connections in our bruins Translate info we acquire through our senses into neural signals which are coded perceived and stored I Know how memories are stored I They change the way we perceive perform think and plan by physically changing the structure of the nervous system altering neural circuits that participate in perceiving performing thinking planning I Know the different types of memories I Declarative Memory memory that can be verbally expressed such as memory for events in a person s past I Nondeclarative Memory memory whose formation does not depend on the hippocampal formation a collective term for perceptual stimulusresponse and motor memory I shortterm memory memory for a stimulus or event that lasts far a short while I episodic memory ot a collection of perceptions ofevenls organized in time and identified by a particular contem I semantic facts and general inibnnntion I spatial memory learning about relationships among many stimuli Be able to describe the four different types of learning and give examples I perceptual learning lezuning to recognize a particular stimulus I stimulusresponse learning earning to autnniaticalh make 1 particular response in the presence of a particular stimulus includes instrumental and classical conditioning I motor learning aiming to make a new response I relational learning I Episodic Learning remembering sequences of events episodes that we witness I Spatial Learning perception of spatial locations Be able to describe classical vs operant conditioning I Classical Pavlov s dog A learning procedure when a stimulus that initially produces no particular response is followed several times by unconditional stimulus that produces a defensive or appetitive responseUR the first stimulusCS itself evokes the responseCR I Operalitinstrumental I Organisms team to behave in certain ways by noticing the consequencesquot of their behavmrS response becomes more or less liker to occur depending on its consequences Be able to describe reinforcement and punishment I Reiniorcenienlappetitive stiniulus that to an a paniculur behuTtOI39illCl GzLSing the probability of 2t behavior occurring a grain I PDSllth g e receiving a

phone taken away or grounded What is long term potentiationAn increase in the magnitude of excitatoifv postsynaptie potentials in postsynaptie neurons over the long term when u eak and strong synapses lire at the same time to a single down channel neuron the Vieak synapses become stronger A longterm increase in the excitability of a neuron to a particular synaptic input caused by repeated high frequency activity of that input I Be able to describe the process I Termnial button ofstrong synapse becomes active I EPSI propagated along the dendrite and ll i ggers an action potential in the axon I Strong synapse becomes active and triggers an action potential in the axon I Back ash triggers dendritic spike depolarizing the dendiite and all ofthe dendritic spines I Depolarization ejects the magnesium ions from the ion channels ofthe NMDA receptors in the dendritic spines I Tei39muial button of weak synapse becomes active while postsynaptic membrane is still depolarized I No magnesium

time and identi ed by a particular context remembering sequences of events episodes that we witness How does longterm depression affect learning and memoryLTD is caused when low frequencies are repeatedly stimulating the synapses opposite of LTP but seems to have the same effect on memory and learningTbe 39 names are eakened and make the sturoundir synapses seein strongerf7 Inability for neural circuitry to firetWeak synapses do not depolarize a neuron when activeLTD has been linked to issues with amount of calcium at synaptic channels in the hippocampus So people with LTD have been shown to have lower levels of calcium thus less potentiality for building AMPA receptors therefore is harder for them to make NEW long term memories I Know how AMPA receptors are related to LTDLn LTD there is a reduction of AMPA receptors that lasts around an hour or two What is short term memory Long term memorys1101ttenn is a memory for a stimulus or event that lasts for a shon While longterm is

ganglia I evidence suggests that as leamed behaviors become automatic and routine they are transferred to the basal ganglia Also connects the sensory association cortex and the motor association cortex I Basal receive sensory information and info about plans for movement form neocortex I Instrumental conditioning activates the basal ganglia Know the difference between anterograde and retrograde amnesia I A terogmde amnesia for events that occur after some sturbanc gtllCl as head injury or certain degeneratth brain diseases t I Retrograde zunne or events thal preceded some

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."


"Their 'Elite Notetakers' are making over $1,200/month in sales by creating high quality content that helps their classmates in a time of need."
