Q2: Who do you think has a most problems retrieving memories from the recent past?
a) a person with a mild anterograde amnesia
b) a person with a complete anterograde amnesia
c) a person with no anterograde amnesia
d) a politician
(Ok, d is a joke), but clearly, if you put it up there as a joke, there is some truth to it XP
Why did Lashley fail to find effects of large lesions on memory in rats, while destruction of just the hippocampus and surrounding cortex suffices in yielding complete anterograde amnesia in primates?
because he searched for the circuits of procedural memory in regions mediating memory for declarative information
- skill learning: knowing how to ride a bicycle
- priming: being more likely to use a word you heard recently
- conditioning: salivating when you see your favorite food
- sensory perception
