Jonathan Price 203547464 Life Science 2 Section 2 Discussion 2F Kyle Kerm January 13, 2008 Proposal Title: How sleep directly after being presented with information helps to improve explicit memory formation in undergraduate students’ ability on the MIT word test. Introduction: Hypothesis - The means of Group 1 (those who sleep for 3 hours after being presented with a list of words to memorize) and Group 2 (those who remain awake for the 3 hours after being presented with the list) are different to a statistically significant extent. Null Hypothesis - The means of Group 1 and Group 2 are not different to any statistically significant extent. Rationale - Recognition memory is composed of two distinct functions, namely explicit and implicit. Explicit deals with an event that is to be memorized directly, whereas implicit deals with recognition based on familiarity towards events without prior context. These different types of memories are controlled supposedly by distinct systems. 1
