Chapter I
Introduction

A. Background of the Study "Forgetfulness is accepted as a natural part of getting older, but it might not have to be. Scientists say they have identified an important biological mechanism in the brain that underlies the sorts of memory lapses that come with age"(Goldman,2009).

Over the past century, the mice have developed into the premier mammalian model system for research. Scientists from a wide range of biomedical fields have gravitated to the mice because of its close genetic and physiological similarities to humans, as well as the ease with which its memory can be manipulated and analyzed.

As a result, scientist conducted research on how to improve the memory of the mice using transitional medicines, drugs and many more. In Columbia, Stephen Small studied about the effects of virus that contained genetic material that boosted production of the protein to improve the memory of mice. They were able to find out that mice have memory lapses called RbA48 deficiencies when they get old. Some studies that is related on improving the memory of the mice are currently conducted in America and Great Britain. There are also some scientist from the Philippines who conducted the same study. Aside from using drugs, the researchers of this study would like to know if Memory Plus Gold powdered capsule can also be an effective memory enhancer for the mice thus memory plus contains Gingco binoba and Bacopa monniera that helps on improving the memory of ones living organisms.

Moreover, this can help the veterinarians here in the Philippines having a hard time with their mice due to misbehavior because of memory lapses. Hence mice do not get Alzheimer’s, but they do experience memory decline as they age. This study will be the answer to the memory problem of the mice.

B. Statement of the Problem

This study aims to determine whether Memory Plus Gold Powdered Capsule can be an effective memory enhancer for white mice (Mus musculus). The researchers also want to clarify if there is a significant difference on white mice’s memory before and after the intake of the Memory Plus Gold Powdered Capsule in terms of the speed of the white mice in finding the food.

C. Objectives of the Study
This study aims to achieve the objectives:
1. To determine whether the memory plus gold powdered capsule can be an effective memory enhancer for white mice.
2. To determine the significant difference of the memory of white mice before and after the intake of Memory Plus Gold.

5 D. Significant of the Study
The primary beneficiaries of this study are the citizens of the Philippines especially veterinarians and pet shop entrepreneur. This study can give the readers the knowledge that not only humans can improve their memory but also mice can.
The use of memory plus gold powdered capsule can prevent the risk of the memory lapses of a certain white mice. E. Hypothesis of the Study

There is no significant effect on the memory of white mice before and after the intake of Memory Plus Gold Powdered Capsule.

6
F. Scope and Delimitations
The memory plus gold capsule were bought from the United Pharmacy at Gov. Ramos Street, Sta. Maria Zamboanga City. The white mice were bought from Renz’s Pet shop fronting the Safety Enterprises, Canelar, Zamboanga City The research was conducted at Laureano's Residence located at Saavedra Compound, Lower Cabatangan, Zamboanga City.
The experiment has two (2) different treatments and three (3) replicates to ensure the accuracy of the results. The experiment lasted for five (5) days from March 2, 2015 to March 6, 2015 which includes the preparation and gathering of the materials and testing.
To compute for the significant effect of the memory plus gold powdered capsule for the improvement of the memory of white mice T-test for two Independent sample at 5% level of significance was used to measure the statistical significance of the data. Thus, this study is only tested and proven for mice. There were no other species used aside from white mice.

G. Definition of Terms 1. Memory Plus Gold refers to a natural memory enhancer and brain power builder. It is formulated from the extract of Bacopa monniera (commonly known as Brahmi) developed and patented by the Central Drug Research Institute (CDRI) in India. It facilitates learning, improves consolidation of learned behavior and delays its extinction by enhancing protein kinase activity and new protein synthesis, particularly in brain cells related to memory. 2. Memory Lapses refers to minor failure of memory slip. 3. White Mice refers to any of numerous small rodent of various families, having small ears and a long thin tail ,esp. an Old World mouse, Mus musculus, introduced worldwide. 4. Alzheimer's Disease refers to a disease of brain that causes people to slowly lose their memory and mental abilities as they grow old.

