PSY57 Memory and Cognition
Lecture 8 Visual Imagery and Spatial Cognition
Visual Imagery and Memory
1.Visual imagery: picturing events in your mind
i.e. when a friend is recounting a story to you and you visualize the storyline in your
mind
1.
2.Mnemonics: various techniques used to increase chances of remembering; many
use imagery
1.Keyword method: 2-step technique for remembering foreign language
vocabulary; when on thinks of the keyword, the image of the foreign word will also
come to mind; eventually tapers off once the word is used more often
1.Think of an English word that sounds like the foreign word the keyword
2.Visualize the keyword (or phrase) interacting with the foreign word in some way
2.Method of loci: imagining a series of locations, typically somewhere familiar, in
a specific order and imagining the items that need to be remembered in those
locations
3. Pegword method: create an image of memory items by associating an ordered
list to an another set of easily recalled list of nouns (ordered cues) and imagining
the memory items interacting with one of the nouns
3.Dual code hypothesis: memory contains 2 distinct coding systems; improves
memory over having only a single code
1.Verbal (abstract, linguistic meaning)
2.Imagery (mental pictures)
1.Pavio (1965): experiment of 4 different noun pair conditions (CC, CA, AC, AA); C
concrete, A abstract
1.People spontaneously make images for concrete nouns
2. Imagery varies with concreteness

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!
