  1. Sensory store
    new information that contains faithful representation of sensory input obtained from each sense.. that enters through our senses Only lasts for 500ms new information is either passed to our STM or lost
  2. Iconnic memeory
    Visual repesentation in sensory store
  3. echoic memory
    auditory representation
  4. Sperling partial report technique
    discovered the storage capacity and duration of sensory store
  5. Short term memory
    • locous control with in the system attends to information and governs retrival from LTM ..It is a consious mental activity Information can be stored ther indefnitly long as reharsal occurs
    • in STS info is either forgoten or transferred to LTM
  6. Long Term memory (storage)
    large storage capacity and contains long term neural changes that endure maibtance info Memory trace= Engram
  7. Memory trace
  8. Consolidation
    the process of information moving from STS to LTS underlies formation of memeory trace
  9. Labile LTM
    MEmory traces that are under going consolidation and can be disturbed
  10. Consolidation LTM
    Memeory traces have already undergon consolidation and can not be disturbed
  11. Retreval
    Bring LTM back to conciousnous and awareness by transferring it to STS
  12. Declarotive memory
    Directly accessibl to consious recollection
  13. Episodic memory
    Atobiography memeory of past events represents information temporally dated and can later be recollected
  14. semantic memory
    knowlege of the orld , organized information such as facts , vocab, concepts. Not temporally dated but can be recollected at any time
  15. procedual memeory
    memory contained within learened skills or cognitive operations
  16. Anterograded Amnisia
    Inablity to form new memories and learn the STS is in tact but information is not consolidated to the LTS
  17. Retrograde amnesia
    In formation prior to event that caused amnesia is lost but can be reteived with time
  18. Medial temporal lobe and cause of damage
    The amygdala and hippocampus area

    damage to the area causes antrograded amnesia of semantic and episodal memeories and slight retrograde amnesia with evens closley related to trama that caused amnesia
  19. Alzheimers
    Inital dmage to the MTL followed by additional dmage to sensory association cortex intially anerograded amnesia followed by progressive rerograde amnsia
  20. glutmate
    nutotranssmiter released in the induction of LTP binds to AMPA a excitory receptor responsible for brains rapid movement

    • Also binds to NMDA receptors in post synaptic membrane
    • Ca++ chanels do not open until series of ESPS remove Mg++ then Ca++ enters postsynaptic memc membran
  21. James Lange theory
    • experience of emotion is related to physiological functions
    • emotions occur as a result of physiological reaction event
  22. cannon bard theory (thalmic therory)
    emotion and physiologically occur simuntalysly
  23. le doux dual model
    low road amygdal

    high road cerebal cortec then amygdala
  24. kuver bucy
    • removal of amygdual cuses drmatic affects
    • decrease in emtional reaction hypersexuality hypermetamorphism visual afnosua oral tendency
  25. vmpfc
    • ventromedial prfrontal cortec inhibits amygdala
    • ohnias gage
  26. dmVhm
    sends excitory projection to Dipag and sites defensive aggression
  27. dipag
    excutes behavior during threat and autonomic responsed
  28. BLa and MEa
    generate rage dipag mus be activated
  29. Cea
    inhibits defensive responding
