  • Memory for emotional events: The accuracy of central and peripheral details. Lanciano, Tiziana; Curci, Antonietta // Europe's Journal of Psychology;May2011, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p323 

    The emotional intensity of an event is a significant predictor for vividness of event memory. Nevertheless, during the last few decades, there has been some confusion in literature as to whether emotional events are poorly or well retained. It is important to consider that not all details of...

  • Past and present interacting: A memory discourse in Robert Coover’s Gerald’s Party. Gruic-Grmusa, Lovorka // English Text Construction;2008, Vol. 1 Issue 2, p281 

    Past and present merge in the phenomenon that we call memory. Memory is a mode of re-presentation and belongs to the present — the act of remembering always being in and of the present, while its referent is of the past and thus absent.

  • Object-based representations facilitate memory for inhibitory processes. Paul, Matthew A.; Tipper, Steven P. // Experimental Brain Research;Feb2003, Vol. 148 Issue 3, p283 

    Previous work has shown that in a sequential cueing task, inhibition of the return of attention (IOR) can be observed for up to four or five loci. We have argued that the inhibition processes mediating IOR are associated with object-based representations, and it is object-based representations...

  • Post-Training Reward Partially Restores Chronic Stress Induced Effects in Mice. Dalm, Sergiu; Ron de Kloet, E.; Oitzl, Melly S. // PLoS ONE;Jun2012, Vol. 7 Issue 6, p1 

    Reduced responsiveness to positive stimuli is a core symptom of depression, known as anhedonia. In the present study, we assessed the expression of anhedonia in our chronic stress mouse model using a subset of read-out parameters. In line with this, we investigated in how far chronic stress...

  • Memory. Maher, Michael // America;1/27/1917, Vol. 16 Issue 16, p370 

    The article discusses issues and topics related to memory. It tackles the three elements involved in the act of memory which include retention, reproduction and recognition. It stresses that retention and reproduction do not make up the whole of an act of memory. It claims that mental states...

  • Awakened Memories. Cristy, H.; Stansbury, Sharon; H., Sally // Dolls;Apr2013, Vol. 32 Issue 4, p10 

    Several letters to the editor are presented in response to the article "Treasured Memories," by Diedre A. Ware in the March 2013 issue.

  • Perceptual expertise enhances the resolution but not the number of representations in working memory. Miranda Scolari; Edward K. Vogel; Edward Awh // Psychonomic Bulletin & Review;Feb2008, Vol. 15 Issue 1, p215 

    Despite its central role in cognition, capacity in visual working memory is restricted to about three or four items. Curby and Gauthier (2007) examined whether perceptual expertise can help to overcome this limit by enabling more efficient coding of visual information. In line with this, they...

  • Short-term storage and mental speed account for the relationship between working memory and fluid intelligence. Burgaleta, Miguel; Colom, Roberto // Psicothema;nov2008, Vol. 20 Issue 4, p780 

    Here, we explore the role of short-term storage, mental speed, processing efficiency, and controlled attention to account for the relationship between working memory and fluid intelligence. Ninety-six secondary school students were assessed by several tests and tasks to tap these psychological...

    Background: The ability to predict the level of care received by elderly retirees was compared in a discriminant model and using a classification tree derived from cognitive and noncognitive variables. Methods. Participants were 193 residents (mean age, 79.1+/-5.1 years) of a...
