What factors influence forgetting?
What factors influence forgetting? Many different factors influence the actual process of forgetting. An example of one of these factors could be the amount of time the new information is stored in the memory. [ Events involved with forgetting can happen either before or after the actual memory process. The amount of time the information is stored in the memory, depending on the minutes
hours or even days, can increase or decrease depending on how well the information is encoded.[2] Studies show that retention improves the increased rehearsal. This improvement occurs because rehearsal helps to transfer information into long term memory. ]

1. Puberty can be a difficult time for adolescents. What are some of the challenges they face?
Weegy: Puberty is the time during which your child moves through a series of significant and natural, healthy changes. These physical, psychological and emotional changes signal your child is moving from childhood to adolescence. [ Puberty starts when changes in your child’s brain cause sex hormones to start being released in the ovaries (girls) and testes (boys). The timing of puberty and its stages is different for every young person, but includes: a period of physical growth and development inside and out – this is different for boys and for girls changes to sexual organs – these changes are different for boys and for girls social and emotional changes. As a guide, puberty usually begins around 10-11 years for girls and around 11-13 years for boys. But it’s normal for the start of puberty to range from 8-13 years in girls and 9-14 years in boys. Every child is different. Genetics, nutrition and social factors all play a role in the onset of puberty. There’s no way of knowing exactly when your child will start puberty. Early changes in your child’s brain and hormone levels can’t be seen from the outside, so it’s easy to think that puberty hasn’t started. ............. ] (More)

What is the difference between classical and operant conditioning? Provide an example of each type of conditioning. (Do not use the same example as the textbook.)
Weegy: Operant conditioning is trial and error. Example: a baby learns that when they cry Mommy comes in and gives comfort so they cry when alone in their crib. [ The skinner box shows that mice can learn to push a lever to get food, but only when the correct light is on, push when the incorrect light is on and the lever push brings the electric zap. Classical conditioning is neutral stimulus equals reward or punishment. Example: before conditioning, a bell means nothing to the dog. Food makes the dog salivate. Conditioning occurs, ring the bell every time you give the dog food. After conditioning, food makes dog salivate still, but when a bell (neutral stimulus) is rung and NO food is shown the dog still salivates. Kind of like how students jump up out of their seats when the bell rings, regardless of whether or not the teacher is done talking!! ] (More)
