Goode Outlines

Organizing Your Paper
Making an Outline

Writing an outline in addition to the paper may seem like a lot of extra work, especially if your teacher doesn't require one. If you take the time to think about what you want to say and to put your ideas into an outline, writing the actual paper will be easier. An outline is a listing of brief ideas that will be in the paper.

My research question, if you have been following me, is holding up okay, but I hope I can find more information on early memory. I have not had to modify it a whole whole lot, but there doesn't seem to be any more information on the subject. I have found enough information on general memory, but I can't seem to find much on early memory. I am still wondering, although not as much, about why you can remeber ome things, but not others. What I have learned about research so far is it is a time and energy consuming thing that you have to be devoted to to complete thoroughly. I personally don't like the process beccause there is usually alot riding on wetherlor not you complete the work. I am almost ready to start writing, but I need to organize my thoughts a little better first.

More good stuff.

You might think something as traumatic as birth would leave its mark on your memory, but chances are you can only recall back to age 5. Why? One theory points to myelin, the protective nerve sheathing that helps with signal conduction; before age 5, a child's brain is low in myelin. Another possible explanation: As we learn to speak, we can no longer access memories created in our preverbal years.

Jonathan Schooler, Ph.D., an assistant professor of psychology at the University of British Columbia.

This means we can't remember anything from 5 or a little earlier depending on the person. We can't remember because we haven't had enough myeline developed in our brains to connect sensory impules, therfore we don't store the memory.

When a child learns to ride a bicycle, he makes two sets of memories: One is explicit memory, which records things like the color of the bike and the prideful sensation of riding unassisted. Implicit memory, on the other hand, notes the body mechanics required to ride the bike, which is why it's sometimes called "muscle memory," says Janet Gibson, Ph.D., a professor of psychology at Grinnell College, in Iowa. Even when explicit memories fail, implicit ones remain.

This makes perfect sense because most people remember first time physical experiences.

My project.

I have long been interested in the human memory becasue vital info is stored there, yet I don't know how it works. Now, because Miss Goode assigned it to me, i hav the chance to redearch this topic for a grade. No one can deny the memory is a most puzzleing function,but we rely on it so much. I will first research the general topic of memory, and then I will divide it up and place them in order of relation to each other.
