Describe, based on what you have learned about memory, what was realistic and inaccurate about the movie’s presentation.

Human Memory

Write a 5–6-page summary of what you learned from three chosen scholarly sources that relate to the memory issue presented in a movie. Explain how the sources relate to what you learned about how memory functions.


To prepare for this assessment, complete the following:

  • Memory issues are common themes for movies, theater productions, and television shows. Select and view one movie that illustrates an important effect of memory. Some possible choices are Memento (2000), 50 First Dates (2004), Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind (2004), The Notebook (2004), and Total Recall (1990).
  • Find at least three scholarly or peer-reviewed sources that address the problem in memory and help you better understand the causes and consequences of the memory issue portrayed in the movie. Think about the accuracy with which a character with a memory condition is portrayed.
  • Research the difference between semantic, episodic, and procedural memory.


For this assessment, complete the following:

  1. Briefly describe the plot of the movie you selected and the main character(s) involved. Explain why you chose the movie in relation to the memory issue of interest, and how the movie illustrates the memory effect of interest (about one paragraph).
  2. Choose three scholarly sources that relate to the memory issue presented in the movie and summarize what you learned. Explain how the sources relate to what you learned about how memory functions.
  3. Describe, based on what you have learned about memory, what was realistic and inaccurate about the movie’s presentation. What would you change in the movie to make it more accurate? What type of memory system was dealt with in the movie (semantic, episodic, or procedural)?
  4. Describe and incorporate the relevant scholarship and theories—what is known about the condition and what the problems or unresolved issues are that have yet to be researched—as it relates to the memory condition presented in the movie.

Strive to be as concise as possible. Limit the length of your completed assessment to 4–5 pages, in addition to the title page and references page. Support your statements and analyses with references and citations from at least three resources.


  • Include a title page and a reference page.
  • Use at least three resources.
  • Follow APA format. Note: You may use the APA Paper Template linked in the Resources. This resource is not required.
  • Use 12-point, Times New Roman font.
