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

1. Application

1.1. Chunking increases information available in STM

1.2. Study Skills

1.2.1. Rote Learning

2. Problems

2.1. Reductionist

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

3. Issues

3.1. Application to society

3.1.1. Rote Learning

3.2. Scientific

3.2.1. Components can be studied individually

3.2.1.1. BUT reductionist

4. Theories

4.1. Many show development

4.1.1. WMM, episodic & semantic

5. Research

5.1. Glanzer & Cunitz

5.1.1. Primary & Recency effect

5.2. Clive Wearing

5.2.1. Unable to remember new information

5.2.1.1. problem with STM

5.2.2. Recognises wife/Can play piano

5.2.2.1. indicating LTM

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
