Flashcards in The Multi Store Model Deck (11):
What is coding for sensory register?
Visual, acoustic and semantic (meaning)
What is the capacity for sensory register?
All sensory experiences
What is the duration of the sensory register?
-0.25 to 0.5 seconds
What is the coding for STM?
What is the capacity for STM?
7 +/- 2 items
What is the duration of STM?
7 - 30 seconds
What is the coding for LTM?
Mainly semantic (but could be visual and acoustic)
What is the capacity for LTM?
What is the duration of LTM?
Unlimited (can decay however)
What are the positive evaluation points for the multi-store model?
- supported by research
Baddeley gave p's 1 of 2 word lists, one had acoustically similar words, the other didn't
- brain scanning research done
Supports the msm proposal that there are distinct 3 memory stores that may be in distinct brain areas.
- msm had stimulated lots of other research
Led to a greater understanding to how memory works
