HideShow resource information
What did Baddeley (1966) study?
STM and LTM (tested the effects of acoustic and semantic similarity in short term and long term recall)
1 of 8
What did Baddeley (1966) do?
Participants lists of words which were acoustically similar or dissimilar and words that were semantically similar or dissimilar
2 of 8
What did Baddeley (1966) find?
That participants had difficulty remembering acoustically similar words in STM but not in LTM , whereas semantically similar words posed little problem for short term recall but led to muddled LTM.
3 of 8
What does this suggest/show?
That encoding in STM is acoustic and encoding in LTM is semantic.

LTM may sometimes use other codes. Frost (1972) shows that long l