Chapter V
SUMMARY, CONCLUSION, FINDINGS, AND RECOMMENDATION

A. Summary This study aimed to determine whether Memory plus Gold Powdered Capsule can be used as a memory enhancer for white mice which includes two different treatments (First treatment is not introduced with Memory Plus Gold while the second treatment is introduced with it). The study employed the experimental method wherein it includes gathering materials, acquisition of mice, labeling of mice, maze testing for both treatments before the introduction of Memory Plus Gold, Introduction of Memory Plus Gold to treatment no.2, maze testis for both treatments after the introduction of Memory Plus Gold, and observation. The study made used of T-test for Two Independent Sample at 5% level of significance to compute for the statistical significance of the results. The results showed that Memory Plus Gold can be an effective memory enhancer for white mice. In addition, white mice that were introduced with memory plus gold were faster in finding the food inside the maze.

27
Findings
The following were the major findings of the study: 1. Memory plus gold is an effective memory enhancer for white mice thus it enhances well the memory of white mice. 2. There is a significant difference on white mice’s memory before and after the intake of the Memory Plus Gold Powdered Capsule in terms of the speed of the white mice in finding the food.

B. Conclusion
Based on the findings of the study, the researchers therefore conclude that Memory Plus Gold created from Bacopa monniera enhances the memory of the mice in terms of their ability to solve the maze, to navigate, and to search for food. The plant Bacopa monniera highly contributed in the effectiveness of the drug, from which this is supported by the big difference in the speed of white mice introduced with Memory Plus Gold and with no Memory Plus Gold implied that it has the potential to be a memory enhancer, specifically for the mice. The speed was not also consistent, because based from the gathered data, the more times the mice were exposed in the maze the faster they were. Also with each day mice introduced with no Memory Plus Gold tend to go to the exit of the maze faster, rather than the mice with no Memory Plus Gold introduced. From which it can also be said the speed of the mice also dependent on the amount of Memory Plus Gold given to the mice. 28 C. Recommendations For further studies related to this research, the researchers recommended that a comparison of different amounts of Memory Plus Gold be tested. Also, using other animals aside from white mice. The researchers also recommend to use more complicated maze and other products or methods that could possible enhance the memory of animals or white mice. Since the researchers used basic equipment throughout the study, it is recommended that for future studies use more advanced materials and laboratory apparatuses.

Memory

...MEMORY Memory is one of the most important concepts in learning; if things are not remembered, no learning can take place. Futhermore, memory has served as a battleground for opposing theories and paradigms of learning (e.g., Adams, 1967; Ashcraft, 1989; Bartlett, 1932; Klatzky, 1980; Loftus & Loftus, 1976; Tulving & Donaldson, 1972). Some of the major issues include recall versus recognition, the nature of forgetting (i.e., interference versus decay), the structure of memory, and intentional versus incidental learning. According to the early behaviorist theories (e.g., Thorndike, Guthrie, Hull), remembering was a function of S-R pairings which acquired strength due to contiguity or reinforcement. Stimulus sampling theory explained many memory phenomenon on the basis of statistical outcomes. On the other hand, cognitive theories (e.g., Tolman) insisted that meaning (i.e., semantic factors) played an important role in remembering. In particular, Miller suggested that information was organized into "chunks" according to some commonality. The idea that memory is always an active reconstruction of existing knowledge was championed by Bruner and is found in the theories of Ausubel and Schank. Some theories of memory have concerned themselves with the nature of the processing. Paivio suggests a dual coding scheme for verbal and visual information. Craik & Lockhart proposed that information can be processed to different levels of understanding. Rumelhart & Norman describe three...

The Benefits and Uses of Virtual Memory

...The Benefits and Uses of Virtual Memory Marcia Amnay POS/355 Steven Kernan April 22nd, 2013 The Benefits and Uses of Virtual Memory This paper will discuss the benefits and uses of virtual memory. Programs require memory to start and run on computers. When several jobs are being processed at the same time, the operating system must keep track of how the computer’s memory and make sure there is enough. Computers come with a limited amount of random access memory which is known as RAM. RAM is the main memory on a computer. If a user is running multiple applications at the same time, the RAM on it will not be enough to execute the processes. This is when virtual memory comes in and balances the process. Virtual memory is a memory management technique. Virtual memory is secondary memory that can act as if it were part of the main memory. When the RAM is used up, virtual memory places data by using the hard disk or another disk of some kind for space. The hard disk is much slower then RAM so the more virtual memory used, the slower your computer will run. The computer will look for areas on the RAM that are not in use and copy it to the hard disk to free up space on the RAM. Virtual memory keeps ‘active’ process in the RAM and keeps the ‘inactive’ processes on the address space on the disk. When an ‘inactive’ process is needed, it will bring that process back to the RAM from the disk. This process is running in the background without the user being......

