Kim Kardashian's marriage that lasted 72 days and ended in divorce Consummate Love: has all 3: passion, intimacy, commitment; people continue to be passionate with one another 15 years into marriage, continue to delight in one another, can't imagine wanting anyone else. Sternberg believes this is the ultimate or highest form of love but cautions that while this can be achieved this is very hard to maintain and is usually not a permanent form of love Nonlove: absence of all 3 components; characterizes the majority of our personal relationships, which are casual interactions; applies to acquaintances or someone you're not so attached to Memory Know the 3 parts of the memory system: Sensory memory (sensory register), short-term memory, long-term memory. Know what each of these do and the differences among them such as how much information (span) they can hold and for how long (duration). Sensory Memory (or sensory register) The first system, sensory memory , is tied to our perceptions of the world (e.g., memories for sounds or visual stimuli); it holds these perceptions for just a few seconds or less before passing some of them on to the second system . o Iconic memory: visual sensory memory o Echoic memory: auditory sensory memory o Eidetic memory: photographic memory (very rare & lasts longer) Short-Term Memory Once information makes it past our sensory buffers, it passes into our short- term memory, a second system for retaining information in our memories for brief periods of time. This second system, short- term memory, works actively with the information handed to it, transforming it into more meaningful material before passing some of it on to the third system. 6

Short-term memory lasts about 20 seconds or less so to prevent forgetting o rehearse or repeat the information o pay close attention o organize the information into shorter meaningful units Chunking: organizing material into meaningful groupings so as to expand our ability to remember things in short term memory. Decay: memory fading over time Long Term Memory Relatively enduring store of information. It includes the facts, experiences, and skills we’ve acquired over our lifetimes. It's just about permanent. How do we get information into our long-term memories? Three major processes of memory: encoding (input), storage, and retrieval. It's like a computer model: you input info into the computer, store it on the hard drive, and then retrieve it - print it out, put it on a flash drive We shouldn’t confuse these three processes with the three systems of memory (sensory, short- term, and long- term). The 3 processes explain how information gets transferred into long- term memory and gets back out again when we need it 1. Encoding = Input Encoding refers to the process of getting information into our memory banks, into the brain. To remember something, we first need to make sure the information is in a format our memories can use.

    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.
