VERBAL IMAGERY ABSTRACT The present experiment was conducted to study the effect of word length and presence or absence of visual cues on memory. It was conducted to see whether the presence or absence of visual cues leads to better remembrance of the words presented to the participant. Also the length of the words was taken into consideration to test the memory of the words shown to the participant.
The speed of processing theory says that colors are named slower than the words being read. The selective attention theory shows that reading words need less attention than reading color. Both theories state that words are easier to resight than colors. Perception (which is the amount of awareness about something) is another thing that is
Leding (2012) discusses how there are three theories of false memory in the journal article “False memories and persuasion strategies”. These notions of false memory include the source monitoring framework theory, the activation monitoring theory and the fuzzy trace theory. The source monitoring theory is where a specific experience is recollected incorrectly and found to be the foundation of a memory. This fault happens when normal perceptual and reflective processes are interrupted.
The data analysis was done partially through the combination of qualitative (linguistic error and time) and also quantitative which the data was measured by accuracy performance (percentage
Participants were given series of tasks such as determining which word rhymed and which word’s color matched the main word. After each task, the screen went blank for 750ms. In the end, the participants were given a surprise test measuring how well they could recall the target words. The results of the experiment showed that the level of processing principles were more displayed under long-term memory and were nonexistent under working
A study done by Burgett 12found that patients in whom occlusal adjustment was done as a part of periodontal treatment showed an improvement in attachment level than those in whom occlusal adjustment was not done, though it was only statistically relevant. A pair of studies done in humans, found that teeth with occlusal discrepancies in the beginning had significantly greater initial probing depths, greater mobility and a worse prognosis than teeth without occlusal discrepancies to begin with13. It was also found that correction of occlusal discrepancies significantly reduced the progression of periodontal disease and also helps to optimize the treatment outcome. However there are studies reporting against the role of occlusal discrepancies in increased rate of periodontal destruction 14,15,16. Occlusal adjustment by selective grinding is indicated to eliminate premature contacts or occlusal interferences and it helps in equal distribution of all forces on the teeth and also establishes a harmonious relationship among the components of the stomatognathic system.
The echo chamber effect states that similar viewpoints are fortified whereas opposing viewpoints are either silenced or ignored. (Sunstein, 2007 as cited in Williams, McMurray, Kurz, & Lambert, 2015) The research conducted by William et al., (2015) has also found that users inhabiting echo chambers, are more likely to hold polarised views than users who are exposed to an assortment of views. The echo chamber effect can be seen in fig
Pōder (2006), following up on the feature integration theory of attention’s feature aspect of visual searches, tested the effects of colour on target identification time. 3 experiments were conducted and it was concluded that reaction time was faster if the target was a different colour from the distractors and targets that were colours such as red were more easily identified (popped out) than targets that were yellow (Pōder, 2006). Thompson and Miliken (2010) also go further by examining the “priming of pop out” (Thompson & Miliken, 2010, p. 318) so as to test the feature integration theory of attention in relation to how prior experiences can affect reaction time. In their experiments they compared reaction time for a target whose features would remain constant initially with a sudden change in task (Thompson & Miliken, 2010). The results of the experiment showed that if the same task was repeated then reaction time would be faster than if the task was suddenly changed, thus providing evidence that we store features of targets in our memory and use this memory for visual searches (Thompson & Miliken,
The model offers causal explanations as well as simply describing personality traits (Costa & McCrae, 1992). Cattell and Eysenck arrived at two very different, but not irreconcilable theories of personality. The two theorists used factor analysis very differently, but actually their conceptualisations are not fundamentally different. Eysenck 's extraversion-introversion supertrait is highly similar to Cattell 's exvia-invia, and neuroticism is very similar to anxiety. Eysenck preferred to work with a broad three dimensional picture, whereas Cattell believed that working with a larger number of traits, a more accurate perception of personality is obtained (Hampson, 1988).
The reason why this is used is because the smaller the alpha level, the smaller area where you draw your hypothesis. The alpha level relies on how positive you desire to be present that probability is not accountable for the result of improbable procedures. I would use the same alpha level because if an experimental result has less than this possibility of occurrence at random, then it can be called statistically significant. If there were any changes to make the alpha smaller then the null hypothesis would be discarded. To draw a better and more accurate conclusion I would use a greater number of participants to perform the tasks and delope a larger sample size and observation.

Stereotype consistent information is information that is passed to one another that follows the general ideas that we already have about other social groups (Kashima, Lyons, & Clark, 2013). Plenty of studies have shown that during communication people tend to remember stereotype-consistent information much more than stereotype-inconsistent information (Kashima, Lyons, & Clark, 2013). Researchers believe this is due to stereotype-consistent information appearing to be truer than stereotype-inconsistent information (Kashima, Lyons, & Clark, 2013). This strengthens societies
