In short term memory, there is a limited capacity of much information can be held. Long term memory has an unlimited capacity however; the average capacity of short term memory is 7 items at a time. In 1956, Miller proposed that we could hold about 7 items in our short term memory but there is also a range of capacity of five to nine items which is why his article is known as ‘The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two’. Miller conducted an experiment in which participants were given ‘sentences; varying in lengths. They were asked to recall words in the correct order given in the sentence.
It came back a year later that only 60% of these children that were treated were successful, while the rest failed, but it is stated that this medication is not for everyone and does have severe side effects. Some of the side effects are that of more sleep for the medicated, where as the unmediated can get less sleep. With Ritalin a child can become more depressed, but the pro would be the ability to focus more in school. In my personal opinion, you can medicate a child to death, but you need to understand the cause of the behavioral problem, before you can remove the cause. Just proving a child with medicine but not really knowing for what is not the answer.
4 marks 3 studies – HM, KF and Clive W MARK SCHEME – KF – impaired stm, unaffected ltm One study which demonstrates that LTM AND STM are different is the study of HM. HM suffered from brain damage due to an operation he underwent to remove the hippocampus from both sides of his brain this was to reduce the severe epilepsy he suffered from. HM’s personality and intellect remained intact but he could now no longer form new long term memories although he could remember things from before his surgery. This could suggest to us that the hippocampus acts as a ‘gateway’ though which new memories must pass before entering permanent
The research carried out allowed us to confirm that using the method of loci would improve and an individual’s recall. Introduction The Multi-Store Model (MSM) of Memory was proposed by Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968 and claimed the memory system contained three structural components. Sensory memory (SM) stores information that is collected by our senses (sight, smell, hearing etc.). This information is received continually but the majority is ignored and only stored for a brief moment of time. At this point it is either disregarded or transferred to the short term memory (STM) store.
Stolzer and articles are not persuasive and begin on the wrong foot by claiming that ADHD is an epidemic in this country, however, I would not go as far as saying that this is an epidemic yet. She also claims that ADHD behaviour is normal for an adolescent boy, but how can it be normal is currently is being treated widespread as a mental disorder? Surely not all of these people are wrong. Stolzer states that in 1950s ADHD were not in existence, however, research by Mark Elf Ullrich is proven, in his article attention deficit hyperactivity disorder the most studied yet most controversial diagnosis that reports of ADHD like behaviour have been dated back to as early as 1980 (Wolraich, M. L. 1999). Stolzer forgets to mention is that ADHD has been an old documents disorder that has just been coined with seemingly appropriate name.
There has been a lot of research that suggests that the immune system can be severely affected by stress. Kiecolt-Glaser did an experiment to evaluate the effect of acute stressors on the immune system. She had a group of students who were about to have their medical exams. She took the blood sample one month before the exams and another during the exam period. She measured the NK cell activity to see how the immune system was effected and found that the NK cell activity had dropped significantly in the second blood sample that had been taken shows that stress had caused to lower the efficiency of the immune system and made the students were vulnerable to stress-related illnesses.
She also give example to the reader that obyes is the main problem of strock , cadiovascular failurer , high or low blood pressure .

There are parts of the hospital for massing and to these people massaging is serious, just like surgery. A person who works in a hospital may not work in the massaging department until they have worked there for a year and have passed testes to preform on patients. Most patients who have been exposed to massaging will say they can feel warmth and they can feel their Chi being released, just like their blood flowing through their body. In the west there is no cure for fibrocystic breast cancer, but to the Chinese medicine, massaging works. In the movie one woman with this disease expressed that she tried taking medicine and it never worked, but massaging works along with having hardly any pain.
The Practice of Prescribing During a well-baby clinic a client attended with a 6 month old baby with bad nappy rash. The nurse prescriber (NP) made an assessment of the baby and mother through discussion whilst the baby was being weighed. I observed history taking throughout the discussion, this helps to build a summary of medical and social history and establish any allergies. During the assessment it was established mother had been using very cheap nappies which are not as absorbent and then mother was continually washing the baby. The NP recommended using another brand as it was not cost effective using cheaper nappies and then changing them more frequently, the more the baby was changed and had urine close to the skin the more likely of increased nappy rash.
