Skim: Ch. 1.1, Ch. 49.4 (PG 1093-1095)
recognize and recreate the process of learning
compare and contrast the types of memory
Outcomes:
*Read sections you have questions about
Memory & Learning:
Nervous system is established during development
Gene expression/Signal Transduction
Neural Development (Basic network of cells set)
Remodeling occurs at synapses (junction between neurons) & is activity dependent (i.e muscle memory)
Neuronal Plasticity - ability of nervous cells to be modified after birth

Memory: Use it or Lose It
Memory - depends on neuronal plasticity & activity
Analogy: Like short term guys/flings (you can clear your RAM)
Short Term Memory (RAM) - info stored for short term, released if not used
Analogy: More like committed relationships or Backing Up Hard Drive
Need to retrieve fro the STM B/C ou ca’t get thigs directlfro LTM (i.e like trig to retrieve files fro eteral
hard drive, you can (need to download them first))
When needed, retrieved into STM
Long Term Memory (Hard Drive) - activated when needed (need for retention)
Learning: Use of knowledge/experiences (memory) to decrease the likelihood of negative outcome (think Jurassic Park)
Activity dependent
Facilitates memory & retrieval
Long-Term Potentiation:lasting increase in the strength of synaptic transmission - physiological changes
Forming memories/Using Info = Sorting process
("like post office" - contact between mail & person)
Use > important > retained
Not used > unimportant > discarded
Discarded = no new synapses formed
Stimulus > Sensory Memory Storage ("milisec) > Encoded > STM > Encoded >LTM
Between LTM & STM, LTP (retrieval) is going through
