02/23/16 CHAPTER 6 Memory Recall (Self-Generating) vs. Recognition (Familiarity) Processes 1) Encoding – putting info in  learning / making associations 2) Storage – keeping info there – keeping info active 3) Retrieval – getting info out 3-Stage/ Modal Model 1) Sensory Memory (Buffer/ Register) - Capacity: Large/ Everything in our senses - Duration: 50 ms – 1s Persistence of Vision/Sound 2) Short Term Memory- Capacity: Chunking - Duration: 15-20 s 3) Long Term Memory- Capacity: Unlimited - Duration: Unlimited Transfer to LTM Processing Levels: Automatic (encoding – implicit association) – Shallow Processing- Unconscious/ Minimal Conscious Attention Effortful (Conscious) – Deep connecting to info already in LTM Spaced (Ahead off time) vs. Massed (Cramming) Practice – Attention (1) & Memory Consolidation (2) Testing Effect: Retrieval Practice 02/25/16 Memory at the Neural Level 1)Encoding 2)Storage 3) Retrieval Synaptic Changes- Wiring Together = Long-Term Potentiation –strengthening of a synapse, in likelihood that a postsynaptic neuron will fire Retrieval 1) #NT released up 2) # Post-synaptic receptors up Retrieval Cues- Recognition  Things that were encoded a the time of learning Context- Depend. Memory- Encoding Specificity State- Depend./ Mood Congruency  Environment  Implicitly Assoc. w/ “to-be-learned” material Working Memory Sensory  WM   LTM Forgetting? = Difficulty in Access of Memory Encoding (Attentional) Failure – didn’t properly/effectively get information in Vs. Retrieval Failure  Storage Decay (= “slow death” of synapeses) = Forgetting – Difficulty in firing due to decrease in strength to synapses (opposite of LTP)  Interference/ Construction Errors ( Retrieval is “Re- Constructive”) - Misinformation Effect  Misleading Post Event Info (MPI)  Source Amnesia
