Memory is the process of encoding, storing and retrieving and also includes the ability later recall information and experiences gained in the past within the brain. It can be also described as the process of maintaining information overtime. It is also said that “our lives are the sum of our memories”, which gives out an idea of how important memory is to a human brain. Everything we use in our day today lives depends on memories which are the past experiences we went through and it is the ability to remember our past. Memory is a significant component when it comes to learning.
This essay will be evaluating two research studies (Craik and Lockhart 1972, Atkinson and Shiffrin 1968) and the ideas they put forth in relation to the cognitive process of Memory. Memory is defined as the mental process that stores, processes and retrieves information specifically required for certain situations. The two Models offer different perspectives on how Memory works. Memory is commonly known to have 3 major stages as the following: • Encoding- This is what allows a perceived object to be converted into a construct that can be stored in the brain. This is a passive and sometimes active process.
The most important component is called the central executive. It is involved with both problem solving and decision-making. Its also in control of attention and has a very important role in planning and synthesizing information, not only from the subsidiary systems but also from Long Term Memory. It is able to process information from any modality but has a limited storage capacity and can attend to a limited number of things at once. Another important component of the working memory model is the phonological
How reliable are the two models or theories of the cognitive process of memory, “|…|the process of maintaining information over time” (Matlin, 2005) , known as the multistore model (MSM) and the levels of processing model (LOP)? Both of these models have been widely criticized, but simultaneously they have improved our knowledge and understanding of how the process of memory works. In this essay both of these models of memory will be evaluated by presenting the strengths and limitations of each. The first model, the multistore model, was put forward by Atkinson and Shiffrin (1968) which suggests that the concept of memory involves three stores; the sensory stores, the short-term store (STS), and the long-term store (LTS). The sensory stores
MB DAMANE 23242868 LPRA 322 ASSIGNMENT GILE’S EFFORT MODEL Introduction In my essay I am going to critically discuss Gile’s Effort Model. History Daniel Gille who is a theorist, proposed the effort model where he talks abot the difficulties and efforts that are involved in interpreting tasks and the strategies needed to defeat them. The reason behind him proposing this effort model was to help interpreters understand the difficulties of interpreting and to choose helpful strategies and tactics. “They are based on the concept of processing capacity and upon the fact that some mental operations in interpreting require much processing capacity”. (Gille 1992:191) The effort model proposed by Gile is in place to help interpreters
The Working Memory Model :- Alan Baddeley and Graham Hitch proposed a model of working memory in 1974, in essence it was a reformulation of the traditional idea of short-term memory. In Baddeley's scheme, working memory is the short-term memory, where, instead of all information going into one single store, there are different systems in this memory for different types of information. Working memory is composed of three separate units – Executive control system, it is the primary unit, it acts as a supervisory system and controls the flow of information from and to its slave systems, allocating processing resources and coordinating their activity. Phonological loop or the Articulatory loop, is the second major component in Baddeley's model. It is the place where speech and sound-related information are rehearsed and actively maintained for immediate recall.
Abstract Given the huge accumulation of research and the information gained about the various memory processes, researchers have now turned towards investigating how individuals monitor and control these processes and what beliefs and knowledge do people have regarding their own memory. This is what metamemory entails. The influence of judgements about one’s own memory on actual memory performance across different ages and clinical groups, is another arena that is being investigated in metamemory research. The present report is an attempt to briefly outline the basic concepts underlying metamemory; how the concept of metamemory came into existence; the early models explaining the various metamemory processes. The different research approaches
"Memory is a special faculty of the mind to conserve or retain what has been previously experienced or acquired through learning and, then, at some later stage, to revive or reproduce it in the form of recall or recognition to enable us to utilize such learning in different situations of daily life. How we remember can be explained through the models of memory. The levels of processing model suggested by Craik and Lokhart emphasizes that the ability to remember depends on the levels at which we process the information. The deeper the processing of the information, the longer it can be remembered. The other model, Atkinson and Shiffrins’s storage and transfer model, put forward the concept of three separate kinds of storage for the three types
They concluded that even thought the transferring of information from the short-term to the long-term store it may was not always easy, the application of three distinct acquisition strategies could actually substantially aid the transferability and thus the process of learning (Reed, 2012). More specifically, thse control processes/strategies are the following; coding (relate the information with existing knowledge), rehearsal (repeating the information) and imaging (to visually imagine verbal information) (Radomski & Latham,
Reflective One important factor in the understanding of how learning occurs is reflective practice. The use of reflective is to think carefully about something, by thinking carefully the understanding of individual increases. According to Oxford English Dictionary, 1992, reflective is the action of turning back or fixing the thoughts of some subject, meditation, deep or serious consideration the mode, operation or faculty by which the mind has knowledge on itself and its operations, or by which it deals received from sensation and perception. Reflection-in-Action The Reflective Practitioner of Schon (1983), reflection can be seen in two time frames. Reflection can occur during the action.
