View mindmap
  • Multi-Store Model (Atkinson and Shiffrin)
    • AO1
      • Encoding- the way info is changed to a form that can be stored
      • Capacity- how much info can be stored
      • Duration- period of time info can last in memory stores
      • Diagram
    • AO2
      • Research to Support
        • Glanzer and Cunitz
          • list of words- remembered first and last few
            • serial position effect
              • shows separate stores= primary and regency effect
                • early words- LTM- primary effect
                  • late words- STM- regency effect
      • good understanding of structure of STM
        • allows researchers to expand on model
          • experiments to improve model- more valid and prove functions of stores
      • STM/LTM more complicated than thought
        • WMM- STM= more than one simple unitary store
          • uses different components (central executive etc)
      • Rehearsal helps info to LTM- not essential
        • can recall info not rehearsed
          • means rehearsal is much less important than Atkinson and Shiffrin claimed

    • Glanzer and Cunitz
      • list of words- remembered first and last few
