0.The visual receptors in the eyes called ___________ function best in dim lighting and are primarily black-and-white brightness receptors.
Making a grocery list and taking notes for a class are both examples of _____________, which refers to encoding that is initiated intentionally and requires conscious attention.
- effortful processing
- automatic processing
- maintenance rehearsal
- state-dependent memory
If I present you with the word “BOOK” and ask you if this word contains all lowercase letters, answering this question involves the use of ___________ encoding.
A person uses the term “HOMES” to remember the names of the Great Lakes (Huron, Ontario, Michigan, Erie, Superior). This memory-enhancing technique is best viewed as an example of:
- maintenance rehearsal.
- the use of hierarchies.
- an acronym.
In the case of the amnesia patient H.M. presented in the text, it was found that:
- his declarative memory and procedural memory were severely impaired.
- his procedural memory functioned normally but his declarative memory was severely impaired.
- his episodic memory functioned normally but his semantic memory and procedural memory were severely impaired.
- his semantic memory functioned normally but his episodic memory and procedural memory were severely impaired.
Fill-in-the-blank questions, true or false questions, and essay questions allow professors to assess your:
- procedural memory
- episodic memory
- implicit memory
- semantic memory.
Research has found that self-generating many retrieval cues is a technique that facilitates memory. It is assumed that this type of processing facilitates encoding by:
- making the information more declarative.
- limiting the impact of retroactive interference.
- providing deeper and more elaborative processing.
- making use of state-dependent learning effects.
Imagine that you have studied for an exam in a noisy environment and your state of physiological arousal has been low while you were studying. If on the day of the exam you were given the test in a quiet environment and your physiological arousal was high (due to test anxiety), the concept of state-dependent memory would predict that your recall would be __________ and the concept of context-dependent memory would predict that your recall would __________.
- worse; also be worse
- better; be worse
- worse; be better
- better; also be better
Retroactive interference is said to occur when ____________ material in memory interferes with the recall of ____________ material.
- older; newly acquired
- older; other older
- newly acquired; other newly acquired
- newly acquired; older
___________ amnesia is said to occur when memory loss occurs for events that happened prior to the onset of the amnesia.
When you enter a nice restaurant, you typically expect that a host or hostess will seat you, that you will receive a menu before you order, and that you will receive a bill at the conclusion of the meal. These thoughts together are best considered to be an example of:
- a retrieval cue.
- a schema.
