Previous poll results: Which is the WORST study habit?
b
Correct: H.M. was unable to form new memories after his brain surgery, resulting in anterograde amnesia. He could recall events from his long past, and his short-term memory was still intact.
Which of the following best explains what seems to happen in anterograde amnesia?
a. Information from the distant past is forgotten.
b. The ability to form memories after the brain surgery is seriously impaired.
c. There is a failure to recall any events prior to the brain trauma.
d. Memories from the distant past interfere with subsequent memories.
b
Correct: H.M. was not able to form declarative long-term memories after the removal of his hippocampus. From this, researchers were able to conclude that the hippocampus was instrumental in the formation of new long-term memories.
The surgical removal of H.M.’s hippocampus prevented him from transferring information from
a. non-declarative memory to semantic memory.
b. short-term memory to long-term memory.
c. iconic memory to acoustic memory.
d. sensory memory to short-term memory.
a
Correct: State-dependent learning occurs when we recall information best when we return to the state we were in at the time we first learned it. We recall sad memories when we are depressed. As we return to the state of depression, we are likely to remember those sad memories more readily than others who do not experience depression.
Compared to non-depressed people, depressed persons tend to remember
a. more sad memories.
b. more pleasant memories.
c. more memories about early childhood.
d. more memories.
a
Correct: State-dependent learning occurs when we recall information best when we return to the state we were in at the time we first learned it. Since we associate grief with the loss of a loved one, when we experience grief over another loss, it is likely this return to the state of grief will remind us of our loved one again.
When people feel grief over the death of someone close to them, they may be reminded of other times of great loss. This type of memory is known as
a. state-dependent memory.
b. grief memory.
c. contextual memory.
d. collateral memory.
a
Correct: Anxiety appears to affect memory more than other emotions do.
The emotion that appears to affect memory most is
a. anxiety.
