The Cognitive Neuroscience of Mind: A Tribute to Michael S. Gazzaniga

Those essays on more than a few subject matters within the cognitive neurosciences document at the growth within the box over the two decades of its lifestyles and mirror the numerous groundbreaking clinical contributions and enduring effect of Michael Gazzaniga, "the godfather of cognitive neuroscience"—founder of the Cognitive Neuroscience Society, founding editor of the magazine of Cognitive Neuroscience , and editor of the main reference paintings, The Cognitive Neurosciences , now in its fourth variation (MIT Press, 2009).

4, in the section devoted to Experiment 1 data. Not surprisingly, performance was better on easy than difficult items and declined with the number of alternatives. 4 Proportion correct on a multiple-choice test as a function of question difficulty and number of alternatives (including correct) for each question in Experiments 1 and 2 of Roediger and Marsh (reported in this chapter). Performance was better on easy than difficult items and declined with the number of alternatives. Similarly, performance on unread passages was lower than for read passages, and performance generally declined with the number of distractors (albeit more for unread than read passages).

The 7% advantage of expanding interval retrieval to equally spaced retrieval on the final test was small but statistically significant, and this is the comparison that the authors emphasized in the paper. They replicated the effect in a separate experiment with face–name pairs. 40). This pattern suggests that on a more delayed final test, the curves might cross over and equal interval retrieval might prove superior to expanding retrieval. Strangely, for some years researchers did not investigate Landauer and Bjork’s (1978) intriguing findings, perhaps because they made such good sense.

Finally, in a fourth condition denoted SNTN, after the first study–test trial, items that were recalled were dropped both from the study and test phase of the experiment for the additional trials. In this case, then, the study list and the test sequence became shorter over trials. This last condition is most like standard advice for using flashcards – students studied and were tested on the pairs until they were recalled, and then they were dropped so that attention could be devoted to unlearned pairs.
