‘Outline and Evaluate the Multi-Store Model of Memory’ The multi-store model (MSM) is an information processing system, which holds features such as sensory memory, short-term memory and long term memory. This model of memory had been proposed by Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968 and they envisaged memory as a flow of information through an information-processing system. The MSM is divided into a series of stages as the information asses from one story to another in a fixed sequence. At each stage there are three constraints in terms of capacity, duration and encoding. Atkinson and Shiffrin said that the information enters from the environment and it registers at the sensory memory before either decaying of passing on to short-term memory.
Which of the following is true about the process of read data, as described in the chapter? D. The CPU must first find the file in the file system before reading the data. 6. A user has opened a word processor, type the numbers 123456789, and stored the document as a file called report 1. Which of the following determines, in part, what bits the computer stores in the file to represent the text typed into the report?
b. Megabyte 3. Which answer lists the correct number of bits associated with each term? c. 64 bits per quadruple word 4. Which of the following answers are true about random-access memory (RAM) as it is normally used inside a personal computer? (Choose two answers.)
Short term memory (STM) is considered as incoming information from the sense which we attend to for only a short period of time. Only when we attend to the incoming sensory information and rehearse it does that information transfer from short term memory to long term memory. Short term memory is thought to be limited to 18-30 seconds, information that is not processed into long term memory is then lost through decay or displacement. The three main areas to memory are encoding, which is the way information is changed so it can be stored in memory. The information enters the brain via the senses including eyes and ears, it is then stored in various forms such as visual codes (pictures), acoustic form (sound based) or semantic form (how we attach meaning or experiences) Encoding
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.

Outline and evaluate the multi-store model of memory (12 marks) Atkinson and Shiffrin (1968) developed the multi-store model of memory to describe how the whole memory is structured. Incoming information enters a sensory memory for a brief period of time. A tiny fraction of it is then transmitted to the short term memory where it can be held and influenced. A little of that information is then transferred to the long term memory for more permanent storage. Sensory memory is the memory stores of all the info that your senses take in, it is held long enough for us to pay attention to it, if wanted, and then initially process it before it transfers to the short term memory.
