Assignment 2: LASA 1: False Memories
The US legal system places a lot of importance on eyewitness memory. Most people would report that they can accurately convey what they saw in a particular situation. However, these ideas are not supported by research. Instead, research shows that memory is quite malleable and is affected by many factors. This research repeatedly demonstrates that people do not remember exactly what they experienced. This module’s experiment will show you firsthand how memory for events is not always one hundred percent accurate.
Access the CogLab demonstration False Memory. Follow the instructions to complete the demonstration to familiarize yourself with false memory. Then locate at least one research study from a peer-reviewed journal that examined how eyewitness memory can be affected by false memories.
Based on your research, respond to the following situation:
You are considered to be an expert in false memories, and a local district attorney has therefore requested your expertise on the following case:
On Tuesday, March 6, 2007, a bank was robbed in Slidell, LA. It was just after opening time, 9:04 a.m., and there were barely any customers, when a car arrived and parked in the side parking lot of the bank. Two men came out of the car and walked to the entrance. Both wore dark clothing. Upon entering the bank, they held out guns and asked for the manager. When the manager identified herself, the smaller of the two robbers ordered her to open the safe. Meanwhile, the other robber, a tall, and burley man, walked around holding his gun in his outstretched arm, and threatening the remaining employees and customers. The manager complied and the smaller robber collected all the money and valuables from the safe. After five minutes, the big robber asked if his companion was ready to go. When he was, the two ran back to their car, and drove away.
The district attorney has asked that you create a presentation about false memory and explain how it might influence this case. He asks that you specifically address the following:Describe false memory and false memory experiments. Use the CogLab experiment to illustrate false memory experiments, special distracters, and normal distracters.Describe at least one research study from a peer-reviewed journal that investigated how eyewitness memory can be affected by false memories.Explain how false memory might influence this particular case. Use specifics from the description of the case, the CogLab experiment, and research to support your answer.Using evidence from the case, the CogLab experiment, and outside research, justify why eyewitness testimonies should or should not carry weight in criminal proceedings.Discuss any procedures which can increase or reduce the occurrence of false memories when reporting eyewitness events.
Remember, your presentation is designed to help the jury understand false memory and how it might influence the eyewitness testimony of this case. You will have ten minutes to present.
Since this is a legal case, you must include formally written slide notes (proper grammar, proper paragraphs, APA formatting, and academic tone) with research to support your claims. The presentation will be a legal document in this case, so make it worthy of being legally binding!
Develop an 5–6-slide presentation in PowerPoint format. Apply APA standards to citation of sources. Use the following file naming convention: LastnameFirstInitial_M3_A2.ppt.
This assignment is a writing assignment on intrinsic and extrinsic motivation. You are to explore what type of motivation is mostly driving your college attendance. Intrinsic motivation comes from within and extrinsic motivation comes from without, that is other external factors such as; money, job, success, a degree, family, friends, children etc. Remember this is a writing assignment and is expected to be about a page in length single spaced or full page double spaced. You may also discuss other topics in addition to college attendance if you would like.
Part I – Developmental Stages
For each developmental domain, physical, cognitive, and social, identify two major changes or challenges associated with the following stages: childhood, adolescence, and adulthood.
Stage of Development
Part II – Developmental Gaps
Respond to the following in at least 150 words:
Demonstrate the interdependence of all the areas of development (physical, cognitive, and social) by imagining a persons’ behavior with one area missing. Create a scenario with an area of development lacking and describe the possible results. You may focus on a specific age or imagine how a later age would be affected by the lack of an area during an earlier age (e.g., how a lack of cognitive development during infancy would affect the behavior of an adult).
Revised from Learn Psychology, p. 494
Part III – Nature Versus Nurture
Using your own words, write at least 100 words describing the concept of “nature versus nurture”:
Assistance is needed in completing the following Assignment. I have attached a Template that needs to be used.
For this Assignment, you will work in groups assigned in Unit 4. For the character exhibiting abnormal behavior that you selected in Unit 4, write a 3 to 4-page double-spaced paper (excluding the title page and reference page) using the Assignment template in Course Documents to explain the following:
1. Name the movie and describe the character’s general behavior in question. “THE MOVIE IS SHREK”
“THE CHARACTER IS SHREK”
2. (a) Identify and list as many symptoms of a mental illness that the character is exhibiting (See DSM-5).
· (b) Referring to the DSM-5, the definition of abnormal behavior from the course textbook, and based on your observation of the character’s behavior in the movie, explain why the behavior appears to be abnormal?
· (c) Based on the DSM-5, which mental disorder do you believe the character’s symptoms best represent?
· (d) Are there any indications that suggest the character may have a different mental disorder other than the one you have listed in C? If so, why did you dismiss other possible disorders over your chosen disorder?
3. Was the movie’s portrayal of the character convoluted or normalized making the distinction of abnormal behavior from that of normal behavior blurred? Explain what cultural influences can make it difficult to identity symptoms of mental disorder. For example, was part of the movie a comedy that joked about the character’s behavior, such as Jim Carrey in the movie Me, Myself, and Irene, was addictive behavior normalized, was the behavior downplayed as simply teenage behavior gone “bad”, or was the behavior glamorized as a damsel in distress being saved by a hero?
