The stimulus for the assessment questions is based on the concentric star experiment performed by HM. I’m sure you’re familiar with this experiment, but just in case you’re not… HM had his hippocampus removed to cure his epilepsy, however, it destroyed his ability to form new episodic and semantic memories. He performed an experiment where he was required to draw between the lines of concentric stars using only his reflection in a mirror (a tricky task). He got better at the task despite not remembering having ever done it. It provided evidence for a third type of long term memory - procedural, often referred to as ‘muscle memory’.
I usually use narrow margins for my Word documents, so if the formatting seems a bit out, then change the margins to narrow. If you have any problems with the resources, please contact me on Twitter @blonde_pretzel or via my YouTube channel called Psychology Students.
