PSY 102 Lecture Notes - Lecture 7: Long-Term Memory, Sensory Memory, Shy Child
Some core piece of our psychological identity remains the same; however we change physically over time. Sensory register: coined by sperling (1960s) presenting people with information very rapidly, for short period of time. If participants are able to take in three items of a specific row, they should be able to report three letters from each row (puzzle), but they didn"t, they only got four letters. You think you didn"t hear it, but you can quickly go back to what they said (retrieve it from sensory registry) Sensations -> perceptions (as soon as we start thinking about it) M: you wouldn"t recall it as a visual image, rather a sound, transform visual information into auditory information -> stm. It"s easier to memorize through verbal form rather than visual (vice versa = difficult: chinese letters (have no choice) => difficult to memorize as a visual image.
