This article/packet includes a proposal that presents that the student is intending to conduct the research on memory encoding by including research questions, a purpose statement, and a problem statement so to give an outline of why such a subject should be researched and/or studied. The literature review is presented secondly as it gives detailed information into the subject of memory, although it summarizes previously published research. Data on Time Decay, certain genes involved in memory encoding, and even experiments replicated from previous researchers are included as well. Lastly, peripheral documents are included as they tie the entire packet together such as the chosen journal publication criteria, the letter to the editor of the journal the author has chosen, and the actual article itself.View pdf
