COGNITIVE PSYCHOLOGY PSY 3010 – Week #6  Working Memory – Like a mental chalkboard, limited holding area. o Multi­Tasking – Not doing multiple things at once. Rather, your brain shifts all  of its attention very quickly from one thing to another.  Example: Watching a YouTube video while listening to music and trying  to write an essay. You don’t do all of these things at once. Your brain  shifts very quickly from focusing on the video to listening to the music to  writing the essay. o The only way you can hold things in your working memory is through  maintenance rehearsal (repeating something over and over again).  An example of maintenance rehearsal would be repeating a phone number to yourself over and over again until you can write it down. o The Working Memory (Short­Term Memory) only lasts between 5 and 20 seconds. o The way you get things from your Working Memory (also called “Short­Term  Memory”) to your Long­Term Memory is through Encoding (also called  “Storage”)  Encoding – Doing something special so you remember something.  Encoding is more involved than rehearsal. o Long­Term Memory – Long­term Memory is infinite (unlimited capacity to  obtain new information). The reason people can’t remember things (such as why  you may not be able to remember an answer for a test that you’ve been studying a lot for) is because people struggle with Retrieval. o Chunking – Chunking is taking information from Short­Term Memory and  putting it into groups so it is easier to remember. o Most people can hold 5­9 things in their Short­Term Memory (7 things on  average).
