Angela Kramperth Barber 2/26/08 HW 7 1. The input devices would be the actual memories being stored. If you “typed” something or clicked on a picture to remember it. The RAM would be your short term memory because it is there to help you remember what you need to know at that certain point in time, the immediate stuff. The hard drive would be the long term memory, because it has a lot of storage but not all of it is used all at once, so some of it is stored. 2. I think “chunking” would be the method used for this, if the numbers are stacked into meaningful units or chunks, and it lets the person sort of trick their brain into remembering more. 3. I could ask the witness to recall everything that happened that night, and since this is stored in their iconic memory they probably won’t be able to remember every little detail, the way that could help is I could say point out something they got “wrong” from their recollection and then point out that this eye witness isn’t

Unformatted text preview: validated because of their poor memory. 4. Visuals are stored in short-term memory. A person doesn’t really remember everything, unless they “rehearse” this memory so that it is eventually stored into their long-term memory.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
