This essay will aim to conclude that the theory of influences does affect human behavior and performance. The use of language is a form of performance. This performance covers our ability to listen, speak and use written language and sign language. To be capable of language various parts of our brains need to be functioning. Language impairment can be influenced by brain damage (Toates, 2010).
In this essay, the basic characteristics of autobiographical memory will be studied, the organization and types of autobiographical memory will be discussed, the interaction between language processing and learning will be explored and issues such as infantile amnesia, the awareness of self and brain development, will be examined. To start with, memory in general could be described as a process of storing, interpreting and retrieving information and experiences. But when we talk about autobiographical memory, we refer to the memories we have about ourselves and our personal experiences and also to the information about specific situations we have come across in the past (Bauer, 2007). In psychology the organization of memory and its division into other categories, helps studying in detail the various factors that exist within it. Firstly, memory can be divided into two sections; into short – term store (STS) and long – term store (LTS).
Outline and evaluate the model of working memory In this essay I am going outline what is working memory in terms of psychology and evaluate it in terms of both advantages and limitation of the working memory model. The fact that short-term memory contains both new information and information retrieved from long-term memory has led some psychologists to prefer the term ‘working memory’ (Baddeley and Hitch, 1974; Baddeley, 1986,1992) Working memory model is an alternative to the multi-store model; it is a far more complex explanation of short-term memory. Baddeley and Hitch argued that the short-term memory was made up of several subsystems, each of them have a specialized function, rather than the short-term memory model being a single inflexible store. According to Martin, G. N, Carlson, N.R & Buskist, W. (2006) “According to Baddeley, working memory is a short-term memory system that allows us to retain material for current use and not just for transport into long-term memory.” Baddeley suggested this short-term memory as having three independent components that allow us to store temporarily visuo-spatial material and verbal material. These components were so-called the Visuo-Spatial Sketchpad and the Phonological Loop.
As a result, it is necessary to explore the connection between language production and semantic memory. The purpose of the paper is to discuss the connection between language and memory. The paper will discuss the function of semantic memory and the function of language production. In addition, the paper will outline the stages involved in the language production process and explain the relationship between semantic memory and language production process. The Nature and Function of Semantic Memory Semantic memory is based on information and or common facts that most individuals know.
Leading up to this language assessment, I have been studying my own idiolect, including what words I say and why I say them. I researched different factors that affect not just my speech, but that of those around me and comparing and contrasting the two. In addition, I have looked into how the attitudes of those around me can influence my language choices and alter the way I speak. I made a transcript of a conversation between one of my friends and myself, and now, after looking into it at depth and applying my new found knowledge in the field of linguistics, I have picked up on certain features of my idiolect that keep recurring throughout the transcript. They include occasional use of fillers, hesitation indicators and false starts in my speech, but I will develop these points later on in my study.
Next is, Linguistic Intelligence-the mastery of language. Also listed is, Spatial Intelligence- the ability to manipulate and create mental images in order to solve problems. Additionally there’s, Musical Intelligence- the ability to recognize and compose musical pitches, tones and rhythms. Similarly listed is, Bodily Kinesthetic Intelligence-the ability to use mental abilities to synchronize bodily movements. There’s also, Interpersonal Intelligence- the ability to understand and discern the feelings of others.
The left brain vs. the right brain Lisa Fettro APU Professor Nikki Charles The right and left hemispheres of the brain usually process information differently. People tend to process information they receive using their dominant side of the brain. However, people tend to learn both sides of the brain participate in a manner that is balanced. This is a clear indication that a person uses all sides of his or her brain to learn. The right part of the brain has its own style of processing information.
In addition to that, the practical and academic intelligence which are able to develop independently or conflict with each other and the culture’s values might shape in child’s development direction. There is part from the first article, which I also disagree, “...everyone raised in a particular culture will share equally in that culture’s style of thinking...”, so that I do not think that the cognitive development of people are based on just the culture. The second article of the paper is about the cultural conditions on intelligence tests. According to researches in the article, nonverbal or visual intelligence tests are based on cultural conditions. There is an argument which explains the needs of adapting the intelligence tests to other cultures.
An individual’s response to their environment can appear as though it is an impulse act. This occurs because information is transmitted to the mind, is processed immediately, and the behavior is the result of completion. Cognition involves discovering, recognizing, studying, investigating, learning, or making decisions (Ruisel, 2010). It is composed of the ways that the mind functions, thinks, and uses information that results in an individual’s behavior. Interdisciplinary Perspective Cognitive psychology is a branch of psychology;
Emotional feelings reveals when we become consciously alert that an emotion system of the brain is active. Any organism that has consciousness also has feelings. However, feelings will be different in a brain that can organize the world linguistically and categorize experiences in words than in a brain that cannot. The difference between fear, anxiety, terror, apprehension, etc. would not be possible without language.
