My Scientific Question: what is the effect of gender on short term memory?
What I did: I found 5 females and 5 males and tested them to memorize 5 playing cards. I repeated this 3 times. gave them 30 seconds to memorize it and 30 seconds to guess. I collected the averages of females and males.
What I learned: I learned a new word called the hippocampus and I also learned that females have better memory than males.a hippocampus is a small region of the brain that forms part of the limbic system and is primarily associated with memory and spatial navigation. The total averages is females was 84% and males 75.96%. I learned that my hypothesis was correct.
