CHAPTER 5 16/03/2008 18:14:00 Memory- the processes involved in retaining, retrieving, and using information  about stimuli, images, events, ideas, and skills after the original information is no longer  present. - We also use memory to remember what we need to do later that day, to  remember facts we have learned, and to use skills we have acquired. The Modal Model of Memory: - proposed by Richard Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin - it has stages called structural features: Sensory Memory- the initial stage that holds all the incoming information for  seconds or fractions of a second. Short Term Memory- holds 5-7 items for about 15-30 seconds. Long Term Memory- can hold a large amount of information for years or even  decades. - control processes: Strategies you might use to help make a stimulus more memorable, such as  relating the numbers in a phone number to a familiar date in history
