Hello Dr. Alicia and class mates,

In this assignment on the Psychsim 5 CD we reviewed the Iconic memory process.

Iconic memory is a momentary memory sensory of
visual stimuli, a photographic or picture image memory lasting no more
then a few 10ths of a second.

After completing the exercises I realized I could not remember more
then 2 or 3 of the random letters shown during the exercises. It was
quite frustrating actually. I felt my memory capacity of a few 10ths of a
second was not enough time for me to remember what I viewed on the
screen. In the partial report test trials it slowly became easier to
grasp and hold on to momentarily. But in the delayed partial report
trails I felt I did even worse.

I would definitely need to practice more of these response tests in
the future to try and better my memory skills at remembering more
letters or numbers then I did. I think improving this type of memory
further could help me in certain aspects of my life, like driving and
remembering street or road signs on the highways. Once I could train my
brain to hold on to such images longer, then I would probably get lost a
lot less, miss exit turn off ramps , etc.

In trying to improve on other types of memory skills I would try
chunking portions of what I see or hear to try and remember them better
or by reciting them aloud as I see or hear them to see if I can extend
my short term memory capacity.
