Psych Notes March 28, 2007 Techniques to build memory Massed vs. distributed practice Massed- all at once, distributed- split it up Distributed practice works much better. - Divide your studying up over many different time periods. With breaks in between The method of Loci: - Take a route or path, put the things you need to remember at spots along your route. You make an image of the fact interacting with that spot on the path. - When it is time to recall the material. Take the mental trip . Think of yourself going down that path. The first spot on the list, will be associated with a thing you need to remember. - The location will provide a very good retrieval cue - By making the interactive image, you are engaging in elaborative encoding, taking the thing you need to remember and associating it with something you will later use as a retrieval cue. (the spot on the path). Maintenance rehearsal – going over things again and again. Rereading your notes over and over to study. Elaborative encoding is much more effective at putting things into long term memory, but its difficult. After class, tell your imaginary friend all about what you learned about in the lecture
