Semantic episodic memory l.jpg
Semantic & Episodic Memory

  • What evidence would show that Semantic and Episodic Memory are distinct and independent systems?

  • Amnesia

    • One memory system damaged.

    • One memory system intact.



Encoding specificity l.jpg
Encoding Specificity

  • Memory retrieval is enhanced under conditions similar to the conditions at encoding.

  • Roediger & Payne (1983)

    • Homographs (squash)

    • Studied as “Sports” or “Vegetables”

      • Sports: Soccer, Squash, Basketball…

      • Vegetables: Potatoes, Squash, Carrots…

Schemas l.jpg
Schemas

  • Large unit of representation that organizes relations among concepts, situations, events, and/or actions in memory.

  • Jane heard the jingling of the ice cream truck. She ran to get her piggy bank and started to shake it. Finally some money came out.


Schemas15 l.jpg
Schemas

  • How old is Jane

  • Why did she get the money?

  • Did she turn her piggy bank upside down?

  • Did bills come out?

  • How big was the piggy bank?

  • Where was the piggy bank located?


Scripts l.jpg
Scripts

  • Script: “A knowledge structure containing the sequence of events that usually occurs in a particular common situation.”

    • Going to the Dentist

    • Going to a Restaurant

    • Taking an Exam


Schemas scripts implications l.jpg
Schemas & Scripts: Implications

  • Integration: Info from specific events combined with general knowledge

    • Experience shapes scripts

    • Scripts guide recall

  • Advantages & Disadvantages

  • Implications for Episodic-Semantic distinction?

Implicit memory l.jpg

Right Ear:

Essay, asked to shadow

Left Ear:

Homophone word pairs (son/sun)

First word biased the interpretation (youngest/rising)

“rising sun… taxi fare…”

Implicit Memory


Implicit memory20 l.jpg
Implicit Memory

  • Asked to

    • Summarize essay

    • Recognition test for shadowed words/homophones

    • Oral spelling test including homophones

      • “sun… fare…”

  • Spelling primed w/o subject awareness

Subception l.jpg
Subception

  • Greenwald et al. (1991)

  • Subliminal learning, self-help, etc.

  • Used 2 commercially available tapes

    • Memory, Self Esteem

  • Design

    • Pretest: Mem, S-E

    • Given a tape, listened daily for month

    • Posttest: Mem, S-E, Self ratings on Improvement



Greenwald et al results l.jpg
Greenwald et al., Results

  • Self-improvement ratings corresponded to tape label.

  • Test scores improved on both measures.

  • Improvement unrelated to content of tapes.


Memory content knowledge l.jpg
Memory & Content Knowledge

  • Chi (1978)

  • Child chess experts

  • Adult chess novices

  • Memory for

    • Chess positions

    • Digit span


Long term memory summary l.jpg
Long Term Memory: Summary

  • Semantic Memory

    • Hierarchical Networks

    • Spreading Activation

  • Episodic Memory

    • Classic Effects (primacy, recency, etc.)

    • Eyewitness Testimony

  • Schemas/Scripts

    • Integrate general knowledge and specific events.

  • Separate Semantic & Episodic Systems?
