Semantic Relatedness Corrects the Age-Related Binding Deficit in Working Memory and Episodic Memory.

Summary of "Semantic Relatedness Corrects the Age-Related Binding Deficit in Working Memory and Episodic Memory."

It is well-known that age differentially impacts aspects of long-term episodic memory (EM): Whereas a binding deficit indicates that older adults are less capable than younger adults to encode or retrieve associations between information (e.g., the pairing between two memoranda, such as lock - race), item memory is relatively intact (e.g., recognizing lock without its original pairing).

Semantic relatedness and distinctive processing may inflate older adults' positive memory bias.

Emotional stimuli are often more semantically interrelated and relatively distinct than neutral stimuli. These factors can enhance memory for emotional stimuli in young adults, but their effects in ol...

Precision, binding, and the hippocampus: Precisely what are we talking about?

Endel Tulving's proposal that episodic memory is distinct from other memory systems like semantic memory remains an extremely influential idea in cognitive neuroscience research. As originally suggest...

Listening to your intuition in the face of distraction: Effects of taxing working memory on accuracy and bias of intuitive judgments of semantic coherence.

People can intuitively estimate the semantic coherence of word triads, even when they are unable to state the triads' common denominator. The present research examines the role of working memory in su...

Learning from errors is attributable to episodic recollection rather than semantic mediation.

Many recent studies have shown that memory for correct answers is enhanced when an error is committed and then corrected, as compared to when the correct answer is provided without intervening error c...

Reward-related distracters and working memory filtering.

Reward-related stimuli capture attention, even when they are task irrelevant. A consequence of attentional prioritization of reward-related stimuli is that they may also have preferential access to wo...

The Effects of Working Memory Training in Children With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

Previous studies indicated that children with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often suffer from deficits in executive function, such as attentional control, inhibition, and...

Working Memory Training in Young ADHD Children

The purpose of this study is to investigate whether working memory training improves behavioral symptoms, neurocognitive performance, and neural functioning in young children with ADHD.

Protocol Memory Deficit in Patients With Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome

Emotional Working Memory Training for Veterans With PTSD Symptoms

PTSD is characterized by recurrent intrusion of trauma-related memories and images that cause significant distress and impairment to the affected individuals. The current project aims to e...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A neuropsychological test designed to assess different memory functions. It may incorporate an optional cognitive exam (Brief Cognitive Status Exam) that helps to assess memory related cognitive function.

A form of frontotemporal lobar degeneration and a progressive form of dementia characterized by motor speech impairment and AGRAMMATISM, with relative sparing of single word comprehension and semantic memory.

Memory related to spatial information.

A framework for development and promotion of common data formats and exchange protocols linked in a way that can be read directly by computers. Semantic Web is a platform for sharing and reusing data across application, enterprise, and community boundaries, by linking concepts rather than just documents.

Type of declarative memory, consisting of personal memory in contrast to general knowledge.
