5 Matching questions

  1. Second-Order Conditioning
  2. Intermittent Reinforcement
  3. NMDA receptor
  4. Chunking
  5. Retrograde amnesia
  1. a combining small pieces of information into large clusters or chunks
  2. b influences the flow of information between neurons by controlling the initiation of LTP in most hippocampal pathways → hippocampus contains an abundance of NMDA receptors that must be activated 1. presynaptic or "sending" neuron releases a neurotransmitter called glutmate which attaches to the NMDA receptor site on the post-synaptic or "receiving" neuron 2. excitation takes place in the post-synaptic neuron
  3. c inability to retrieve information that was acquired before a particular date, usually the date of an injury or operation
  4. d when only some of the responses made are followed by reinforcement
  5. e conditioning where the stimulus of that functions as the US is actually the CS from an earlier procedure in which it acquired its ability to produce learning (paired black square w/ tone → dogs salivate)

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. meaning of words
  2. a network of associated facts and concepts that make up our general knowledge of the world (implicit)
  3. stimulus is removed → increases likelihood of behavior
  4. stimulus is presented → decreases likelihood of behavior
  5. when a neutral stimulus produces a response after being paired with a stimulus that naturally produces a response

5 True/False questions

  1. Variable Ratiodelivery of reinforcement is based on a particular average number of responses


  2. Positivestimulus is presented


  3. Conditioned stimulussomething that reliably produces a naturally occurring reaction in an organism (plate of food)


  4. Overjustification effectbehaviors that are followed by a "satisfying state of affairs" tend to be repeated and those that produce an "unpleasant state of affairs" are less likely to be repeated


  5. Short term memoryholds non sensory information for more than a few seconds but less than a minute
