Prior to engaging in this discussion, please read “The Development of Memory Efficiency and Value-Directed Remembering Across the Life Span” article, watch the Memory processes, Storage and Recall and Three Kinds of Memory videos, and review any relevant instructor guidance. Respond to at least two of your classmates by Day 5 (Saturday). Comment on at least one of your classmates’ responses to your initial post by Day 7 of the week. Be sure to respond to your instructor’s comments to you in this forum by Day 7.
Describe how memory development and learning affect each other by defining the types of memories listed below in your own words (the use of quotations is inappropriate) and citing personal examples of each.
- Episodic Memories
- Semantic Memories
- Procedural Memories
Apply basic research methods in psychology to your initial statements on these issues by researching at least one peer-reviewed article per memory type (three articles total) in the Ashford University Library to supplement your definition of each. (For assistance in finding peer-reviewed articles in the Ashford University Library please view this tutorial.) Critically analyze and discuss, in depth, how each of your real-life examples represents each type of memory. Evaluate and comment on how episodic memories, semantic memories, and procedural memories each potentially affect how a person learns.
