I have noted below when a question is irrelevant to this years class. This year (winter 2009), the second midterm will have mostly multiple choice, true/false, or short answer question (about 30 of these), and there will be one essay question. I passed out a copy of the possible essay questions in class on Tuesday, and they can also be downloaded from the course website. 1. Suppose you are trying to learn that working memory functions require brain activity in the prefrontal cortex. Which of the following would probably be the least effective way to commit this idea to memory? a) Î Repeating to yourself, "working memory functions require brain activity in the prefrontal cortex," 20 times. b) Learning to form an image of the brain and the areas of the prefrontal cortex that are typically activated during working memory tasks. c) Thinking about studies with monkeys and humans that have supported this idea. Reminding yourself what was found in these studies that show that working memory functions require brain activity in prefrontal cortex. d) Creating a study card that says "working memory functions require brain activity in what part of the brain?" on one side and "prefrontal cortex" on the other side. Mix this card in with many others, study the first side of each card, and then try to recall the answer on the other side of each card. Do this several times. 2. You are having a conversation with a friend while you both watch an exciting sporting event. At the first time out, your friend tells you that he went to see and hear the opera, Tosca . Before you can continue this conversation, the sporting action begins again so your attention is riveted on the field. Five minutes later, there is another break in the action. You remember that your friend mentioned that he had gone to see Tosca , so you start that conversation again. Your recall that your friend had mentioned Tosca involves retrieval from what memory system? a. Short-term memory (STM) b. Spatial working memory (VSP) c. Phonological loop (PL) d. Î Long-term declarative memory (LTM) Each of the following is either a form of long-term declarative memory or a form of long-term non- declarative (implicit) memory. Classify each example as an example of a particular memory system. 3. Suppose that someone teaches you how to dance the rhumba. When you dance the rhumba, your ability to perform this dance is mostly based on retrieval from what memory system? a)
