Wk3 discussion: short-term memory loss

 Please read the instructions carefully!!!!

Have you ever entered a room to retrieve an object, only to forget why you went into the room in the first place? Your short-term memory betrayed you.

Have you ever been introduced to several people in quick succession, instantly forgetting their names? Again, your short-term memory was to blame.

Short-term memory is limited in duration: Information retained for a period of seconds soon vanishes if not repeated or rehearsed. It is also limited in capacity: as new information enters your working memory buffer, previously stored items are displaced and lost, as can happen during introductions among groups of individuals. Finally short-term memory is susceptible to distraction. Unexpected stimuli, new scenes, or interjections can disrupt your train of thought.

For this Discussion, consider types of short-term memory. Think about strategies to improve short-term memory.

With these thoughts in mind:

 

Post an example of short-term memory loss that you have experienced. Then explain your short-term memory loss within the context of the working memory model. Finally, explain strategies you might use to improve your short-term memory function.

Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
