Sometimes this means we can separate the problem from ourselves and see it for what it is: just a problem. Doing so, itContinue reading “When meditation and stillness doesn’t work”

New manipulations to test stability bias and ease of processing effect on metamemory

Veneta Callpani | Lehman College| |Cognitive Psychology| |12/14/2020| Discussion We expanded the research about the ease of processing and the stability bias by testing new manipulations. It was expected that the high frequency words would be perceived as easier and more memorable, and the study repetition would be underestimated because of the belief that memoryContinue reading “New manipulations to test stability bias and ease of processing effect on metamemory”

New manipulations to test stability bias and ease of processing effect on metamemory

Veneta Callpani | Lehman College| |Cognitive Psychology| |12/14/2020| ¬†¬†Method Participants Thirty-nine undergraduate students in Cognitive Psychology class participated in a study designed to test metamemory. The academic background of the students is similar, they are psychology major, or/and Biology- brain science track. The average age = 25.9.

New manipulations to test stability bias and ease of processing effect on metamemory

Veneta Callpani | Lehman College| |Cognitive Psychology| |12/14/2020| Abstract The present study is an expansion on prior research about metamemory. New manipulations of word frequency and study repetition were introduced to test the ease of process and stability bias. Thirty-nine college students, native and non-native English speaker, participated in the study. The data and resultsContinue reading “New manipulations to test stability bias and ease of processing effect on metamemory”
