DSE212 – week 18 – Memory: structures, processes and skills

Memory on this week’s schedule for my psychology course with lots of interesting looks at brain structures (such as London cab drivers having enlarged posterior hippocampal areas, and various impairments relating to damage), as well as cognitive processes and strategies for improving memory. Just a smidgeon to late there was an entire section on how to study effectively in order to recall information later (such as in an exam). A few more psychology books added to my wishlist as a result, including the work of Alexander Luria on S.V. Shereshevskii.

All up to date now with my studies, just in time for a tutorial on Thursday.
