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.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
