  • Multi-store model of memory
    • What?
      • memory processes
      • 3 separate stores
        • LTM
        • STM
        • SM
      • characteristics
        • encoding
        • duration
        • capacity
    • How?
      • information at STM
      • SM-->STM
      • STM - displace or decay
      • STM-->LTM
    • Research
      • SM = Sperling
        • Lab
        • 12 digits/letters
        • 50 millisecond delay
        • 5 items = 42%
        • 3 items = 75%
        • Rapid decay
      • serial position effect = glanzer and cunitz
        • lab
        • list = words
        • recall = primary (start) effect
        • recall = recency (end) effect
        • 1st words= recall --> LTM
        • last words = recall -->STM
      • Brain scans = Beardsley
        • frontal cortex = STM tasks
        • squire et al. hippocampus = LTM
          • HM
            • Scoville and Milner
              • form new LTM = hippocampus removed
    • Evaluation
      • strengths
        • research supports
        • testable predications
      • limitations
        • rehearsal not always true
          • Craik and Tulving
        • model overcomplicated
        • STM + LTM not unitary stores
          • LTM
            • semantic
            • episodic
            • procedural
            • PRS
          • STM
            • verbal
            • visual
          • spiers et al
            • amnesiac patients
              • intact = procedural + PRS
              • other LTM not intact
        • STM not seperate from LTM
          • Ruchkin et al
            • brain activity different when processing real or pseudo-words
