Document Summary

Memory - recalling past events and past learning by means of encoding, storage, and retrieval. Paradox of memory: the same mechanisms that serve us well most of the time can cause us problems in others, amazing feats of memory, memory is surprisingly malleable. Memory involves three processes: encoding - putting information into a form the brain can understand and get into memory, storage - process of retaining memories in the bran, retrieval - recovering stored memories. Parallel distributed model - similar to how neurons form networks in our brain. Two ways to encode: automatic processing - automatically remember something with no effort, effortful processing - work to memorize something. Working memory: holds 5-9 pieces of information, chunking increases amount we can hold, the best way to keep things in working memory is through rehearsal/repetition. Information as you learn it: encode memory to get info into lt memory.
