5 Written questions

5 Matching questions

  1. Consequence of Retrieval
  2. Working memory
  3. Priming
  4. Negative Reinforcement
  5. Semantic judgments
  1. a stimulus is presented → decreases likelihood of behavior
  2. b meaning of words
  3. c active maintenance of information in short term storage
  4. d refers to an enhanced ability to think of a stimulus, such as a word or object, as a result of a recent exposure to the stimulus (implicit memory)
  5. e Retrieval can improve subsequent memory, Retrieval can impair subsequent memory

5 Multiple choice questions

  1. the capacity to distinguish between similar but distinct stimuli
  2. external rewards undermine the intrinsic satisfaction of performing a behavior (children draw pictures and are given external awards vs. children that draw and do not receive external awards. The external awards were taken away and the 1st set of children were less motivated to draw)
  3. stimulus is presented
  4. 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
  5. intrusive recollection of events that we wish we could forget

5 True/False questions

  1. Intermittent Reinforcementthe fact that operant behaviors that are maintained under intermittent reinforcement schedules resist extinction better than those maintained under continuous reinforcement


  2. Implicit memorya network of associated facts and concepts that make up our general knowledge of the world (implicit)


  3. Conditioned responsereflexive reaction that is reliably produced by an unconditioned stimulus (dogs salivation)


  4. Transienceforgetting what occurs with the passage of time → occurs during the storage phase of memory, after it is encoded, but before it is retrieved


  5. Operant Conditioninga type of learning in which the consequences of an organisms behavior determine whether it will be repeated in the future (active behaviors)
