Cognitive Psychology Memory

The final project is meant for you to propose a hypothetical study. You are not and should not be conducting human subjects research for this project. It is not necessary for the purposes of this assignment. All human subjects research requires written approval from the SNHU COCE Institutional Review Board in order to protect the welfare and ensure ethical treatment of the subjects. Overview: For Milestone One, you will submit the topic for your final project and a short introduction. Submit the Milestone One Worksheet. You should build on the ideas from the Module One discussion to select your final topic. Remember to select an area of psychology that you wish to research. For example, you might look at cognitive psychology or developmental psychology. Then, within this field, you will pick a particular area that is of interest to you. For example, within the field of cognitive psychology, you might examine memory in emotional situations. Or, within developmental psychology, you might examine the development of executive functions in kindergartners. Your final topic submission should discuss the area of psychology that you wish to research and provide a discussion of at least two articles that you might use in the literature review section of the introduction. You may use the article that you found to support your topic in the Module One discussion as one of your two articles, or choose two new articles. The articles should be used to support your topic choice and help you explain the different concepts that you will explore in your research. For example, if you are interested in looking at executive functions in kindergartners, you might find two articles that describe prior research on this topic and discuss how the articles are relevant to your topic. What do the articles examine that you might also examine? Or what might be some limitations of the articles that you could address in your research? Specifically the following critical elements must be addressed: I. Introduction A. Identify and briefly summarize the topic related to psychology, which you will study. B. Summarize articles relevant to the topic you want to research. C. Discuss the bias and limitations present in the articles. Support your discussion with specific examples from the articles. D. Discuss the other factors present in the articles that might impact the credibility of those articles. Support your discussion with specific examples from the articles. 1. Explain how the bias and limitations may inform or influence your research. 2. Summarize the research design and methods described in these articles. 3. Discuss the appropriateness of the research design and methods in these articles. Were they appropriate for the research questions and hypotheses? 4. Discuss whether or not the research design and methods in these articles align to the expectations of the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists. Support your discussion with specific examples from the articles. 5. Based on your evaluation of these articles, discuss which research design and methods you feel will be most appropriate for the research you want to conduct. 6. Explain the steps you will take to ensure your research aligns to the expectations of the APA Ethical Principles of Psychologists
