Learning and Memory are synonymous.
Memories are related to the electrical activity of the brain.
Learning involves modification of the nervous system by experiences.
Experiences are stored in the brain, in seperate folders, like that of a file cabinet.
Learning is possible in the absence of memory.
Is able to recognize objects by the sounds they make.
Identifies and categorizes objects.
Shows a species-typical behavior in response to a previously unimportant stimulus.
Learns the consequences of a specific behavior.
Forms an association between a response and a stimulus.
Law of effect
Perforant path hypothesis
Law of summation
Connections between different regions of the sensory association cortex.
A motor system.
Connections between a sensory system and a motor system.
A single sensory system.
Contingencies between a response and a subsequent stimulus.
LTP is the cellular basis for episodic memory.
LTP occurs independently of synaptic activity.
LTP reflects a persistent temporal summation of postsynaptic potentials.
LTP can be produced in isolated hippocampal slices.
LTP typically lasts up to one hour.
More postsynaptic NMDA receptors
More postsynaptic AMPA receptors
Fewer synaptic connections
More postsynaptic GABA contacts
Fewer presynaptic GABA contacts
