教學大綱

情節記憶是個人事件的記憶,語義記憶是獨立於時間和地點的常識。這門課是把情節記憶和語義記憶區分開來的研究。這門課的主要任務是通過(受試者)的日記、定期記錄以及與受試者的朋友和家人的交談,針對每個受試者設計一種情節刺激。此外,第二個任務就是在美國麻省總醫院/醫院管理系統磁共振成像中心協助對這些受試者進行掃描,同時對受試者解釋這項研究,並為對受試者做掃描的準備工作,以及在受試者掃描完成後進行問卷調查工作。一個額外的任務就是製作並派發一份徵募(受試者)的宣傳單。



要求

一共有六次作業,讓未來的研究人員們從一個想法和一個研究問題出發,系統地進行每一個步驟,從資料獲取到分析,直到最後原創作品的發表。這是一門實踐課程,它能夠幫助學生發展一些技能以成長為本領域的未來研究人員。

期末論文長度控制在15到20頁之內,達到能夠在同儕評論期刊上發表的水平。



Description

This course is an investigation to distinguish episodic memory, which is memory of personal events, from semantic memory, which is general knowledge independent of time and place. The major task is to create episodic stimuli, individually tailored for each participant, using diaries and journals, as well as interviews with the participant's friends and family members. Further, a second task is to assist with scanning the participant at MGH/MIT/HMS Martinos Center, explaining the study to the participant, preparing the participant for scanning, and administering a questionnaire after the scanning session. An additional task is to create and distribute a recruiting flyer.



Requirements

There is a sequence of six assignments designed for the future researcher to start from an idea and a research question, and to proceed methodically through each step, from data collection to analysis, and finally to publication of the original work. This is a practical class that helps students develop the tools to become future researchers in the field.

The assignments culminate in a 15- to 20-page final paper of publishable quality in a peer-reviewed journal.
