They seem to end up with “too much memory” of the crash, and they cannot get the disturbing scene out of their heads. Similar descriptions apply to a soldier who has been through a horrible battle, or a woman who has been raped. In these cases, it is important that there be some memory. 12). The woman needs to remember her ordeal so that she can give evidence to the police that will lead to the prosecution of the rapist. Even so, the soldier and the rape victim eventually need to move on with their lives, and put the horrors of their experiences behind them.

Dependent variable The variable that is measured or recorded in an experiment. independent variable The variable that the experimenter manipulates as a basis for making predictions about the dependent variable. operational definition to have construct validity—that is, it must truly reflect the variable named in our hypothesis. Thus, for example, we wouldn’t operationalize aggression on the basis of how often someone frowns. This wouldn’t be valid, because sometimes people frown for reasons other than aggression and sometimes they don’t frown when they’re being aggressive.

O individual organism has never in its life seen a snake. It seems, then, that some organisms are prepared, in advance of any learning, to associate bad consequences with the sight of a snake. This response is almost surely a result of our evolutionary past, in which rapid learning about snakes mattered for survival. Amazingly, this pattern of faster learning in response to snake pictures remains in place even if the snake picture, as the warning stimulus, is flashed so quickly on a computer screen that it’s virtually unrecognizable.
