To prepare

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources on cognitive evolution, memory, and cognitive neuroscience.
  • Locate a peer-reviewed journal article on memory related to one of the following topics:
    • Improving memory
    • Aging
    • Amnesia
    • Cognitive mapping
  • Consider how the article you selected relates to cognition and cognitive neuroscience.

By Day 4

Post a response to the following:

Briefly describe the article you found on memory. Explain how the article informs our understanding of cognition and cognitive neuroscience. Be specific.

Note: Support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources and any additional sources you identify using both in-text citations and references. It is strongly recommended that you include proper APA format and citations.
