Memory Memory- the nervous systems capacity to retain and retrieve skills and knowledge  We have multiple memory systems and each memory system has its own “rules” Information Processing Theory 1. Sensory input 2. Encoding: entering the information in neural code 3. Storage: info is stored in the brain 4. Retrieval: info is retrieved when needed Memory is the Processing of Information  Encoding: processing of info so It can be stored  Storage: retention of encoded representations over time  Consolidation: neural process by which encoded information becomes stored in memory  Retrieval: act of recalling stored information when 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 o Consists of brief traces on the nervous system that reflects perceptual processes o Persists for about 1/3 of a second and then progressively fades Working Memory is Active  Material is passed from sensory memory to short term memory o Short term memory: memory storage system that briefly holds a limited amount of information awareness (use it or lost it in about 20 seconds) o Working memory: an active processing system that keeps different types of information available for current use
