Memory Construction Error
I like to think that I have a pretty good memory and (before I understood memory), I would spend countless opportunities arguing with friends and family about how the other person’s memory was wrong, and mymemory of the same incident was right! I suspect you have done the same. In reading the modules, I hope you are starting to realize that our memories are more fallible than we like to admit.
Describe a disagreement that you’ve had with someone about an incident that involved memory. Using the research on Memory Construction Errors*, choose 1 construction error that would explain why YOUR memory of the incident MIGHT be wrong (you are not admitting that your memory is wrong – you are merely speculating on how your memory might be wrong). (haha)
In discussing your chosen memory construction error, be sure to
- (5 pts) describe the disagreement in detail; what did you say happened? what did the other person say?
- (4 pts) describe/explain the construction error(do not summarize the error; take the time to explain how it works);
- (3 pts) discuss how the construction error is reflected in the memory incident you have described above; AND
- (3 pts) describe one study that shows the error in action (do not summarize the study; take the time to explain what happened; you can use the studies that are presented in your text)
If you’ve never argued or disagreed with someone about a memory (!), describe a case in the news that has relied on eyewitness memory and apply the forum assignment to this case. You can only apply the same memory construction errors* listed below.
Don’t forget your response postings. Response postings are required each week even if I don’t remind you.
Let the confessions begin!
*Memory Construction errors are not the same as processing errors or forgetting: there are only 3 kinds that you should be writing about: source amnesia, misinformation error, or imagination error. Be sure you are writing about the correct information (see pp. 306-309).
