You need to write a paper discussing various aspects of your processing of this picture including aspects of perception (ch4) memory (ch6) and knowledge representation (ch6&ch7). Please review the instructions here and submit the paper in the link below. Remember that your paper needs to be in paper format (title, author’s name, full paragraphs meaningfully connected, citations in the text and references listed in the end). Your paper needs to address the questions listed below but it should NOT be a list of answers. It is your task to integrate the answers into one paper. For example for part 3 instead ot saying “the schema I am using here is… I was asked what type of schema it is and it is…. etc” write a paragraph like I wrote below for my picture (see wiki for my picture and a full example)
“In my picture I am standing in front of a street fall decoration. My schema for fall decorations include items such as pumpkins, scarecrows, mums, hay red and yellow leaves, jack-o-lanterns, skulls, black cats and bats. This schema is an example of a scene-schema because it is a representation of set of objects organized in a certain way (just like chairs and table are typically organized in a certain way in a classroom scene but differently in a kitchen scene and you would not find them at all in bathroom scene). The fact that I retrieve this schema when trying to remember this scene might affect my memory by distorting my episodic memory for this particular scene to better fit my semantic memory represented by my schema. For example, I thought there were fall leaves in the display but when examining the picture carefully there really aren’t any. I remember fall leaves because they are part of my schema even though they were not actually in the display. The particular objects we expect in fall displays in this area are culturally dependent, for example, day-of-the-dead displays in Mexico (during the same time of year) also include skulls but they are specially decorated with dots and lines and flowery decorations. other items include many different kinds of flowers (not just mums), cut outs in colorful papers (including colors not associated with fall in this counrty like bright pink and blue), fruits (apples, pears, etc) and cakes/sweetbreads (bing.com\images)”
Here are the sections/questions that your paper should address, look over the questions again when you finish the paper and make sure you addressed all of them:
Insert your picture under the title.
1. Perception: What depth cues are present in you photograph and what category do they all fall in? Find at least three and for each one do the following: Name the cue, explain how it works in general, and describe exactly how it works in your picture (where is it? what objects, characteristics, features, etc are involved).
2. Types of memory: What is the memory you most strongly associate with this picture?- describe it and explain what type of memory it is. Identify three other memories you have related to your picture: You should have at least four memories altogether for your picture: Episodic, Semantic, Procedural, Priming (e.g., perceptual priming).
3. Identify a schema that is related to the picture and analyze it based on the following questions:
a. What is the specific schema you identified?
b. What type of schema is it?
c. How might this schema affect your memory for the picture or the event associated with it?
d. How might this schema be affected by cultural differences? (you will probably need to look for more information on this from other sources as well)
Use APA style to format the paper (title page, running head, 12 point font, double spaced, correct formating for headings, citations, references etc.) but there is no need for an abstract. See “syllabus and Genereral information” section for template. Papers may be submitted anytime UP TO the due date listed in the schedule.
