Another example of false memory is source monitoring confusion. Source monitoring confusion is when an individual is unsure where a memory has originated. Jim was ecstatic when his parents won the lottery, so his great emotions towards that day may be interfering with the actual occurrence. Brains occasionally mix desires with reality, making it difficult to depict between the two in a memory. Brains examine the vividness and accuracy of memories and then determine whether they are true or false.

He opens the fourth chapter by stating, "I won the parent lottery" (Pausch 21). Although Pausch truly believes this statement, it is merely an opinion that is lacking support. Pausch needs to support his opinion, in order to make it believable. By bringing in his setting to help explain why he believes he won the parent lottery, using specific memories, such as "They underwrote a fifty-student dormitory in rural Thailand" (Pausch 24) and "My dad was an incredible storyteller" (Pausch 22), his opinion begins to gain credibility because there is reasoning behind it. Moreover, had there been no support from his memory, the statement would remain simply an

Political speech is important for a democracy to function as a collective unit of individuals who make up a society that solves problems together. There is, however, the problem of propaganda when dealing with persuasive rhetoric aimed at a populous looking to find the best solution of the options available to them. Politicians find themselves looking towards the sensational rather than the rational when grabbing the attention of the masses. The discussion of political speech is one that spans centuries from ancient thinkers like Thucydides to the contemporary thinker Jason Stanley. In his book “How Propaganda Works”, Stanley looks to dissect the use of propaganda in society and differentiate what he deems demagoguery and civic rhetoric.
Are You Sure? Why have more than two-thousand people exonerated for crimes they didn’t commit? Eyewitness misidentification is the leading cause of wrongful convictions in the U.S. Memory can be influenced by anxiety, stress, reconstructive memory and other factors possibly affecting the testimony of the eyewitness and in turn, misleading the jury. I think that when subjects witness a crime they will struggle to remember important details of the event, and their recollection could be easily altered. This is because the reconstructive memory can be influenced by factors such as stress, anxiety, and verbal cues.
