Chapter 7 - Human Memory

Confabulation - think you remember, but just making it up
Why do we confabulate remembering things that don't exist?
- we have specific assumptions of what something should be and conform to those
assumptions
"Memory goes where attention flows"
Memory
- can't remember smell, but can recognize it
Encoding
- attention is a limited skill
- no memory without attention
Levels of Processing
-Automatic processing in the most shallowest form
-Phonemic encoding involves repetition (long process, not very efficient)
-Deep processing gets better results
Facilitating Encoding
- Elaboration: examples
- Self Referential Encoding: remember information better if it relates to us
- Rehearsal and Over-learning: not most efficient use of time
- Deep Processing: take something old and attach to new thing to help remember
- Transfer Appropriate Processing: don't study the same way for every test (study
m/c Qs if m/c test; short answer test, ask Q c if can answer)
