Chapter 6 MEMORY PROCESSES THE LEVELS-OF-PROCESSING VIEW Argue that there is only one kind of memory storage, but different kinds of info processing take place within that store. Levels-of-processing theory of memory Memory depends not on how long material is stored or on the kind of storage in which the material is held, but on the initial encoding of the info to be remembered; focuses on the way material is encoded. The fundamental assumptionretention and coding of info depend on the kind of perceptual analysis done on the material at encoding. Improvement in memory comes not from rehearsal and repetition but from greater depth of analysis of the material Experiment: Craik and Tulving Present w a series of questions abt particular words, later give a surprise memory test. Incidental learning (any learning happened to occur, inadvertently) 3 kinds of questions 1) Capital letter? Typeface (physical processing) 2) Rhymed w another word? Sound (acoustic processing) 3) Word fit in the sentence? Meaning (semantic processing) Depth of the processing needed is greatest. Words processed semantically were remembered best. www.notesolution.com
