- 1st Posting Due by Day 3. Memory in Older Adulthood. There are two primary approaches to understanding memory: the information-processing perspective and the memory-processing perspective. Compare and contrast these two approaches, and analyze their effectiveness in explaining memory changes in older adults. What do they individually and collectively tell us about memory loss and sensory storage as we age? Is it true that our memories get worse as we age? Support your discussion with one scholarly APA citation (other than the course text). Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
- 1st Posting Due by Day 3. Understanding Dementia. In addition to presenting the factual characteristics of memory loss, Dementia, and Alzheimer’s, your textbook also presents this information from a personal perspective. After reviewing 7-2: An Insider’s Portrait of Alzheimer’s, describe the devastating impact of Dementia and Alzheimer’s in the older adult community. What are the causes of each of these diseases, and how are they distinguishable from “normal” memory decline in old age? Also, review the multi-media video for this week and comment on the physical differences between a healthy brain and an abnormal brain. Identify a minimum of three differences. Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings.
