Multi-Store Model of Memory Atkinson & Shiffrin, 1968 by Mind Map: Multi-Store Model of Memory Atkinson & Shiffrin, 1968

1. Research

1.1. Glanzer & Cunitz

1.1.1. Primary & Recency effect

1.2. Clive Wearing

1.2.1. Unable to remember new information

1.2.1.1. problem with STM

1.2.2. Recognises wife/Can play piano

1.2.2.1. indicating LTM

2. Application

2.1. Chunking increases information available in STM

2.2. Study Skills

2.2.1. Rote Learning

3. Problems

3.1. Reductionist

3.1.1. 'Rehearsal' is too simple for STM>LTM

4. Issues

4.1. Application to society

4.1.1. Rote Learning

4.2. Scientific

4.2.1. Components can be studied individually

4.2.1.1. BUT reductionist

5. Theories

5.1. Many show development

5.1.1. WMM, episodic & semantic

6. Information

6.1. Sensory Memory

6.1.1. Duration limited

6.1.2. Large capacity

6.1.3. From 5 senses

6.1.4. 5 stores

6.1.4.1. Encoding is modality specific

6.1.5. Must attend to information for it to pass into STM

6.2. STM

6.2.1. 30 sec duration

6.2.2. 5-9 capacity

6.2.3. Acoustic encoding

6.2.4. Information maintain through rehearsal

6.2.4.1. Then transfers to LTM

6.3. LTM

6.3.1. Infinite duration

6.3.2. Infinite capacity

6.3.3. Mainly semantic encoding
