Chapter 7: Memory
Objective:
Know the Atkinson-Shiffrin Model of memory
Understand working memory
Be able to explain encoding, retrieval, and forgetting
Know how memories are organized and constructed
Atkinson Shiffrin Model (1971)
Attention:
Attention serves as a filter
Attention directed to only some of the incoming stimuli for further
processing (sent to STM)
Otherwise the info is not remembered
Memory Stores:
Sensory memory
Short- term memory
Long- term memory
Capacity of memory stores
Sensory memory:
Input is repetitive (occurs before recognition/identification)
Capacity is unlimited
Duration is .25-2secs.
Echoic sensory stores (auditory info 5 secs)
Iconic sensory store (visual info ½-1secs)
How do we know this? Sperling’s study
Sperling’s study (1960) whole- report technique
Procedure:
Display 12 letters for 50 milliseconds
Asked to report as many as they could
Results:
On average 4.5 letters remembered
Sperling’s study (1960): Partial-report technique
Procedure:
Display 12 letters
Tone produced
High pitch= top row
Medium pitch= middle row
Low pitch= bottom row
Asked to report as many letters as they could
Results:
People remembered 3 letters
Short-term memory:
Input is attended
Up to 30 seconds, duration
Capacity is limited (7+/-2)
How do we know? Digit span/ memory span studies
Digit span/memory span task
Procedure:
Present a long sequence of items (letters) to participate
Participants recall the items in the order they were presented
Results:
often able to recall string of 7 items
Capacity of short-term memory
Miller (1956)
Chunking items involves combining items into groups
By chunking, more items can be stored in short-term memory
How many items can be combined to form a chunk? Varies from person. De Groot
(1955)
Long-term memory:
Input is rehearsed, imaged, or coded (represented as semantic associations)
Capacity is unlimited
Minutes- years (unlimited) duration
Declarative memories (explicit)
Semantic memories
Episodic memories
Nondeclarative memories (implicit)
Procedural
Serial position effect
Rundus (1971) experiment:
Study phase:
Nouns presented one at at time (20 times per list)
Presented each word for 5 seconds
Rehearse the words aloud during 5 sec. intervals
Test phase:
Free recall
Results:
Better recall of items at the beginning and end of list
U-shaped recall curve known as serial position effect
Primacy effect: better recall of items at the beginning of the list
Opportunity to rehearse earlier items more often than later items
More rehearsal greater probability items enter LTM for retrieval

OneClass has been such a huge help in my studies at UofT especially since I am a transfer student. OneClass is the study buddy I never had before and definitely gives me the extra push to get from a B to an A!

Balancing social life With academics can be difficult, that is why I'm so glad that OneClass is out there where I can find the top notes for all of my classes. Now I can be the all-star student I want to be.

As a college student living on a college budget, I love how easy it is to earn gift cards just by submitting my notes.
