Schema Theory                                                                                                      Memory

  • Schema - used to fill in the blanks in the input and to give it a meaning
  • An idea and script about the world
  • Schemata affect how we reconstruct our memories
  • Allows more efficient processing 
  • Schemas can be changed by new knowledge and experience
  • Encoding - new knowledge that conflicts with an existing schema might not be encoded as it doesn't fit with what you expect
  • Retrieval -
