Short Term Memory
Long Term Memory
Sensory Memory:refers to the initial recording of sensory information in the memory system. All information is held here briefly(1/2 to 4 seconds)
Sensory Memories include both:
Sensory memory is very hard to measure since it fades as we try to measure it.
Context Effects Memory Retrieval: able to retrieve information better when you are in the same context you learned it in.
Emotional/Mood Impact of Memory:
Absent Mindedness – inattention to details produces encoding failure
Transience- unused info. fades
Blocking- unable to access stored info….tip of your tongue
Misattribution- confusing the source of the info.
5. Suggestibility- the lingering effects of misinformation
6.Bias-belief- colored recollections
7. Persistence-unwanted memories won’t go away
