Two questions

Two Questions

  • If extraction of generalizations depends on gradual learning, how do we form generalizations and inferences shortly after initial learning?

  • Why do some studies find evidence consistent with the view that an intact MTL facilitates certain types of generalization in memory?


Relational theory of memory eichenbaum cohen

Relational Theory of Memory (Eichenbaum & Cohen)

  • Proposes that elements of related memories become linked within the same memory trace, and that the formation of such linkages is a critical function of the MTL.


Remerge recurrence and episodic memory results in generalization

REMERGE: Recurrence and Episodic Memory Results in Generalization

  • Holds that several MTL based item representations may work together through recurrent activation

  • Draws on classic exemplar models (Medin & Shaffer, 1978; Nosofsky, 1984)

  • Extends these models by allowing similarity between stored items to influence performance, independent of direct activation by the probe (McClelland, 1981)

  • Demonstrates the strong dependence of some forms of generalization and inference on the strength of learning for trained items

Discussion

Discussion

  • As we’ve known for quite some time

    • Generalization and Inference can be supported by exemplar models

  • Should we, then, simply abandon the complementary learning theory, and just make it exemplars all the way down?

  • I think not –

    • Cortical learning supports changes in the ‘features’ that serve as the basis for exemplar learning

    • And clearly, retrograde amnesia studies support = an MTL basis for recent memory= a neocortical basis for remote memory

  • A future challenge is to develop an fully integrated neuro-computational theory of memory integrating MTL and neocortical influences
