According to the journal article, what was one of the results of n-back task training? A) Increased fluid and crystallized intelligence. B) Increased working memory capacity. C) Increased response times. D) Increased brain area activation. Incorrect. Working memory training did not increase working memory capacity but rather, according to experimenters, increased working memory efficiency.
[Quiz 7]: Categories and Concepts: Which of the following is evidence in favour of the prototype theory? Correct! With prototype theory, category representations are based on an average of experiences of experiences with similar things or phenomena, and therefore items that more closely resemble a category representation are likely to be categorized at a faster rate. Which of the following would be considered evidence for the level of ability children have in categorizing and applying concepts? Incorrect. This scenario simply indicates that a child is able to tell the difference between two objects but it does not indicate anything about whether they understand they are from two different categories or that they are inanimate (and not animate) objects.
According to our understanding of categories and problem solving, which of the following is most likely? A) A child is better able to solve an insight problem because her prototypes within categories may compete with recent exemplars. B) A child is unable to solve an insight problem because she lacks enough exemplars in categories to correctly find a solution. C) A child is unable to solve an insight problem because she has not yet acquired the ability to categorize them. D) A child is better able to solve an insight problem because she has not yet developed fixed categories like adults. Incorrect. Children are better able to solve insight problems because they are less prone to functional fixedness.
