Test 16 Page 1 of 6 Test 16 1. Which of the following describes procedural learning? Choose the correct option. A) Easily formed and easily forgotten B) A motor response (procedure) in reaction to a sensory input C) Keeping information in mind while performing as specific task D) Explicit memory 2. Repeated presentation of the same stimulus produces progressively smaller responses. What type of learning does this represent? Choose the correct option. A) Sensitization B) Classical conditioning C) Habituation D) Instrumental conditioning 3. Bilateral temporal lobectomy such as that sustained by H.M. is characterized by which of the following? Choose the correct option. A) Permanent anterograde amnesia but intact procedural memory. B) Permanent retrograde amnesia as well as procedural memory deficits. C) Permanent anterograde amnesia as well as procedural memory deficits. D) Permanent procedural memory deficits and transient anterograde amnesia. 4. Some neurons in the prefrontal cortex fire exclusively during the delay period in the delayed non-match to sample task, implicating these neurons in working memory. A) True B) False Question 5: If you try to recall how many windows there are in your house by mentally walking from room to room, are you using declarative memory, procedural memory, or both? Question 6: What evidence is there that declarative and nondeclarative memory use distinct circuits? Question 7: What abilities and disabilities do you think a person completely lacking working memory would have? Question 8: Why did Lashley conclude that all cortical areas contribute equally to learning and memory? Why was this conclusion later called into question? Question 9: What evidence indicates that long-term memories are stored in neocortex? Question 10: If you were using a microelectrode to record from the brain and you suspected that a neuron you encountered was involved in storing long-term memories, how would you test that hypothesis?

Test 16 Page 2 of 6 Question 11: If a neuron in visual cortex responds to faces, how could you determine whether it is involved in perception or storing memories for faces? Question 12: What are place cells, and where are they found? In what ways are the response characteristics of place cells different from the receptive fields of sensory neurons? Question 13: What role does the hippocampus play in spatial memory, working memory, and relational memory? Question 14: What is working memory, and in what brain areas have neural correlates of working memory been observed?
