Cognitive development by Peter Reddy( Visual )

6 editions published between 1972 and 1973 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

(Critical) This program consists of two parts. The first, describing Piagetism ideation of cognitive development, is clearly presented and easily followed. The visual imagery clarifies in a pleasant and concise manner the verbal material. In the second section, which describes the learning theory ideation of cognitive development, the presentation is biased and concepts are not presented in a clear and forceful manner. The teacher-student interaction should exemplify the verbalpresentation of concepts but instead overshadows it. This program could be used to stimulate discussion in a group which has some knowledge of psychological development. In a less knowledgeable group, a leader to amplify and discuss the material would be necessary

Is there such a thing as a perfect recollection or photographic memory? This program examines that question and others related to the brain's ability to store knowledge.

Students also learn how the performance of elite athletes may be tied to muscle memory, which facilitates previously learned actions and circumvents conscious thought. Finally, viewers meet Dr. Lawrence Farwell, the neuroscientist who invented brain fingerprinting-a technology that measures the brain's electrical signals when it references previously stored information
