  • Description

About this Course

About the Course

In this course, Dr Dean Burnett (Cardiff University) explores aspects of memory research and theory. In the first lecture, we think about some of the key memory models, including the multistore model of memory and the working memory model. Next, we think about how the nature nurture debate applies to memory, exploring how and why memory differs between individuals. In the third and final lecture, we think about some key methods of studying memory in the laboratory and how that compares in terms of reliability and validity with other forms of memory research.
