PSYC FPX 3500 Assessment 1 Popular Versus Scholarly Sources

Abstract

The paper aims to analyze the cognitive psychology issue of memory. For the analysis of this issue, the popular media source of the Clive Wearing case is analyzed to highlight the case facts. The paper will highlight the issue of memory impairment, which creates serious health implications for patients. The issue causes difficulty in remembering and storing the information for a longer duration which causes anxiety and anger issues among the patients. The justification of the reliability and relevance of the case facts from the mean of scholarly sources will be used in this paper. The scholarly sources will analyze the memory issues, causes, consequences and treatment strategies in the healthcare industry from a cognitive psychology point of view. The credibility between both sources will also be analyzed in this paper, along with the real-world example of the source. The important question in regard to resources will also be the discussion point in this paper. In the last part, the paper will focus on self-evaluation based on criteria related to each competency to evaluate the skills of the worksheet creator.

Summarize the content of the source using complete sentences in a paragraph of 5–8 sentences.

This source is about the history of a patient suffering from memory issues named Clive Wearing. He was suffering from both forms of amnesia (retrograde and anterograde), which made his condition more vulnerable. Wearing is suffering from memory issues which made it difficult for him to recall and store any information. He could only store information for 30 seconds, and due to this issue, he kept asking for the reason for certain events. Due to this issue, he kept asking why he was not getting any medical assistance. Moreover, he is also curious about his hospital visits. This issue creates a serious impact on Wearing as he becomes furious with people he is greeting due to his lack of capability to remember events and involvement in discussions with them. He also faced issues in recalling his childhood memories and his previous life, which made things complicated for him.
