Card Set Information
an internal record or representation of some prior event or experience
Constructive process is
the organization and shaping of info during processing, storage, and retrevial of memories
the process of translating info into the neural language that will be retained in memory
the process of retaining nueally coded info over time
the three steps in memory processing is
encoding, storage, retrieval
If you want to learn and remember info
organize stuff into catergories or patterns
directs our attention to things we concider important
interferes with encoding
keyboard, moniter, hard drive
encoding, retrieval, storage
Difference between memory processes and computer memory processes is
human process occur simultaneously wheras computer processes occur sequentially
Our brain performs multiple parallel operations at one times is called
parallel distributed processing, connectionist model of memory
the computer analogue
approach suggests that memory results from connections among multiple simultaneous networks.
Our need to process info rapidly for survival purposes is mostly supported by the
parallel distributed processing approach to memory
The three stage memory model
sensory, short term, long lerm
info lasts for a few seconds or less large but now unlimited storage capacity. 1/2 second to 4 seconds
is why you can recall what someone said several months ago, even if you were absorved in another tast when they first said it.
stores sensory info while deciding whether to send to it ltm. can hold for 30 seconds
is the process of repeating info over and over to maintain it in the stm.
the process of grouping separate peices of info into a single unit to store more info
stm recieves info from
sensory and long term memory
long term memory
stores info for long periods of time.
greatest capacity and longest duration
baddeles working memory
phonological rehearsal loop
The phonological rehearsal loop is
holds and manipulates verbal information
two major systems of long term memory are
explicit and implicit
the general knowledge youve learned so far is
knowlede of facts and the relationships between them is called
knowledge of events is called
creation and storage of the basic memory trace.
encodes memories and storage of skill learning and working memory
formation of new memories.
