Recall and recognition Recall: Jeopardy is a good example. Asked to retrieve a memory with very few external clues Sometimes we know the answer but we cannot spit it out Tip of the tongue phenomenon Stop thinking about it. Your brain is still figuring it out Serial position effect Want go first or last never in the middle We remember the first part and the last part Info in the middle is what we have a hard time recalling. Recognition: Who wants to be a millionaire is a good example. Information is shown to you and you just have to recognize it. Pick it out of a list. Sometimes we have false positives. False witnesses cause issues. Reasons for forgetting information: 1. Encoding failure: failing to make sensory information usable. 2. Decay and Disuse: Decay – you don’t use a memory and it leaves your short term memory. Disuse – happens with your long term memory. Locker combo for example. 3. Proactive Interference : Proactive is when you learn subject a and subject b, while trying to learn b you have a hard time because of a 4.Retroactive Interference: Retroactive is when you learn a and then b, and then you have a hard time remembering a because you just learned b Summarize the forms of Amnesia: Retrograde: Past Partial, some weeks, years or days. Full: Loses everything like their names, past etc. Usually can brush teeth, drive, etc. Enterograde Amnesia: New long term memories For your original post, describe something that has been difficult for you to remember using one or more of the reasons for forgetting information. For your response post, use information from your textbook to give a classmate strategies to help them remember the information they have described more easily.
