        • Acoustic
          • Acoustic is the way in which information is retrieved using sound
        • Visual
          • Viual encoding is when we use an image to retrieve information from our memory
        • Semantic
          • Semantic Encoding is when you start putting meaning to the content to retrieve it at a later stage e.g. a story.
        • Definition
          • Information is exchanged or encoded so that it can be stored
      • Storage
        • Storage is encoded information is stored in the memory so that it can be accessed at a later stage
      • Retrieval
        • Definition: accessing the information from the storage
    • STM/LTM
      • STM
        • Encoding - Acoustically/Viually
        • Duration - 30 seconds
        • Capacity - George Miller(1956) claimed that we can hold anything between 5 and 9 objects in our STM. This is know as the magic number 7+/2-
      • LTM
        • Duration - Anything from a few seconds to a lifetime
        • Capacity - Potentially Unlimited
        • Encoding - Acoustically, Visually or Semantically
      • Processes
        • Duration - How long can the information last in the memory?
        • Capacity - How much can it hold?
        • Encoding - How does it get in there?
    • Multi-Store Model
    • Untitled
  • Encoding - How does it get in there?




Good resource here too on memory for gcse psychology - currently 3 areas covered but rest are appearing slowly.



love this thankss



This is a great mind map which includes definitions and processes of memory.



Love this mind map, it is organised well and is extremely useful for GCSE revision for the processes of memory topic, thank you! :)



As a psychology student, I can confirm this has ALL the details you will need to know in the memory topic in GCSE Psyc.
