  1. 1. Brain activity associated with episodic memory similarities and differences between encoding and retrieval

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Jonas Persson; Umeå universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Episodic memory; encoding; retrieval; positron emission tomography PET ; enactment; overlap; retrieval mode; retrieval success; novelty;

    Abstract : Understanding the mnemonic functions of the brain has been extensively facilitated by the development of functional neuroimaging techniques such as positron emission tomography (PET) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). The present thesis aims at investigating the neural mechanisms underlying memory for personally experienced events (episodic memory), using PET. READ MORE

    Abstract : In my thesis I raised two questions: Does autobiographical memory differ i) depending on the sensory retrieval cue (Study I and II)? and ii) depending on gender (Study III)?Concerning retrieval cues, three unimodal cues (i.e., photographs, naturalistic sounds and odors) and one multimodal cue (i.e. READ MORE

  3. 3. Autobiographical odor memory

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Psykologiska institutionen

    Author : Johan Willander; Stockholms universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; Autobiographical odor memory; autobiographical memory; olfaction; olfactory imagery; episodic memory; age distribution; phenomenological experience; emotion; SOCIAL SCIENCES Social sciences Psychology; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP Socialvetenskap Psykologi; psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : In the present thesis, three empirical studies investigate autobiographical odor memory with regard to: (a) whole life-span age distributions, (b) phenomenological experience, (c) semantic processing, and (d) odor imagery. Study I explored potential influences of cue type (words, pictures, odors) on the retrieval of autobiographical memories. READ MORE

  4. 4. Brain-based teaching behavioral and neuro-cognitive evidence for the power of test-enhanced learning

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå Universitet

    Author : Carola Wiklund-Hörnqvist; Umeå universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; learning; memory; memory processes; the testing effect; test-enhanced learning; retrieval practice; evidence-based teaching methods; neuro-cognitive processes; working memory; memory strength; semantic elaboration; Psychology; psykologi;

    Abstract : A primary goal of education is the acquisition of durable knowledge which challenges the use of efficient pedagogical methods of how to best facilitate learning. Research in cognitive psychology has demonstrated that repeated testing during the learning phase improves performance on later retention tests compared to restudy of material. READ MORE

  5. 5. Memory Illusions and Memory Attributions - Behavioural and Electrophysiological Data

    University dissertation from Department of Psychology, Lund University

    Author : Mikael Johansson; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2002]
    Keywords : SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; memory illusion; false memory; misattribution; episodic memory; neurofysiologi; familiarity; recollection; source monitoring; event-related potentials; Neurology; neuropsychology; neurophysiology; neuropsykologi; Neurologi;

    Abstract : Although memory often serves us well, it can also prove highly unreliable. The study of illusions and distortions of memory unveils important information about the nature of human memory functioning and, moreover, factors affecting memory accuracy. READ MORE
