Memory Memory and Information Processing Mental Representations Representational modes are like languages that permit conversation within the mind. Sensory Representations Store information in sensory mode such as the sound of a flute. Verbal Representations Store information as words. Information Processing: An Evolving Model Sensory Registers Hold information about a perceived stimulus for a fraction of a second. Short-Term Memory A brief sensory representation of a stimulus with limited capacity. Rehearsal Maintenance Rehearsal: Mental repetition that allows memory to remain in short term memory – as long as it is rehearsed. Elaborative Rehearsal: Thinking about the information as you commit it to memory – typically placing the new information into long term memory. Long-Term Memory Representations of facts, images, thoughts, feelings, skills and experiences that may reside in memory for as long as a lifetime. Retrieval The process of bringing information back from long term memory into short term memory. The Evolution of a Model Although the standard model of memory provides a clear foundation for understanding memory phenomena it is an evolving model that changes with new empirical evidence and theoretical thinking.

What students are saying

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    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.
