Reconsolidation and Retrieval Induced Forgetting

1. What is associative blocking?

  • The non-studied but related item is inhibited so that responding is reduced
  • The non-practiced category items are recalled worse than those that received no practice
  • Cue word becomes more strongly associated with the competitor word
  • The association between the cue and the target is weakened every time it is incorrectly recalled

2. Which is not experimental criteria for reconsolidation?

  • Treatment to alter reconsolidation administered
  • Test for retention after window for reconsolidation has closed
  • The reactivated memory is in a labile state capable of being changed
  • Reactivation of a consolidated memory

3. What is the self-perpetuating effect?

  • Actively recalling the cued item rather than passively viewing that pairing
  • The cue word repeatedly cues the competitor word because the association is strong
  • Retrieval induced forgetting occurs for high category examples but less for low frequency examples
  • The association between the cue and competitor being stronger than the association between the cue and the target

4. What area of inhibition might fMRI evidence be consistent with?

  • Initial inhibition of the highly accessible but incorrect items
  • Later inhibition of the less accessible but correct items
  • Initial inhibition of the less accessible but correct items
  • Later inhibition of the highly accessible but incorrect items

5. Inhibition of memory leading to RIF appears to be _________ __________

  • Interference dependent
