Thank you for this summary!! Could you write in grammatically correct words next time, some content was hard to understand :(
Pause follows the fast responding instead of responding following the pause :)
Dat is niet wat de zin zegt
Thank you so much! Did you also include the lectures?
I tried my best to do so, but I might have missed something here or there. It would be smart to check other summaries as well
Can someone explain the ribot gradient as it relates to retrograde and anterograde amnesia (is this important for the exam)?
Ribot Gradient refers to retrograde amnesia. It means, that memories, which are formed directly before an accident (damaging hippocampus) are forgotten, as they are not properly consolidated by the hippocampus, BUT memories from a long time ago had enough time to get consolidated, therefore these are not gone. Multiple trace theory predicts FLAT retrograde amnesia (therefore NOT following the Ribot Gradient) for episodic memories since it states that hippocampus is ALWAYS involved in retrieving episodic memories (due to place cells in the hippocampus). Standard consolidation theory predicts a graded (following the Ribot gradient) retrograde amnesia for episodic memories, since it states, that after a while, the hippocampus is not necessary anymore to retrieve memories, as they are all stored independently in the cortex.
Thank you!
does anyone have practice exams for learning and memory?

is that a mobile app?
Is declarative and non- declarative the same as implicit and explicit memory?
Yes, declarative = explicit, non-declarative = implicit

If I am not mistaking the latent inhibition experiment shows a paradigm that can NOT be explained with the Rescorla-Wagner model, that is not 100% clear in the table I guess. Just a little side note. thanks a lot :)
Thanks for the correction, then i got this part wrong :)

Can you maybe upload this as a word doc as well? - thanks!!
Does anyone know if it's allowed to miss the practical tomorrow (measuring cognitive functions 1) and do a catch-up assignment?

do you also have a summary for task 1 of memory and learning?
Is there a practice exam somewhere?
I don't think so, But the last lecture (see lecture slides) he gave a few example questions per task

i love you
i love YOU
Do you think that only studying summaries of studydrive is enough for the exam?
So how can you study more efficiently ?
No area was marked for this question
Not a question, but THANK YOU so much, you're doing a great job on all your summaries!
aww thank you!!! good luck on exams and stuff!! ??
Could anyone put up there lecture notes please ? It would be really helpful !! THANKS
When will the answer key be up on eleum?
They are posted :D
Does anyone have an overview/summary of the brain areas and functions involved for each task?
Does anyone have an overview of brain areas we need to know for 'learning and memory' and their function?
Yes pleeeease can someone upload this ?
Hey guys, does anybody of you have a summary of the article of task 7? Our tutor said it is pretty important. Thanks!!!

Which one ? There are two: Characteristics and correlates of motor skill learning and fMRI evidence for adult motor cortex plasticity during motor skill learning
The part of within session and cross session is important, but I don't know which article it was.
How many mistakes are we allowed to make tomorrow? Same as always? There was no information in the course manual regarding the amount of mistakes. Cheerioo
We have t be perfect, no mistakes allowed :D
12 as always I guess
Can someone explain the Premack principle and the response deprivation hypothesis to me? i did not get the difference between them :)

Task 6
I will try, please correct me if I'm wrong haha -The Premack principle is what he observed in the experiment with the rats. Initially, they didn't like to drink water so they didn't do this that much. However, they did like to run in their wheel (or something like that). When they got restricted to running in the wheel only after they had drank water, they drank much more water even if they didn't like this. So, because they wanted to run in their wheel (a highly-frequent behavior), they had to drink more water (initially a less-frequent behavior) to get access to the running wheel. -The response deprivation hypothesis is something that Premack hypothesized (surprise surprise) after watching this happen. He thought that it doesn't matter which behavior is initially performed more frequently, what does matter is that it simply got restricted. This would mean for example that if he had turned the experiment around (run in the wheel first before they could drink the water), the same thing would happen: the rats would run more often to get access to the water.
Could someone please explain the difference between shaping and chaining (instrumental conditioning task 6)?
Shaping is used for more simple insturmental conditioning tasks, where successive approximations are rewarded. Chaning, which you can do backwards and forwards is used for more complex tasks, which are broken apart in order to condtition the subject. If you want a rat to pull a lever, you will reward it once it gets closer to the lever, and then again if it's real close etc.. (Shaping) If you want a rat to pull a lever and then move a marble to a bowl. You will start with condtioning the rat to the lever and then to the marble (, or the other way around). (This is chainging)
Thanks :)
Could someone pls explain the relation of systems and cellular consolidation to early/late LTP and the 2 theories of memory consolidation? :)

