Document Summary

Given significant hints to help you remember. Asked to choose the correct item from among several items. Asked to regenerate words without necessarily regarding them as memories. Priming: exposing someone to an experience that facilitates the thinking of or recognizing something else. Sensitive to info that is usually but not always correct. Remembering a specific event in your life. Working memory and the role of executive functioning. Recency effect: when people are asked to recall a list of items, they are most likely to recall items at the end than others. Cognitive psychology seeks to understand thought processes. The tendency to respond to and to remember the some stimuli more than others. Not knowing something else is happening, while fixated on something. Deliberately changing your attention from one thing to another. Ex: a cheerio in a fruit loop box. Procedure that requires you searching through the items in a series.
