# Psy 1 - Memory model (MULTI-STORE MODEL)

HideShow resource information
What is the Multi-store memory made up of?
Sensory memory - Short term memory - *REHEARSAL LOOP* - Long term memory
1 of 9
What is the encoding/ duration/ capacity fo the Sensroy memory?
Encoding is audority and visual/ Duration is a fraction of a second/ Capacity is very large
2 of 9
What is the encoding / duration/ capacity of the Long term memory?
Encoding is Semantic/ Duration is up to a life time/ capacity is unlimited
3 of 9
What is the encoding/ duration/ capacity of the Short term memory?
Encoding is Audority/ capacity is 7+-2 item/ Duration is 18-30 second max
4 of 9
Give a study into the duration of the Long term memory?
Beharak et al . Aim to find out the duration of Long term memory. FIndings were that even after 50 years graduates could still remeber there class mates. Conclusion is that LTM duration is up to a life time
5 of 9
Give a study into the encoding of LTM?
Baddeley. Aim to find out how the LTM is encoded. Finding that using the LTM particpants remember semantically similar word better than audority similar word. Conclusion is that the LTM encodes semantically
6 of 9
Give a study into encoding of the STM?
Baddeley. Aim to find out how the STM is enocded. Findings were when rehearsal was prevented participants remember auditory similar word better than semantically similar words
7 of 9
Give a study into the duration of the STM?
Aim to find out when rehearsal was prevented how long was the duration of the STM. FInding participants on average could remeber the given words for 18-30 second therfore the duration of the STM must be 18-30 second max
8 of 9
Give a study into the capacity of the STM?
Aim to find out when rehearsal was prevented what the capacity of the STM is . Finding participants could remember around 5-9 letters therefor the capacity of the STM is 7+-2 item