Genetic Enhancement

...Giving the Worse-off a Voice in the Debate about Genetic Enhancement Technology Unlike a few years ago, when conceiving a baby girl or a baby boy was a matter of chance, today's prospective parents can choose to alter the genetic make-up of their children in order to enhance their offspring's well-being in the future. Recent advances in the field of genetics can now help people to become parents, and even allow them to choosing the sex of their baby. In March 2009, the BBC reported that a couple in California, Kristen and Matt Landon, have used genetic testing techniques to select the sex of their daughter at a fertility clinic in Los Angeles. As researchers learn new ways to manipulate genes, they plan to take things a step further by offering what some are calling "designer babies". The term “designer babies” refers to a baby whose genetic makeup has been artificially selected by genetic engineering combined with in vitro fertilization (the joining of a woman's egg and a man's sperm in a laboratory) to ensure the presence or absence of particular genes or characteristics. Dr. Jeffrey Steinberg, a pioneer in in-vitro fertilization and director of Los Angeles Fertility Institute, said that he “would predict that by next year, we will have determined sex with 100 percent certainty on a baby, and we will have determined eye color with about an 80 percent accuracy rate."

This immune system includes lymphatic organs and vessels, lymph nodes, white blood cells, specialized cells and serum factors. The immune system utilizes both the lymphatic vessels and the blood circulatory system to transport white blood cells called lymphocytes through out the body (1). The immune system can be classified as an innate or adaptive system. As a first line of defense against pathogens, we depend on innate immunity. Innate immunity is nonspecific and includes physical barriers such as skin, mucous membranes and secretions with antimicrobial activity including tears and mucous. Pathogens that cross this line of defense are often destroyed by phagocytes which are white blood cells that engulf and digest cellular debris and foreign agents by the process known as phagocytosis. However, innate immunity is not sufficient to ward off all invaders. Thus, to allow for a stronger immune response and immunological memory, we have developed a specific, inducible system of defense called the adaptive or acquired immune......

From the discovery of vaccination to the discovery of antibiotics, each medical breakthrough highlighted the success of humans in dealing with the prevailing medical issues of that time. With the discovery of the structure of DNA by Crick and Watson in the early 1950s, the focus on medical research has shifted to the understanding of the genetic cause of a particular disease. Because of this, we are now able to understand the pathophysiology behind much of the diseases that has been a mystery to us before. An example of this is cancer, which was initially untreatable, but now thanks to our ever improving understanding of the genetic and biochemical mechanisms of the disease we are almost a step closer to achieving a reliable cure. In order to understand the progression of a particular disease accurately, scientists need to recreate the symptoms in a controlled environment (e.g. a laboratory) within a living organism. Such organisms are known as model organisms, because they serve as a live model which allows us to explore the workings of the disease. Due to various ethical issues, using humans as model organisms are out of the question, so......

The door is made of very sturdy wood causing it to be heavy. At waist level of the door there is a keyhole in the doorknob and as I slide my key in I notice the several scratches on it caused by the countless of times when I accidentally miss the keyhole. As I slowly open the door, one first notices the barren cement walls that have been painted white. The carpeted floor has a grey checked design that fills the floor around the entire room. To the right there is a full length mirror carefully stucked to the wall with 3M tape. With that being the main reason why every time I look at it, the uncertainty of it falling to the floor overcomes over me. Below lies a shoe rack containing shoes made for every casual to formal occasion, from orange rubber slippers to the shiniest gold glittered ballet flats that blind you with one look. I turn to my left and I see a spectrum of rainbow colored clothes hanging from uniform black hangers bursting out of the closet. They are arranged so neatly that suffice to say any mum would be proud. Below them are two white and black laundry baskets for the easy sorting of light and dark colored clothes.

