Tulving's Part/Whole Paradigm
- STM- maintenance is through rehearsal. (repeating a phone number to yourself over and over before you dial it)
- LTM- maintenance is through organization (see Tulving's Part/Whole Paradigm)
- people asked to study a list of 16 words, after they've learned the words, he split the group in 2: Group 1 was given a list of 32 words composed of the original 16+16 new ones, Group 2 was given a list of 32 new words. Group 2 performed better because of subjective organization. When given something to remember one imposes one's own organization onto the to-be-remembered material. Organization helps mainly because it formulated the rules of access into memory.
