Views of consciousness and its relationship to short-term memory

Some researchers suggest that there are two prevailing views of consciousness and its relationship to short-term memory. First, there is the view that consciousness—our awareness of the world around us—is beyond or nearly beyond human understanding and is a metaphysical problem best left to the philosophers.

Then there are those, including many psychologists and neuroscientists, who believe there is some relationship between consciousness and short-term memory, even if we have yet to fully understand it.

In this discussion you will analyze current ideas on consciousness and short-term memory. Choose one of the prevailing views discussed above and find a journal article or Internet resource that supports your chosen view. In your initial post:

  1. Describe at least one of the main arguments.
  2. Explain the evidence used by the authors to support their argument.
  3. Identify the author’s conclusions and the implications of the findings.
  4. Based on your perspective and what you have learned, explain your own position about the connection between consciousness and memory.

Please include the following in your response:

  • Refer to and integrate ideas presented in the text and any supplemental readings.
  • Cite outside resources if necessary to make your point.
  • Follow APA style guidelines for citations and references.
