Transcript of Science Fair
The theoretical framework of this study is the human neurological system . According to researcher Soledad Ballesteros memory is a psychological process that is used for storing encoded information. Indicates that possibly the most important to human is the ability to store experiences and to benefit from these experiences in their future performance. The mechanisms governing the operation of this psychological process work with such a degree of perfection that only a sane person realizes that all his actions and verbal communications rely on the correct functioning of memory.

What gender (male or female) are more retentive in teenagers?
Theoretical Framework Cont.
Subsequently Forns and Amador in 1995, after several studies consider that they are three basic procedures used to assess memory. These are , recognition, free recall and cued recall . To evaluate people in recognition process, they are presented with several objects, pictures, or words to identify among alternatives. A series of stimulation are presented in the tasks assessing free recall and the person should play after the presentation, in the order you prefer. Moreover, in the cued recall a series of signals that have some sort of connection with the information to remember , and which serve to guide and facilitate the process of retrieval of information provided.

I think that females are more retentive because normally in a house (where a whole family lives; mom, dad, and kids) the woman does most of the work, therefore she must remember what she needs to do. Also young girls that help their mothers to do the house work need to remember things. That is the reason I think that females have more retention.
Teenagers are able to develop an optimal deductive reasoning by which, from a logical inference rule are removed, as Byrnes 1988. The development of memory will be greatly influenced by study habits , learning methodology and education, as well as the enormous cultural dependence on the environment where the teen lives . In addition, family and the influence of peers and friends. Including the ability of teachers to make them attractive and motivate them to study the materials , according to Midgley and Cols .
First, I made 3 collages with small pictures of different magazines and search for 3 different tongue-twisters.
Search for people with 14-20 years old (5 man and 5 women)
Show the tongue-twister for 30 seconds and then the person have to write what they remember in a line paper.
Show one collage for 30 seconds where they have to memorize all they can and then tell me what they remember. I will be marking on a list everything they remember.
Step 3 and 4 I will be repeating two more times and at the end I will calculate what they got wrong in the tongue-twister and count the imagines they remember.
1- Poquito a poquito Paquito empaca poquitas copitas en pocos paquetes.
2- Un tubo tiro un tubo y otro tubo lo detuvo, hay tubos que tienen tubos pero este tubo no tuvo tubo.
3- Han dicho que he dicho un dicho, tal dicho no lo he dicho yo. Porque si yo hubiera dicho el dicho, bien dicho habria estado el dicho por haberlo dicho yo.
Independent Variable: people choose (5 women & 5 men)
Dependent Variable: results of each person
Control Variable: time (30 secs.)
In conclusion, according to my data, shows that women are 4.6% more retentive than men. In testing twisters women obtained 51.9% and men 43.2%, this means that the women had 8.7% more than men. While in the test images were women have a 31.7% and men 23.9%, which means that women are 7.8% more than men. Memory exercises could increase the retention of human beings. Considering that this study was conducted in an average age from 14 to 20 years, there would be a chance that another stage of development mindfulness may be different from the findings of this study. In the long run I would be interested to try it by doing this test for children and adults.
