Information Processing

Prior to beginning this discussion, please read and view the following required sources:

In your initial post, you will apply what you learned from each of the four articles, but for your initial posting, you will discuss the findings and implications for just one of these articles. Please see the list below to determine which of the articles you will focus on for your initial post based on the first letter of your last name:

  • N through V: Short-Term Memory and Long-Term Memory Are Still Different

In your initial post,

  • Explain the empirical research presented in your assigned article, applying appropriate citations and references.
  • Describe, in your own words, how the research relates to the information you learned in the article Information Processing.
  • Describe, in your own words, how the research relates to your own experiences as well as how this area of psychology may have affected your past or current beliefs about memory development. Do the research findings refute or support your current beliefs, and in what ways? Are there variables about how we process information of which you were unaware based on our resources?
  • Apply skeptical inquiry to the potential problems that might arise from research in the area of information processing, and relate it to the APAs Ethical Principles of Psychologists and Code of Conduct.

Your initial post should be at least 500 words in length.
