I thought that I would jump right in on this "prompt" and support the initiation of a discussion on this topic.  In our text (Galotti 2014) writes that "The icon is a sensory memory storage system for visual material, holding information for up to about 1 second" (p. 102). Okay, now that the definition is provided - how does this come into play in our daily lives?  Conduct a little experiment.  Stop what you are doing at some point during the day - and slowly turn in a circle.  After making a full revolution sit down some place safe and close your eyes. After doing this share what occurred - and tie our reading material into how this sensory process involved memory

 

B. Discussion question:   As discussed in the readings assignment for this week, sensory memory is a general term used to refer to sensory buffers that can retain a large amount of memory, but only for a short period of time.

Personality type (for the curious navigate tohttp://humanmetrics.com/cgi-win/JTypes2.asp) also plays a critical role.  Take five minutes and share what your type is with us!  You may find that it has a direct impact on how each of us processes emotional content! For example - If I fall in love, don't I 'obsess' over the object that I have fallen in love with? As a result, won't I 'think' about that thing over and over and...you get the point. There is a whole lot of thinking (cognition) going on over certain things - perhaps due to it being emotionally charged - than over other things. Any thoughts? - This is a psycho-active section (will stir things up
