IN THIS UNIT’S STUDIES, YOU COMPLETED THE FOLLOWING:
- Selected and viewed a movie that illustrates an important effect of memory. Some possible choices were Memento (2000), 50 First Dates (2004), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), The Notebook (2004), and Total Recall (1990).
- Located at least three scholarly or peer-reviewed sources that address the problem in memory and helped you better understand the causes and consequences of the memory issue portrayed in the movie. You then thought about the accuracy with which the character is portrayed as an individual who has the memory condition.
- Researched the difference between semantic, episodic, and procedural memory.
Based on watching the movie and your research, complete the following:
- Describe, briefly, the plot of the movie you selected and the main character involved. Explain how the movie illustrates the memory effect of interest.
- Use the three scholarly sources you found that relate to the memory issue presented in the movie and summarize what you learned from the sources. Explain how the sources relate to what you learned about how memory functions.
- Take into account what you have learned about memory and describe what was realistic about the movie’s presentation and what inaccuracies you identified. What would you change in the movie to make a more accurate presentation? What type of memory system was dealt with in the movie (semantic, episodic, or procedural)?
- Describe the relevant scholarship—what is known about the condition and what the problems or unresolved issues are that have yet to be researched—as it relates to the memory condition presented in the movie.
