freezing percentage, mice injected with anisomycin did not show any statistical difference in the level of freezing within the first 2 minutes of the test (Figure 2B). By the third minute

  • Cognitive Framework

    Figure 3. A general cognitive framework of the memory, and attention in the brain. Figure 3 consists of five main parts including the SR, encoding, STM, WM, and LTM. In the following, each of them is briefly described. SR retains a quite accurate and the whole of the information, such as visual, auditory, tactile, taste, and olfactory, that is sensed and attended to. It is characterized by being outside of conscious control and occurs automatically. These steps include extracting and identifying

  • Global Sleep Cycle

    1757 Words  | 8 Pages

    During states of arousal and wakefulness, information is encoded in the neocortical and hippocampal networks in the form of memories (Frankland et al., 2005). The networks that are activated during wakefulness are subsequently reactivated during SWS via SWA, which leads to synaptic downscaling and memory consolidation. A study conducted by Peigneux and colleagues (2004) provided evidence that presents a positive association between improvement in post-sleep retrieval

  • Experimental Psychology: The Stroop Effect

    529 Words  | 3 Pages

    The Stroop Effect is a popular phenomenon used throughout experimental psychology. It detects interference and inhibition by having participants’ naming at the color ink presented on paper or index cards and not being conflicted by other stimulations such as the written word. It is measured by the delay in response time. J. Ridley Stroop (1935) designed the original Stroop test using multiple experiments. He discovered in his second experiment that it took participants longer to name the color

    more quickly. MCI adults can regain cognitive function by exercising, eating healthy, reducing cholesterol intake, and by working the memory by practicing challenging cognitive tasks. Working memory is a system that underpins cognitive activities ranging from attention to a specific stimulus
