Fall 2021, Midterm 1 Study Guide Sections 3&4 with Danielle For classroom use only, do not distribute or post online 1. Types of behaviorist views and the associated experiments 2. The difference between what Pavlov did with dogs and what Skinner did with Rats 3. Tolman ' s rat experiments: Conclusion of the experiment How each group of rats supports/challenges the conclusion Cognitive Maps / Latent Learning / Place-Learning 4. What Lashley was doing: The difference between Serial vs. Hierarchical processing Examples of each kind of information processing 5. Whether an FSA/FSM would accept or reject a strand ( practice sheet in the files) 6. How to change in input to an output with a Turing Machine Table ( practice sheet in the files) 7. Chomsky: surface structure and deep structure 8. Features that make early models of information-processing (Broadbent / Miller) functionalist explanations of behavior. 9. Millers 7 +/- 2 rule 10. Marr ' s 3 levels: what are they and what kind of explanation is given at each level? Using his levels, what order should the explanation be given in according to Marr? 11. Top Down vs. Bottom-Up explanation 12. Be able to explain each step in Marr ' s theory of early vision 13. Know the different parts of the brain 14. Where/how visual/light information is processed in the brain (understand how to read the graphic with the red and green visual field information) 15. The parts of the neuron and axon 16. Dorsal / ventral stream as they pertain to the what/where pathway 17. Ungerleider and Mishkin ' s cross-lesion experiment 18. The parts of a connectionist model 19. Be able to say whether noted in a connectionist network will be activated or not ( practice sheet in the files) 20. Features of neural networks vs. features of classic computer systems: how are they different? This study guide is a broad overview of topics covered on Midterm 1. When studying, it will be important to think about the connections between the different topic, how they build on each other, how they support each other, etc. An example of thinking about the connections between the topics: How does Marr ' s tri-level approach create a framework for functionalism? In what way does a computer take in/process information that is similar to how humans seem to take in/ process information?
