Starter: Episodic or semantic memory?

Learning Objectives To be able to describe Steyver & Hemmers (2012) contemporary key study. To be able to evaluate Steyver & Hemmers (2012) contemporary key study. To be able to answer exam questions about Steyver and Hemmers (2012) key study.

Starter: Episodic or semantic memory? Your first day of school. Putting your tooth under a pillow. Washington DC is the capital of the USA. Blue and yellow paint mixed together makes

green paint. Getting your GCSE results. Your last family holiday. Photosynthesis leads to the production of glucose & O2. The first time you went into

town on your own. A flock of crows is known as a murder. Can you think of episodic and semantic memories from your psychology lessons?! Starter (Cont):

What is a schema? Think of a possible schema for an office (including fixed & variable items). Office So... You think you have a good memory?! Lets find out!!!

Background for the key study Look, listen & remember these words...

Sour Candy Sugar Bitter Good

Taste Tooth

Nice Honey Soda Chocolate

Heart Cake Tart Pie Now... On your scrap paper, write as many of those words as you can.

Answers

Sour Candy Sugar Bitter Good Taste

Tooth

Nice Honey Soda Chocolate Heart

Cake Tart Pie How many of you remembered the word sweet???? Who might be interested in knowing whether people have an accurate or inaccurate memory?

But Why might our little (sweet) experiment been unrepresentative of what real eyewitnesses have to do? So Im going to show you a picture of a scene on

the next slide for 35 seconds; you need to remember this scene. Pay attention! Now... On your scrap piece of paper, write down as many items from the room as you can.

Answers A total list of the objects in the room can be found on Moodle, in the Brewer & Treyens (1981) article. Did you see the skull? There was one! Did you recall having seen books? Filing cabinets? Coffee cup? Pens? Window? Curtains? Ball? Lamp? Pencils? Telephone? There werent any!

But Why might Brewer & Treyens (1981) experiment not be representative of how our memory really works in everyday life? So Steyvens & Hemmer (2012) decided to do a study with higher ecological validity (higher

mundane realism) so see whether our memory for real scenes is any good (or not!). Key Contemporary Study: Steyvers & Hemmer (2012) Instructions I am going to show you a series of images.

After I have shown each image you will have time to write down the items you saw in each image. Please put your pen down when you have finished writing. I will move on once the last person has put their pen down. Ready?!

1. 1. Now... Write down every item that you remember from that scene. Put your pen down when you have finished, so that I know I can move on.

2. 2. Now... Write down every item that you remember from that scene. Put your pen down when you have finished, so that I know I can move on.

3. 3. Now... Write down every item that you remember from that scene. Put your pen down when you have finished, so that I know I can move on.

4. 4. Now... Write down every item that you remember from that scene. Put your pen down when you have finished, so that I know I can move on.

5. 5. Now... Write down every item that you remember from that scene. Put your pen down when you have finished, so that I know I can move on.

Lets Mark! Switch answers with somebody else. You will be shown each of the scenes again. Give a tick for each correct response. Put a cross next to each incorrect response (i.e. Error). Count up the total number of ticks per scene. Count up the total number of errors per scene.

Ask if you have any questions. 1. Dining Room Scene 2. Office Scene 3. Kitchen Scene

4. Urban Scene 5. Hotel Scene Questions to Consider 1. What was the DV in this study? 2. What do you think the IV was in this study?

3. What type of experimental design was used in this study? 4. What do you think the aim of the experiment was? Check against the notes (page 30). How did your results compare with those obtained by Steyvens & Hemmer (2012)?
