Chapter 6 from “Mastering the World of Psychology” by Samuel E. Wood, Ellen Green Wood, Denise Boyd, 5th edition Pg 179. STRUCTURE OF HUMAN MEMORY Information-Processing Theory: “framework for studying memory that uses the computer as a model of human cognitive processes” Hardware: brain structures involved in memory Software: learned memory strategies Encoding: process of transforming information into a form that can be stored in memory Storage: process of keeping or maintaining information in memory Consolidation: physiological change in the brain that happens so encoded information can be stored Retrieval: process of bringing to mind information that has been stored in memory Memory: process of encoding, storage, and retrieval of information Pg 180. SENSORY MEMORY Sensory Memory: memory that holds information from the senses for a brief period of about a fraction of a second to about 2 seconds Eidetic Imagery: “photographic memory,” rare ability to retain the image of a visual stimulus for several minutes after it has been removed from view SHORT TERM MEMORY Short-Term Memory (STM): holds about seven items for less than 30 seconds without rehearsal; also called working memory because it works with what you are thinking now Pg 181. Capacity Displacement: when short-term memory is filled to capacity, each new item pushes out an existing item, which is then forgotten Chunking: Geroge A. Miller, grouping or organizing bits of information into larger units Ex: used to memorize things like phone numbers or social security Duratio
