(2) models of MEMORY

- INFORMATION-PROCESSING MODEL
- LEVELS OF PROCESSING MODEL

2

The INFORMATION-PROCESSING MODEL is also called the...

- THREE BOX MODEL

3

"this model proposes the THREE STAGES that INFORMATION passes THRU before it is STORED"

- INFORMATION PROCESSING MODEL

4

"External events are first processed by our .. .. Then some information is encoded into our .. ../.. memory. Some of that information is then encoded into .. .. ..

- SENSORY MEMORY
- SHORT TERM/WORKING MEMORY
- LONG TERM MEMORY

5

GEORGE SPERLING?

- demonstrated that information held in SENSORY MEMORY stayed for a split second
- experiment: grid--> nine letters; showed to participants 1/20th sec. participants could recall any of three rows perfectly.

6

"split-second perfect photograph of a scene"

- ICONIC MEMORY

7

"perfect, brief (3-4 sec) memory for sounds"

- ECHOIC MEMORY

8

What determines what sensory messages get encoded?

- SELECTIVE ATTENTION

9

"You have probably had the experience of speaking with one person at a party but then hearing someone say your name across the room. You were SELECTIVELY ATTENDING to the person you were talking to. However, once a SENSORY MESSAGE message entered SENSORY MEMORY that you knew was IMPORTANT, you SWITCHED your ATTENTION to that message, and it was encoded into your STM."

- COCKTAIL PARTY EFFECT

10

STM is also called .. .. because these are the memories we are currently working with and are .. of in our ..

- WORKING MEMORY
- AWARE
- CONSCIOUSNESS

11

GEORGE MILLER?

- established STM capacity to 7 (+/-)2 in a series of famous experiments

12

Fancy way to say MEMORY AIDS..

- MNEMONIC DEVICES

13

"My very excellent mother just served us nine pizzas" --> names of planets

- MNEMONIC DEVICE

14

WAYS to RETAIN information in STM (3)

- CHUNKING (DIVIDING INFO INTO GROUPS)
- MNEMONIC DEVICES
- REHEARSAL

15

LONG TERM MEMORIES can be STORED in (3) different FORMATS

- EPISODIC
- SEMANTIC
- PROCEDURAL

16

"memories of SPECIFIC EVENTS, stored in a sequential series of events. Example: remembering the last time you went on a date."

- EPISODIC MEMORY

17

"GENERAL KNOWLEDGE of the WORLD, stored as FACTS, MEANINGS, or CATEGORIES rather than sequentially. Example: What is the difference between effect and affect?"

- SEMANTIC MEMORY

18

"Memories of SKILLS and how to PERFORM them. These memories are sequential but might be very complicated to describe in words. Example: how to throw a curveball."

- PROCEDURAL MEMORY

19

"CONSCIOUS MEMORIES of facts or events we ACTIVELY tried to remember"

- EXPLICIT MEMORIES

20

"UNINTENTIONAL MEMORIES that we might not even realize that we have."

- IMPLICIT MEMORIES

21

another word for PHOTOGRAPHIC MEMORY...

- EIDETIC MEMORY

22

ALEXANDRA LURIA?

- studied patient with EIDETIC MEMORY

23

"This THEORY explains WHY we REMEMBER what we do by examining how DEEPLY the memory was PROCESSED or thought about."

- LEVELS OF PROCESSING MODEL

24

"Memories are neither short term nor long term. They are .. .. or .. processed."

-->LEVELS OF PROCESSING MODEL
- DEEPLY PROCESSED (ELABORATELY)
- SHALLOWLY PROCESSED (MAINTENANCE)

25

According to the LEVELS OF PROCESSING THEORY, we remember things we spend more .. .. and .. processing

- COGNITIVE TIME
- ENERGY

26

"This theory explains why we remember .. better than simple recitation of events and why, in general, we remember .. better than statements. When we get caught up in a '', or and intriguing '', we process it .. and are therefore more likely to remember it."

--> LEVELS OF PROCESSING MODEL
- STORIES
- QUESTIONS
- DEEPLY

27

(2) different kinds of RETRIEVAL

- RECOGNITION
- RECALL

28

"process of MATCHING a CURRENT EVENT or fact with one already in MEMORY" – have I smelled this smell before? a multiple choice question – the answer is there

- RECOGNITION

29

"retrieving a memory with an EXTERNAL CUE" – hmm, what does my friend Sophie's perfume smell like?

- RECALL

30

HERMAN EBBINGHAUS?

- ESTABLISHED THE ORDER OF ITEMS IN A LIST IS RELATED TO WHETHER OR NOT WE WILL RECALL THEM
