Lesson 22 Spread Activation
1) How are concepts represented in spreading activation model? : netlike association structures, concepts are represented as nodes
2) How are concepts organized in memory as a network? : nodes and connections
3) What does the meaning of a concept depend on? : context to which it is connected
4) What is the difference between nodes and association? : nodes are concepts and associations are links between nodes
5) What happens when we process a concept? : its node is activated

5) What is an example of a script? : a sequence, having an idea of how things should happen, and the order in which they should happen when you go to a restaurant

Lesson 19 Deliberate and Intentional Forgetting
1) What is directed forgetting? : the idea that sometimes we want/need to forget
2) What is an example of directed forgetting? : imagine if we had to remember every place we have ever parked our car, just need to remember where it is parked now
3) Can we will ourselves to forget? Proof? : yes, subjects told to forget, they do
4) What is the part-set cuing effect? : idea that if you are presented some information during retrieval it will affect how much you can actually retrieve
5) What are the 2 types of part-set cuing? : facilitation and impairment

Lesson 18 Interference and Inhibition
1) What does decay theory tell us about forgetting? : it is inevitable and will happen over time, like a nail rusts
2) What is interference? : the idea that the more associations we make with a certain cue the harder it will be to retrieve the correct memory
3) What is the brown-peterson paradigm? : subjects were asked to learn a trigram and then count backwards by 7, after 20 seconds they could not recall the information
4) What does the brown-peterson paradigm suggest? : that as you are thinking about information you will remember, but once you stop you forget.
5) What is wrong with the decay theory and brown-peterson paradigm? : time doesn't cause nail to rust, outside elements does and time doesn't cause a memory to be damaged

Lesson 17 Remembering and Forgetting
1) What are cues? : information in our current environment that can trigger our memory of past events
2) What is an example of cue-dependent recall? : Bizzie tells me a story from when she was in high school and she made the game winning goal in lacrosse and I am reminded of when I made a buzzer beater
3) What do cues depend on? : the retrieval task
4) What is the cue in free/serial recall? : context
5) How is the cue used in free/serial recall? : probe memory with context and try to retrieve information experienced in that context

Lesson 16 Memory as a Process
1) Which theories covered talk about encoding? : LOP, TAP, and ESP
2) Which theories covered talk about retrieval? (STEM) : single and dual process, TAP, ESP, Modal model
3) According to the different theories, what determines what will be remembered? : modal = rehearsal, LOP = deep vs. shallow, TAP = usefulness for future, ESP = context during encoding and test, single = items higher in strength

Lesson 15 Encoding Specificity
1) What is the encoding specificity principle? : The idea that we are more likely to retrieve information if we are in the same context as when we encoded it
2) What is an example of encoding specificity? : if I take my test in complete silence I should also study in complete silence
3) What other theory is encoding specificity related to? : TAP
4) How is TAP related to encoding specificity principle? : Both emphasize the relationship between processing that occurs at encoding or learning of the information and processing that occurs at retrieval or the test
5) What is the difference between TAP and encoding specificity principle? : ESP = environment of learning matches environment as test, TAP = type of questions at test match type of questions you use to review

Lesson 14 Transfer Appropriate Processing
1) What does TAP theory say and how does it differ from LOP theory? : LOP theory says that how information is processed is important (i.e. deep processing) while TAP theory says information is remembered better when it is appropriate for the future or next task
2) What is the Morris, Bransford, and Franks study in relation to TAP? : participants were divided into two groups. Grp 1 had to fill in a sentence with the appropriate word, while Grp 2 had to say which target word rhymed with the word already presented. Results showed that whatever context the group was tested in, they did better when they were tested. sentence did better in standard recognition and rhyming did better in rhyming task
3) how can TAP help improve learning in real life? : TAP tells us we learn better in the way we will be tested, so if we know we have a multiple choice test coming up we should review beforehand with multiple choice questions.