Explore the Ways in Which Steinbeck and Miller Make Use of Setting and Locations in ‘of Mice and Men’ and ‘Death of a Salesman’

...contemporary America, following the Wall Street Crash. Both authors have their own ways of conveying an image, Miller uses stage directions to illustrate important settings whilst Steinbeck implements evocative vocabulary to carefully describe each significant location to the reader. Miller’s first description portrays Brooklyn, the setting of the Loman household with a gentle flute melody playing in the background, ‘it is small and fine, telling of grass and trees and the horizon’. The house is described as being ‘small and fragile-seeming’ with ‘towering angular shapes behind it, surrounding it on all sides’. This detailed description conveys to the reader that there is a sense of claustrophobia and inferiority, suggesting that this house is out of place in the daunting city. The opening location of Steinbeck’s ‘Of Mice and Men’ serves as a foil to ‘Death of a Salesman’, as it outlines the beauty of the Salinas River in rural California. There are however some links between the two introductions; the Salinas River is described as ‘twinkling over the yellow sands in the moonlight’, which directly opposes the description of Brooklyn ‘an angry glow of orange’ in scene one of ‘Death of a Salesman’. Rural California seems to be a very still and peaceful place where wildlife such as rabbits, raccoons and deer are able to thrive amongst ‘sycamores with mottled, white, recumbent limbs and branches that arch over the pool’. Steinbeck then describes the Gabilan Mountains......

...Technology is use of science in industry to invent useful things or to solve a problem it use to communicate or entertain people. One of the invention for this generation now is playing digital games it is a popular pastime for others and it is a part of people’s daily life. The digital games can further expand the knowledge of users. In this game it is all about four pictures related to a certain anime which the user will guess. The user’s need to recall everything to answer the question and to go to the next level of the game. This is also one way to remember things through this application. It is about using pictures in order to retrieve memories connected to it and one process that makes use of pictures is called picture superiority effect. Most studies of the picture superiority effect have involved tests of memory for the occurrence of individual events, such as recall in which is the main objective of this study. If pictures however, receive complete semantic processing than words, this difference in processing could be an advantage for both memory of the individual pictures and for associations formed between pairs of random pictures.

Memory

...Learning and Memory Humans are continually learning, storing and coding raw information that is sent to us from our sensory registers from the outside world. Because of such an overload of stimuli thrown at us, it is vital and necessary to learn as infants and throughout our lives how to store and process this information. We learn to pay attention to some material, while other data is filtered out immediately. Researchers have spent enormous amounts of time studying the different types of memory: short-term memory, long-term memory, procedural memory and declarative memory. Because the only way we survive, evolve and learn new skills and talents is by developing our minds and adapting to the ever changing demands of life. What scientists have discovered is that learning requires attention, coding and storing of past memories and experiences. In order to live healthy and happy lives, we can stimulate and encourage learning throughout our entire lifetime from infancy to late adulthood providing that our brain is biologically healthy and intact. Most important, scientists are now studying what simple changes can be made to stave off such diseases such as Dementia and Alzheimer’s. The only kind of memory that the world has ever been able to agree on is that one which saves occurrences from the past. Even more limiting is a methodical notion in which the procedure that creates memory (learning) is identified by the modification of the actions of an individual who...

Memory

...The reason I chose memory was because memory is something everyone use every day on the daily basis. Memory is one of the most fascinating topics you can ever hope to study in any field. It is a fundamental component of daily life. We rely on it so heavily, that it is not a stretch to say that life without memory would be close to impossible. Our very survival depends on our ability to remember who we are, who others are, our past experiences, what is dangerous, what is safe, etc. Its importance can't be understated. Memory is also composed of a complex set of modular processes, dynamically shaped by past experience, which organize ongoing experience. What we have experienced with people in the past has a profound influence on how we will experience our interactions with them, and with other people, in the future, yet the precise roles that different memory systems play in these processes have yet to be elucidated. Short-term memory involves a temporary synaptic modification, presumably consisting of transient alterations in the concentration, binding, or uptake of various neuro transmitter substances. Short-term synaptic enhancement refers to a model of such short-term memory processes, and it suggests a way that neurochemical activity might briefly maintain memories by modifying the synapse for brief periods of time. The mechanisms mediating STE appear to occur primarily in the presynaptic neuron, perhaps involving an increased number of synaptic vesicles releasing......

After we had eaten dinner and cleared the table we would sit on Grandma’s huge couch with the itchy brown fabric. We’d fidget around, casting furtive glances out of the living room window. As the first pink glow from the sunset started we’d cheer and tell Grandma it was time. She would always tell us to give her a few minutes. “Preparations need to be made!” After what seemed like an eternity, Grandma would call us into the kitchen.
