Outline and evaluate research that supports the multi-store model. The multi-store model consists of three different types of memory store, sensory memory, short term memory and long term memory. Information enters the sensory memory and if attention is paid to the information it is passed on to short term memory, if it is not paid attention the information will be lost. Once in short term memory, information is either transferred into long term memory by rehearsal or is lost. The recency effect appears in serial recall tasks.
Outline and evaluate the multi-store model of memory. (12 marks) The multi store model of memory is the system that describes the process of memorising things and is an information processing system that we all have. The MSM is split into three sections they are: sensory, short term memory and long term memory. The researchers that came up with this idea were Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968. They investigated the idea that memory wasn’t a single process but involved more than one stage.
The research carried out allowed us to confirm that using the method of loci would improve and an individual’s recall. Introduction The Multi-Store Model (MSM) of Memory was proposed by Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968 and claimed the memory system contained three structural components. Sensory memory (SM) stores information that is collected by our senses (sight, smell, hearing etc.). This information is received continually but the majority is ignored and only stored for a brief moment of time. At this point it is either disregarded or transferred to the short term memory (STM) store.
Sarah Khan Psychology – Mr. Barr Friday 21st September 2012 Essay Question: Outline and Evaluate the Multi-Store Model of Memory Cognitive Psychologists Atkinson and Shiffrin first proposed the Multi-Store Model (MSM) in 1968. It was the first computer-based model of memory, consequently becoming very influential in the field of cognitive psychology. The MSM consists of three separate stores that are interlinked; it is presented in a linear fashion with the Sensory Store linking to the Short Term Memory (STM). Information is then passed back and forth between the STM and the Long term Memory (LTM). The first component in MMS is the Sensory Store (SS) where the ‘External Stimulus’ (information) is received.
Outline and Evaluate the Multi-Store of Memory The idea of a multi-store memory, was discovered by Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968, and argues that memory can be divided into three separate structures; Sensory memory, Short-term memory and Long-term memory. Information is thought to enter the memory system through the Sensory memory, then passed on to the Short Term memory when attention is paid to it. If this information is thought about and rehearsed in the Short Term memory it is passed to the Long-Term Memory to help interpret information in Short Term Memory. The Sensory Memory, which is uses visual, auditory and tactile encoding, has a limited capacity however, and a brief duration, so for information to be useful, it has to be passed
Stage Model of Memory and Forgetting Jesse M. David St. Petersburg College Abstract The stage model of memory includes three different stages: sensory memory, short term memory, and long term. This model is built off of the idea that information is moved from one stage to another, a process known as encoding. However, this information does not only move from sensory to short term to long term and stay there. It can be brought back to short term from long term. This movement deals with different “cues” that can be a trigger to bring up certain bits of information from long term memory.
Running head: THE MEMORY PROCESS The Memory Process Patanisha Andrews Psych/550 May 2, 2011 Gaston Weisz The Memory Process The basic memory process is encoding information into memory. Memory is the ability to encode, store and recall information. The three main processes of memory involve encoding, storage and recall. The three types of codes are acoustic (sounds), visual (images or pictures) and semantic (meaningful). Memory is stored and retained overtime then the information is retrieved from the memory when needed.
Atkinson and Shiffrin (1968) proposed the multi-store model explaining memory in terms of 3 main stores. Sensory memory, long term memory and short term memory. Sensory memory handles unprocessed information. The information received is either iconic or echoic. Information received will either decay or be passed forward to the short term store.
Tom Galton Introduction to Psychology First Research Summary Felice A. Tager (2001) and her colleagues present a standard experimental study that compares the cognitive abilities of children who have Lyme disease with children who do not. The researchers find that overall, the cognitive abilities of children with Lyme disease are significantly impaired in comparison to healthy children. While this experiment contributes to our understanding of the symptoms and treatment of Lyme disease, as well as the general study of cognition and development, it suffers from several flaws in its research design. First, the researchers searched explicitly for subjects with Lyme disease who complained of cognitive troubles for the experimental group
