Explain the modified three-stage processing model of memory
13. Give an example of primary/unconditioned/unlearned reinforcers and secondary/conditioned/learned reinforcers.
Define continuous reinforcement and intermittent reinforcement. List the intermittent schedules of reinforcement and describe when reinforcers are delivered in each and how organisms typically respond under each schedule. Provide an example of each schedule of reinforcement
1. Define memory , short-term memory, long-term memory, sensory memory, explicit memory, implicit memory, procedural memory, declarative memory, episodic memory
2. Explain the modified three-stage processing model of memory (figure 8.4 p. 260) and what occurs during each step
3. Describe the roles of the amygdala and hippocampus in memory storage, also state whether these structures are involved with implicit or explicit memory storage
4. Describe the roles of the cerebellum and prefrontal cortex in memory storage, also state whether these structures are involved with implicit or explicit memory storage
5. Define the three ways that we can test for memory (recall, recognition, relearing) and provide an example of each one
6. Describe how retrieval cues like context-dependent memory, and state-dependent memory can enhance retention
7. Define anterograde amnesia and retrograde amnesia. State the difference between the two.
8. Explain why we may forget information (hint: there are different reasons that we can’t retrieve information)
9. Define and compare proactive interference and retroactive interference
10. Describe the misinformation effect in the context of an example (e.g., car crash)
11. List strategies to help improve our memory/study better (pp. 279-282)
