Conclusions Memory is central to mental function Attention is limited, controls what we are aware of Phonological and visual representations behave in many ways like speech and vision Working memory systems are largely independent – dissociation What is consciousness good for? Bottleneck in what we can process Limitations suggest that it is ‘expensive’ Prevents us from being responsive to too much? Focus is an important feature of cognition which prevents us from constantly shifting attention to focus on something of importance Encoding to LTM Control of Memory To be remember an even must: Activate receptors and be transduced into sensory memory Must enter working memory Must be stored/encoded consciously or unconsciously in LTM Must be retrieved from LTM Failure at any step prevents memory Focuses on processes of encoding and retrieval today Long Term Memory Depth of processing Repetition is a poor predictor of successful retrieval Elaborative processing is better, depends on integration or understanding (many associations?)

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.
