2. What is the main concept of Squire's view of consolidation?

  • Slow learning in the hippocampus and interleaved learning
  • Hippocampus has a time sensitive role in consoldation to the neocortex
  • Hippocampus strongly encodes multimodal experiences and episodes
  • Extraction of similarities between multimodal experiences to create concepts (semantic memory)

3. In McClellands theory of complementary learning systems, what is a feature of hippocampal learning?

  • Quickly binding together elements of an episode to prevent interference when new material is learned. Similar features shared by multiple experiences are strongly encoded
  • Slowly binding together elements of an episode using few neurons to allow for seperability of memories
  • Quickly binding together elements of an episode using few neurons to allow for seperability of memories
  • Slowly binding together elements of an episode to prevent interference when new material is learned. Similar features shared by multiple experiences are strongly encoded

4. Is time/place coded in semantic memory?

  • No
  • Yes

5. Which memory type is affected in classical amnesia?

  • Episodic
  • Semantic
