multi-store model

HideShow resource information
how does information get into the sensory memory store?
incoming stimuli enter the STM which last about 2 seconds. This is several stores recieving information from the 5 senses.
1 of 8
what happens in the sensory memory store?
If information isnt attended to it is lost but if it is attended to then its transferred into the short term memory
2 of 8
what happens in the short term memory?
STM has a limited duration (up to 30 sec) andlimited capacity (7+/-2). Information can be lost due to displacement or decay.Information is mainly encoded acoustically.information is held in STM through maintainace rehersal.
3 of 8
how does information get into the long term memory?
information is transferred into the LTM throught use of elaborative rehersal- using semantic encoding primarily.
4 of 8
what happens in the long term memory?
LTM has unlimited capacity and duration can last a lifetime. to retrieve information for use it must be retrieved into STM again. It can be lost from LTM through decay, retrival failure and interference
5 of 8
evidence to support multi-store model
serial position curve- Glazer and Cunitz (20 words ) / physiological evidence
6 of 8
evidence not supporting multi-store model
KF case study - brain damage due to motorcycle accident / Role of rehearsal -flashbulb memory
7 of 8
evaluation of multi-store model
over -emphasis on linear direction of MSM / Difference between maintanance rehearsal and elaborative rehearsal
