Questions related to Prospective Memory
Even if behavior was "embodied", wouldn't the brain notice? YES, of course: then the BRAIN would become the better "vehicle" for remembering, thinking, and "time travel" (i.e. prospective memory) -- possible (and possibly trivial) sensori-motor components notwithstanding. [ I am really quite tired of the "embodied" conceptualizations (which have yet to be shown as non-fictions *). See my writings. No one has argued against the views/approaches (content) in these writings NOR accepted/liked/or adopted them (now 1+ years (or 5+ years, depending how you look at it) and counting). ]
* Footnote: All this nonsense is ALL because NO PSYCHOLOGY OUTLOOK (other than my own) "believes in" anything psychological, innately guided, and emerging with ontogeny (which is not tenable). (The idea that learning is literally nearly always "the same" (outside of clearly always being associative in nature) is preposterous (think of a two -year-old and an adolescent -- and imagine any systematic and universal instruction you credibly might posit). P.S. Relatedly : "Culture" does NOT directly impinge on the individual -- the actual Subject and ultimate, but absolutely necessary, unit of analysis &/or explanation (for Biology or for Science). All executive or "meta" processes can NOT be properly shown to be anything but homunculi.)
I am thinking to do a study on looking at the relationship between prospective memory and academic procrastination. Rationale is that procrastinator might delay a task intentionally but might forget to get back to the task a result of poor prospective memory?
is it possible?
I have no experience in statistics whatsoever and I am trying to teach myself online. Just wondering if anyone can help.
I have conducted an experiment with two groups
1. Morning Shift
2. Night Shift
and I tested to see how they would perform in a measure of prospective memory (a game they played on their computer)
Participants were engaged in an ongoing task, and then needed to remember to respond with the correct action when a target appeared on the screen.
As well as how many targets they managed to hit, I am also interested in their reaction time and how well they performed in the on going task.
I have all the data in an excel spread sheet I just don't know what to do with it.
I collected other information such as age, gender, cups of coffee, how long they had been awake, activity level during the day, and whether they had a nap and how sleepy they felt before the test.
And I would like to know whether I can see whether these things influenced the results at all, and if they did how I can "see through" that to get a more accurate answer as to whether shift start time affects prospective memory performance.
If anyone can shed some light on where to begin, or steps that need to be taken, programs I need to use, links I can follow - anything!
That would be great!!
I'm teaching the links between PM and WM and have a couple of articles but ideally need more to shown links between these two.
How to find out ERP component in Prospective memory task after stimulus presentation and which ERP component (Peak) is represent it?
Why is there a difference between an item on a to-do list or calendar that says "Goto gym" versus one that says "Fit into tuxedo in time for wedding - work out at the gym now!"
Which studies can I read that demonstrate this difference?
My ongoing task is to count the number of small and large squares, separately. My prospective memory task is to have participants respond with a different key press when they encounter a green square.
How can I make it harder for participants to identify PM targets (green squares) in this task?
