1 Lecture 10: Memory Structures Fall 2009 Prof. Lombrozo Overview of today’s class: 1. Schemas & Scripts 2. Reconstructive memory 3. Memory “illusions” 4. (Advertisement for next lecture) Reminder: Assignment 3 due by Wed @ 10pm 10.2 Remember the following: • Anne arrived at the lecture hall at 11:10am, just as the class started. She turned off her music, took out her binder, and listened intently for 50 minutes. At 12pm, she got up and left.