retroactive interference is new info disrupting old learning no?
Hi Dominika! I love this summary! A quick question: Does this say that if you induce stress hormones, you will not get improved memory?

We can skip the last two pages right?
Does anyone have any past/sample exam papers or just practice questions?

I guess I'll have to check the black market for some illegal past papers then.. living on the edge
Past exam are like drugs.. this is illegal but you need this to be happy.
Can someone explan the process of reconsolidation? I can´t find my notes regarding this topic. Thank you.
It's a term from multiple trace theory. It means that every time you try to recall a memory, that memory is temporarily vulnerable. This can lead to changes in the memory, and explains why 2 people remember the same event from a long time ago a bit differently
anyone lecture notes?:)
I take notes by hand but I posted the first lecture (with Word) 6 days ago :) if I'm motivated tomorrow, I'll re-write the others :)
Does anyone have a good summary of the article about purkinje cells? I find the article very confusing..

I post it, I hope that will be clearer :)
Thanks :D
Heeee.! Does anyone have some oefentoetsen? Would be really great x

practice tests! :)
Literally exercice tests :D (Dutch course :D)
Multiple trace theory says that all memories initially are episodic. Some of them then lose their context and become semantic memories (like studying L&M in the library and at home, in the exam you don't remember where you studied but only what). What does the standard theory of consolidation say about episodic and semantic memories? Didn't manage to find that out...
The standard theory of consolidation does not discriminate between episodic and semantic memories
Ah ok, thx.
Does anyone have a full summary of all the tasks?
I have only summaries for each task but didn't do all the lectures yet. Also they are not as concise as I wished them to be.
Does anyone have the complete booklet that Lunatik sold for 5 euros and can upload a photocopy? I ordered mine last week but it still hasn't arrived and I'm starting to stress!
do we have a practice exam?
Nope, only the questions asked during the lecture :/
Does someone has the lecture notes? the first two lectures aren't fully recoreded..

Thank you so much, angel!
Lecture 1 is online :D (others are coming)
could someone please explain the difference between short-term and working memory to me? :) i thought working memory is every type of memory that is available for maintenance and manipulation, so that short-term would be part of it, but also memories retrieved from long-term memory... is that true?
for me, short-term Memory Comes into Play when there is sensory Input and you Keep that Information through rehearsal without really working with it, and working-memory is when you retrieve Information from Long-term Memory and manipulate them. It is also depended on which model you're looking, some are referring to short-term and some to working-memory
in lecture one of L and M he describes it a bit from minute 34 onwards :)
Can someone post the course manual
sure! i'm not sure how to tag you in a post, so i'm telling you here that i've posted it =D
Could anyone summarize the central message of this graph?

-> patients with frontal lobe damage have more difficulty refraining themselves from copying behaviour =)
THANK YOU! Great!!! :D
Would someone like to work on summaries together ?
Do you mean comparing the summaries and going through all tasks?
That seems like the best option. I don't like letting different people write different parts, because not everybody can consistently ensure to deliver sth of high quality.
What is this Opiodide System about? I don't get it...
Opioid? It's about drugs (I can give you more information about it later, to avoid confusions :D)
Hello does anyone know where I can find the literature after it was deleted from Eleum?? Thank you!
You need to find a mate who saved everything on his/her laptop (and I deduce that you didn't attend the intro lecture :D)

Thanks for your summary! Which book(s) is it based on?
It is all from Gluck I think
