Daniel Washington 10/7/2015 Behavioral and neuroanatomical investigation of Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory Experiment The overarching question for this study is what are the underlying neurological mechanisms that enable those who have autobiographical memory to remember every detail in every past event without having mnemonic skills? The researchers in this study attempt to answer this question by using four neuroanatomical procedures to test those who have HSAM. These procedures included a Voxel Based Morphometry Grey-Matter, a Voxel Based Morphometry White-Matter, a Tenor Based Morphometry, and a Diffusion Tensor Imaging-Fractional Anistropy. The purpose of these methods was to examine any distinct brain structures for HSAM participants. The independent variable in this experiment was a multi-step procedure that included three conditions for testing HSAM participants: a screening procedure, a cognitive battery control, and an MRI. The dependent variable was the measurement of the results.

    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.
