background image 9/19 Memory Memory Memory: the nervous system’s capacity to retain and retrieve skills and
knowledge
-We have multiple memory systems, and each memory system 
has its own “rules”
Information Processing Theory Sensory inputEncodingStorageRetrieval Memory is the Processing of Information Encoding: the processing of info so that it can be stored Storage: the retention of encoded representatives over time Consolidation: the neural process by which encoded information 
becomes stored in memory
Retrieval: the act of recalling or remembering stored information when 
it is needed
Reconsolidation: neural processes involved when memories are 
recalled and then stored again for retrieval
Sensory Memory is Brief Sensory memory: a memory system that very briefly stores sensory 
information in close to its original sensory form
-Consists of brief traces on the nervous system that reflect 
perpetual processes
-Persists for about 1/3 of a second and then progressively fades

a limited amount of information in awareness
-Working memory: an active processing system that keeps 
different types
sensory inputsensory memoryshort-term memorylong-term memory Memory Span and Chunking Memory span refers to the amount of information held in working
