    • Introduction
    • Endel Tulving is most famous for introducing two separate types of memory systems: Episodic Memory and Semantic Memory
    • 1953 BA – Psychology from the University of Toronto
    • 1954 MA – Psychology from the University of Toronto
    • 1957 PhD – Experimental Psychology from Harvard University
    • Returned to University of Toronto where he currently teaches

    • Models of Memory
    • Atkinson and Shiffrin ’s information-processing model
      • Information is separated into three main system:
        • Sensory Memory
        • Short-Term Memory (Working Memory)
        • Long-Term Memory
      • One of the first models to separate short-term from long-term

    • Models of Memory –cont-
    • Long-term Memory has been divided into two separate domains:
      • Procedural Memories
      • Propositional Memories
    • Tulving thought it was necessary to differentiate propositional memories into two separate systems:
      • Episodic Memories
      • Semantic Memories

    • Forerunners to Tulving
    • Early Dichotomous Classification of Memory
      • Aristotle
        • Experience / Wisdom
      • Henri Bergson (1911)
        • Habit / True Memory
      • Claparede (around 1911)
        • Those established between connections / those established between connections and the self
      • Furlong (1948)
        • Retrospective Memory / Non-Retrospective Memory
    • Introduction
    • Models of Memory
    • Forerunners to Tulving

    • Critics

    • Recent Studies
    • Conclusion
  • 6.
    • Verbal Learning Experiments
    • Tulving conducted experiments in verbal learning while at Harvard
      • Verbal Learning Experiments
        • Subjects are given words to study, retain, and recall over a number of trials
      • Tulving found that test subjects were remembering the occurrence of the word events rather than learning or recalling them
      • Tulving began studying event-memory tests rather than verbal learning tests
      • These event-memory tests began the preliminary phases of two memory systems, episodic and semantic
    • Introduction
    • Models of Memory
    • Forerunners to Tulving

    • Critics
    • Evidence
    • Recent Studies
    • Conclusion
  • 7.
    • Differences between Episodic and Semantic Memories
      • Retrieval
        • Episodic involves autonoetic awareness (time stamped events) and the mental re-experience of a previous moment in the past
        • Semantic has no autonoesis, no mental time travel
      • Storage
        • Episodic has temporal co-occurrence of two words, A and B
        • Semantic entails a meaningful relation between two words, the A-B association

    • Differences between Episodic and Semantic Memories –cont-
      • Vulnerability to Interference
        • Episodic is more vulnerable to interference
          • Interference Theory
      • Interdependence
        • Episodic and Semantic memory systems often interact closely to one another.
        • However, they still have interdependent functions

    • Critics

    • Recent Studies
    • Conclusion
  • 9.
    • Critics to Episodic / Semantic Differentiation
      • The idea of episodic was vague
      • Tulving ’s episodic theory did not follow established scientific research
      • No reason to distinguish memory into two systems
      • Lack of evidence
      • Unitary memory system

    • Scientific Evidence Differentiating Episodic from Semantic
      • Neurological Patients with Brain Damage
        • Brain Damage (accident or disease)
        • Research has shown that two memory systems, episodic and semantic, are present
      • Functional Neuroimaging Techniques
        • Examine brain activity
        • One empirical regularity:
          • Left prefrontal cortex is differentially more involve than right in encoding information into the episodic memory
          • Right prefrontal cortex is differentially more involved than left in episodic retrieval
          • Semantic retrieval is seldom observed in the right hemisphere

    • Scientific Evidence Differentiating Episodic from Semantic –cont-

    • Recent Studies Involving Episodic and Semantic Memory

      • Early learning – episodic
      • Transformation to semantic
      • Knowledge is schematized
    • Semb & Ellis (1994)
      • Instructional content vs. Qualitative changes in memory structure (schemas)
      • Long-term retention
    • MacKenzie & White (1982)

    • Conclusion
    • Empirical Research has validated claims of two memory systems: episodic and semantic
    • Learning has been shown to increase when knowledge is schematized
    • Instructional material and student ’s (employees) ability matter
    • Match training / job tasks to employees original knowledge and ability
