Description
Chapter 7 Human Memory - Encoding: forming a memory code (usually requires attention). - Storage: maintaining encoded information in memory over time. - Retrieval: recovering information from memory stores. - Cocktail party phenomenon: attention involves late selection, based on the meaning of input. - Working memory: phonological loop (recitation to temporarily remember something), visuospatial sketchpad (temporarily hold and manipulate visual images), central executive system (switching the focus of attention and dividing attention as needed), episodic buffer (temporary, limited-capacity store that allows the various components of working memory to integrate information and that serves as an interfere between working memory and LTM). - There is no evidence that memories are stored away permanently and that forgetting is all a matter of retrieval failure. www.notesolution.com
