verbal -L nonverbal -R For episodic retrieval of words AND nonverbal stimuli Shared & specific processes/brain regions (left PFC) Semantic retrieval leads to episodic encoding - think about meaning and it will encode better, you'll relate it to similar things, so it will ultimately be easier to remember. Communication research is evolving and changing in a world of online journals, open-access, and new ways of obtaining data and conducting experiments via the.

Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) [5], as one of the most successful tools for learning the concepts or latent topics from text, has widely been used for the dimension reduc-tion purpose in information retrieval. More precisely, given a document-term matrix X ∈ RN×M, where N . According to Thurstone using factor analysis, intelligence consists of several specific factors including visual-spatial abilities, perceptual speed, numerical ability, ability to learn the meanings of words, ability to bring to mind the right word rapidly, and ability to reason.

Intelligence refers to general cognitive ability and is assessed by a number of different kinds of tests. Intelligence research and testing remains controversial because of disagreements about the meaning of intelligence. Semantic memory: Explicit memory of facts. Episodic memory: Explicit memory of experiences. Factor analysis: A.   Semantic memory is the memory necessary for the use of language. It is a mental thesaurus, organized knowledge a person possesses about words and other verbal symbols (Episodic and semantic memory, Tulving E & Donaldson W, Organization of Memory.

Book Description. The results of more than seventy years of investigation, by factor analysis, of the varieties of cognitive abilities, are described with particular attention to abilities in language, thinking, memory, visual and auditory perception, creativity, etc.

Read by: Semantic memory refers to general knowledge about the world, including concepts, facts, and beliefs (e.g., that a lemon is normally yellow and sour or that Paris is in France).

How is this kind of knowledge acquired or lost. How is it stored and retrieved. This chapter reviews evidence that conceptual knowledge about concrete objects is acquired through experience with them, thereby grounding.

This work surveys and summarizes the results of more than seventy years of investigation, by factor analysis, of a variety of cognitive abilities, with particular attention to language, thinking, memory, visual and auditory perception, creativity and the production of ideas, and the speed and accuracy of mental : John B.

A multiple-factor analysis was made of a battery of 42 tests of verbal abilities administered to college adults. Where necessary, the distributions of Thurstone'sM (Memory or Rote Learning) factor has been confirmed, but hisV (Verbal Relations) factor seems to have been split into two or possibly three factors,C,J, andG; and hisW (Word Fluency) factor has been split into two factors,A by: This article reviews factor-analytic research on individually administered intelligence tests from a Cattell–Horn–Carroll (CHC) perspective.

The first analysis tested a model based on the outcomes of the exploratory factor analysis.

Model 1 consisted of two factors. The first factor was associated with all three phonological short-term memory measures, the two sentence repetition tasks, the two phonological awareness Cited by: In a subsequent higher-order factor analysis, the six first-order factors loaded substantially (range –) on a single second-order factor (SRMR=).

THE ROLE OF NORMAL AGING IN SEMANTIC MEMORY LOSS. Abel Smith. Most experts agree that semantics is the first area of language to deteriorate. The question asked in this paper is: does the normal aging process affect our ability to recall words from memory. This may seem that it is obviously yes, but there is still much debate concerning the answer to this question amongst researchers.

Strategies are a useful subject of study in cognitive aging research for two reasons. First, some forms of memory such as semantic memory do not decline with age (Zacks & Hasher, ), so certain strategies like semantic organization may be easier for older adults to use than other, more difficult ones like the method of loci (Brooks, Friedman, & Yesavage, Cited by: But, he has gone beyond the re-analysis level and has made up a new model of intelligence: "The three strata model" which will help us to avoid hopeless discussions about the nature of the most important cognitive abilities and to advance in the actually interested topics about such abilities/5.

Semantic memory, on the other hand, is a more structured record of facts, meanings, concepts and knowledge about the external world that we have acquired. It refers to general factual knowledge, shared with others and independent of personal experience and of the spatial/temporal context in which it was ic memories may once have had a personal context, but now .Dimensional structures underlying the Wechsler Memory Scale-Fourth Edition (WMS-IV) and Wechsler Memory Scale-Third Edition (WMS-III) were compared to determine whether the revised measure has a more coherent and clinically relevant factor structure.

Principal component analyses were conducted in normative samples reported in the respective technical manuals. A neuropsychological battery was given to normal children ages 5 to 12 years.

Participants were balanced according to (a) age (5 to 6, 7 to 8, 9 to 10, or 11 to 12 years old), (b) socioeconomic level (high or low), and (c) sex.

A 4 × 2 × 2 design was thus obtained with an average of 15 subjects in each cell. For the neuropsychological battery, language was assessed via the Boston Cited by:
