Phases of information processing in the acquisition of a memory

Part 1 (400 words minimum): Lea is distressed to find that over the course of her first semester in college, she has gained 15 pounds. She knows that she likes to hang out at the dining hall with friends and is not used to having so many food options (particularly unhealthy ones!) around all the time.

Lea also keeps snacks in her room to eat so that she will not fall asleep when she is up late studying or to make her feel better when she is stressed out over her workload.

Define in your own words, and give a description of how, two types of associative learning and learning by watching others explain Lea’s behavior during her semester at college.

Be sure to use NS, UCS, UCR, CS, and CR terms explaining the effect of classical conditioning, and different types of reinforcement (+ & - ) and punishment (+ & -) explaining the effect of operant conditioning.


NOTE: If you covered the prompt in its entirety and still under 400 words in length, choose 1-3 concepts from Ch. 6 (e.g., observational learning), define/explain each of those concepts in your own words, and give a concrete example (real world from your life, i.e. school, relationships) of how you would use/plan to use each of them (e.g., “Now that I know about …, I understand why …).


Part 2 (400 words minimum): Name the three stages of information processing in the acquisition of memory (e.g., encoding, storage, and retrieval). Imagine you are reading a story in a magazine.

Describe how that information would go through these three phases of information processing in the acquisition of a memory.


NOTE: If you covered the prompt in its entirety and still under 400 words in length, choose 1-3 concepts from Ch. 7 (e.g., short vs long-term memory, different types of long-term memory, amnesia), define/explain each of those concepts in your own words, and give a concrete example (real world from your life, i.e. school, relationships) of how you would use/plan to use each of them (e.g., “Now that I know about …, I see why …).
