5 Multiple Choice Questions

  1. stimulus is removed → increases likelihood of behavior

  5. earlier learning impairs memory for information acquired later

5 True/False Questions

  1. Rehearsalany stimulus or event that functions to increase the likelihood of the behavior that led to it


  2. Organizational encodingthe process of actively relating new information to knowledge that is already in memory (helps with long term retention) (ex. Remembering 20 experiences rather than 20 #s) → lower left part of frontal lobe and inner part of left temporal lobe → more activity in these areas results in being more likely to remember it


  3. Second-Order Conditioningconditioning 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)


  4. Memory consolidationmemories can become vulnerable to disruption when they are recalled, thus requiring them to be consolidated again


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