5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Discrimination
  2. State dependant retrieval
  3. Flashbulb memories
  4. Negative Punishment
  5. Elaborative encoding
  1. a detailed recollections of when and where we heard about shocking events
  2. b the capacity to distinguish between similar but distinct stimuli
  3. c the 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
  4. d the tendency for information to be better recalled when the person is in the same state during encoding and retrieval
  5. e stimulus is removed → decreases likelihood of behavior

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. states that memory is likely to transfer from one situation to another when encoding context of the situations match
  2. process of keeping information in short term memory by repeating it
  3. reflexive reaction that is reliably produced by an unconditioned stimulus (dogs salivation)
  4. the process of storing new information by converting it into mental pictures → visual processing regions in the occipital lobe → people enlist the visual system when forming memories based on mental images
  5. Little Albert → presented with stimuli (white rat, then loud bar to make him cry)

5 True/False questions

  1. Intermittent Reinforcementwhen only some of the responses made are followed by reinforcement


  2. Operant ConditioningLittle Albert → presented with stimuli (white rat, then loud bar to make him cry)


  3. Procedural memoryrefers to the gradual acquisition of skills as a result of practice or "knowing how" to do things (implicit memory)


  4. Semantic memoryholds sensory information for a few seconds or less


  5. Learningacquisition of new knowledge, skills, or responses from experience that result in a relatively permanent change in the state of the learner
