  • Multi store model
    • 1) Information is received by the sensory stores.
    • 2) Some of the information in the sensory stores is further processed by the short term memory.
    • 3) Information in the short term memory is transferred into long term memory by rehearsal.
    • STM - Miller determined people can only remember 7 +/- 2 chunks of info
    • Atkinson & Shiffrin said there was only one long term memory store.
      • Cohen  & Squire argued there was two: Declarative and procedural knowledge.
    • Advantages:  brain damage patients, encoding, duration, capacity.
    • Disadvantage: rehearsal, simplistic, single STM store.
