2. Which was patient KC most impaired in?

  • Severe episodic deficits (retrograde amnesia), intact semantic memory
  • Severe semantic deficits (anterograde amnesia), intact episodic memory
  • Severe semantic deficits (retrograde amnesia), intact episodic memory
  • Severe episodic deficits (anterograde amnesia), intact semantic memory

3. In McClellands theory of complementary learning systems, which is faster at learning?

  • Hippocampus
  • Neocortex

4. Which of these characterises an hippocampal memory system?

  • Extraction of similarities between multimodal experiences to retrieve concepts (ie episodic memory)
  • Encoding and recreating unique multimodal experiences of people/places/objects/events (semantic memory)
  • Encoding and recreating unique multimodal experiences of people/places/objects/events (episodic memory)
  • Extraction of similarities between multimodal experiences to create concepts (ie semantic memory)

5. Why does the temporal gradient in amnesia occur for older memories?

  • Because they have been retrieved more, their quality and neural basis changes into more semantic memory
  • Because they havent been retrieved as much, their quality and neural basis changes into more episodic memory
  • Because they have been retrieved more, their quality and neural basis changes into more episodic memory
  • Because they havent been retrieved as much, their quality and neural basis changes into more semantic memory
