Here are some details:
I need someone to write 1 single-spaced page or 2 pages if double spaced on Working memory.
This part of the work is ONLY a literature review based on the replication of the research:
Paper: Trait anxiety is associated with a decreased visual working memory capacity for faces
Nisha Yao, Siqi Chen, Mingyi Qian
What would I be testing?
The role of Anxiety/Depression on Working memory’s capacity for facial recognition.
- IV1sex: male/female
- IV2State-trait(measured by anxiety and depression)
- DVworking memory (facial recognition)
Assessing anxiety and depressive levels:
- State-Trait Anxiety Inventory-Trait Scale (STAI-T; Wang et al., 1999)
- Beck Depression Inventory (BDI; Wang et al., 1999)
Twenty-four photographic faces (50% females; Tottenham et al., 2009; Yang et al.,
2011) used as templates
It looks like you can download the images from this site after registering with it. Those are facial images used on different types of research.
You can include the reasons why I decided to use IV sex: male and female (PLEASE do not mention Gender, so it won’t complicate things) by getting some information from:
Just in case link doesn’t work info is below:
Sex Differences in Emotion Recognition and Working Memory Tasks
Saylik, Rahmi.Frontiers in PsychologyVolume: 9 (2018) ISSN: 1664-1078
This is the other paper I think it may help:
The Role of Anxiety and Working Memory in Gender Differences in Mathematics
Journal of Educational Psychology 2014, Vol. 106, No. 1, 105–120
The study is not coping exactly the initial one but is based on looking at how trait anxiety can impactvisual working memory capacity for facial recognition and emotion on those faces.
