Document Summary

Context depending learning: context in the which we learn important for identifying the starting point for retrieval, the more similar learning and retrieval contexts are, the better memory performance will be: Changes in approach to memory materials: overlap between testing context and learning context improves performance because of. Participants given pairs of words and told to use the first word to help them remember the second word. Results: overall advantage for processing meaning, advantage for matched learning and test conditions. General properties of nodes: nodes have response thresholds- nodes have activation levels that vary continuously. Once threshold is met, the node sends activation outward. Very similar to how neurons function: spreading activation: activation spreads passively from node to node along associative links. We have seen this notion of networks and spreading activation earlier in the course in our discussion of feature nets. Recall starts with designation of what you are trying to recall.
