Attention – Makes sensory memory, short term memory Sensory memory – Sensory input goes in sensory memory for things we see and hear. Capacity=Limitless. More input goes in than you can remember. Example: You look down Forbes avenue for a second, everything you see and hear is there, but you cannot remember it all. Memory – The retention of information over time through the process of encoding, storage, and retrieval Working Memory – Developed by Baddley. Says short term memory is the most complex form of memory. Visual and sound memory are separate. (working memory and short term memory are considered the same to the public) Encoding – The process by which information gets into memory storage Short term memory – Can remember 7+ or – 2 chunks.Smaller capacity than sensory memory. Remains as long as you repeat rehearsal. Storage- Goes back and forth between short and long term memory. Long term goes from short to long term. Long term memory – Fades after 30 seconds. Limit is undetermined. Retrieval- Long term memory retrieves information from short term memory.
