Chapter 6: Interconnections Between Acquisition and Retrieval I. Retrieval Hints and Cues A. There is a relationship between the particular way you learn and the particular form of memory retrieval Any bit of learning might prepare you for some forms of memory retrieval but not others If learning produces connection between memory X and memory Y, your thoughts will be guided toward Y whenever you're thinking about X but connection will have no impact if you're not thinking about X Learning prepares you to access/retrieve a memory from a specific starting point and learning will help you if you're currently at that starting point B. State-Dependent Learning Memory depends on connections either w/in the material to be remembered or between this material and other things already know Connections function by making memories findable = serve as retrieval paths Instead of speaking as learning as "good" or "bad", learning involves formation of connections that will be effective for some purposes (e.g. retrieving info from certain set of starting points) but less effective for others
