2.8.08 Memory and Learning CAUSALITY: Why is it easier to remember a story? Interesting – Gets Attention Chronological order so makes sense Relate to life – makes it easier to remember Creates image in head We have more of a memory for what goes wrong then for what goes right T1 ---- T2 Enthymeme: Something is left out of the information that causes you to fill in around that Re-member: is to rejoin someone We remember stories easier because: Emotion Detail Causality Superstition Syncretic Memory: (Syncretic: Bringing things together that don’t exactly fit); when two events (that are completely unrelated) take place and because they happen at the same time, they have a special memory force.

At that moment she ‘fell in love.’ Temporal Rationality: From things that co-occur

    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.
