Reconsolidation and Retrieval Induced Forgetting

1. What is associative unlearning?

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

2. What is the self-perpetuating effect?

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

3. What is associative blocking?

  • The non-studied but related item is inhibited so that responding is reduced
  • 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
  • The non-practiced category items are recalled worse than those that received no practice

5. Which is not experimental criteria for reconsolidation?

  • Test for retention after window for reconsolidation has closed
