Psychology 4033
Course Overview Slides (1/17)
1. Measuring memory content: Recall Methods
a. Free recall: people report as much information as they can
i. What we measure:
1. # recalled: how many items were remembered
2. omissions: what was not remembered
3. intrusions: hat as eeeed ut as ot studied
a. false memories
ii. order can be important
1. recall order: can give insight into how memories are structured
2. forced recall: people are forced to report a certain amount of
information
3. we still measure:
a. #recalled: usually forced> free recall
b. omissions: usually forced< free recall
c. intrusions: easier to elicit in forced recall
4. order is still important:
5. weaker memories tend to be reported last
iii. cued recall: recalled is prompted with a contextual cue from encoding
(E.g., paired-associates, A-B, learning)
1. again, we can measure: # recalled, omissions, and intrusions
2. but now we have potential for more IVs/DVs:
a. type of contextual cue
i. not all cues are verbal (state-dependent memory)
b. interference from multiples lists
i. list 1 (waffle-stain), List 2 (waffle-pocket)
iv. Old-New Recognition: people judge studied and non-studied items as
either old or new
1. What e a easue: iage oss ite’s status ad
Patiipat’s espose
a. Hit/Hit-rate: correctly recognized
b. Correct rejection: reogized ou did’t ko it
c. False alarm: false memory
d. Miss: all soethig e ut it’s atuall old
2. But what about guessing?
a. Bias (C, beta symbol): degree to which someone is willing
to sa Old; lo ias, uh oe illig to sa old
b. Discrimination (sensitiit, d’: Ho ell old ites a e
distinguished from new items. Higher= better performance
v. Forced-Choice Recognition: people choose which of several alternatives
was studied
1. We can measure accuracy and decision time

a. Further, we can now manipulate the similarity of the
targets and foils
vi. Response Times (RTs): Speed of responding, typically measured in
milliseconds (1000ms= 1s)
1. Presumably, the shorter the RT, the easier the process
a. But ho do e ko hat is “lo s fast?
i. Relative comparisons
ii. Encoding-> retention-> retrieval
iii. Can manipulate the retention span: 10 minutes or
2 days
iv. Encoding can be common (HF) or Rare (LF)
1. Rare is more weird and easier to remember
vii. Neuroimaging: Although many types exist, most articles we will
read/discuss use fMRI (functional)
1. Blood-oxygen-level dependent contrast (BOLD): relative chance in
blood flow used to reveal active brain regions
a. Pacemaker firing mode (brain just sitting, no cognitive
processing)
b. Bursty firing mode (functioning brain, more oxygen
needed)
2. Will usually talk about temporal lobe and hippocampus and
frontal lobe
