Despite exemplary study habits, Nathan is finding it difficult to focus and complete his readings. He finds that even after he reads a chapter in the text and goes over his own notes, minutes later, Nathan can’t even remember what he studied, let alone the details of the material. In sharp contrast, Nathan finds himself remembering the most insignificant things like the lyrics of songs that he has only heard once, strange parts of conversations that he wasn’t even paying attention to, and irrelevant facts from television shows that his roommate has been watching. This leads Nathan to an interesting question: How much control do you have in moving information through the various memory systems?
Keeping the above scenario in mind, use the information presented in this week's readings to answer the following questions:
With reference to the scenario in Discussion Question 1, use the information presented in this week's readings to answer the following questions:
For this question, please familiarize yourselves with the information presented in both the lecture and the text. A good place to start is in the Week-3 Lecture under the headings “Sensory, Short-Term, and Working Memory”. Be sure to read all four sections and pay particular attention to the Graphic boxes.
There are many separate issues that need to be addressed for this DQ, so be sure to attend to all of them. I would suggest that you copy the questions as a way to keep organized.
What is the duration and capacity of the sensory, short-term, and working memory systems?
Are there differences between the memory systems in the way they respond to the various sensory systems, focus on audition, and vision?
Can people alter the limits of their memory systems? Explain.
How can information about the different memory systems be applied to developing more effective human-computer interactions? Specifically discuss both visual and auditory information.
How can this information be used to develop an effective multimedia Web site?
Good luck on this and don’t forget to cite your sources. Please review my announcement on this if you need help.
