∙ Describe the process of LTP, what changes occur and why it is considered to be a model for learning and memory
o In addition, know this slide:
∙ Compare and contrast developmental (or organizational) and activational effects of sex hormones
∙ List the sex steroids and one example of each We also discuss several other topics like What is the sample proportion of successes?
∙ Review the following information from the slides:
o Hormones tend to be released in pulses
This often leads to large minutetominute fluctuations in hormone levels
o Female hormones go through a 28day cycle: the menstrual cycle o Male hormone levels are constant
o Anterior pituitary activity is controlled by the hypothalamus
o The hypothalamus determines whether hormone levels cycle
∙ Our current understanding of what makes us sleep, and what happens to our sleep as we age
