Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Long term memory require us to store material for a matter of seconds.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Long term memory does not require us to store material for a matter of seconds. In fact, long term memory is the type of memory that allows us to store information and experiences for an extended period of time, ranging from days to years. It is responsible for the storage and retrieval of information that we can recall even after a significant amount of time has passed. Therefore, the statement is false.

    Eidetic imagery is rather common.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Eidetic imagery, also known as photographic memory, is actually quite rare. It is a phenomenon where an individual can vividly recall images, sounds, or objects with great detail and accuracy. Only a small percentage of the population possesses this ability, making it uncommon rather than common. Therefore, the statement that eidetic imagery is rather common is false.

    Given the space available in the short-term memory, new items will displace the older memories.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    In short-term memory, there is a limited capacity to hold information. As new items are added, they displace or push out older memories to make space. This is known as displacement and is a characteristic of short-term memory. Therefore, the statement is true.

    To encode information into the short-term memory, you must ignore it.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    To encode information into short-term memory, you must pay attention to it rather than ignore it. Encoding involves actively processing and storing information in short-term memory, which requires focus and attention. Ignoring information would prevent it from being encoded effectively into short-term memory. Therefore, the statement "To encode information into the short-term memory, you must ignore it" is false.

    Short-term memory corresponds to the active part.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Short-term memory refers to the temporary storage and manipulation of information in the brain. It is the active part of memory where information is held for a short period of time, typically around 15-30 seconds. This information is then either forgotten or transferred to long-term memory through encoding. Therefore, the statement "Short-term memory corresponds to the active part" is true, as short-term memory is indeed the active component of memory processing.

    The most striking fact about short-term memory is that it has a very limited capacity.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Short-term memory is known to have a limited capacity, meaning that it can only hold a small amount of information for a short period of time. This is supported by research and studies that have shown that individuals can typically only hold around seven items in their short-term memory at a time. Therefore, the statement that short-term memory has a very limited capacity is true.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Short-term memory may play an important role in unconscious thought.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Short-term memory is not typically associated with unconscious thought. Unconscious thought refers to cognitive processes that occur without conscious awareness or intention. Short-term memory, on the other hand, involves the temporary storage and manipulation of information that is currently being attended to. While both short-term memory and unconscious thought are important aspects of cognitive functioning, they operate in different ways and serve different purposes. Therefore, the statement that short-term memory may play an important role in unconscious thought is false.
