Atkinson and Shiffrin

  • Sensory store, short term store and long term store.
  • Information from our environment initially goes into sensory memory. If it is paid attention too it will be encoded and passed on to the short-term memory.
  • Short term memory has a finite capacity and duration. If information is processed further then it can be transferred to long term memory. In theory, information can then remain there forever.

Supporting Studies

  • The Primacy Effect - Research shows that participants are able to recall the first few items of a list better than those from the middle. This is supported by the multi store
