In order for the brain to process the information it has to separate the important information from the less important information. It does this by encoding, storing, retrieving, and forgetting the information. ENCODING : ENCODING Step 1: Our senses enter information into our brain. The process of putting feelings, thoughts, and things we hear into our memory. 2 Types of Encoding: Shallow and Elaborative - Shallow- Repeating information to yourself that stores the information in the short-term memory. - Elaborative- Link, associate, or connect information into the long-term memory. LAYOUT OF THE BRAIN : LAYOUT OF THE BRAIN STORAGE : STORAGE Each brain segment is responsible for the function and its own memory storage. STORAGE CONT’D : STORAGE CONT’D The Cerebellum stores the information for us. RETRIEVAL : RETRIEVAL 2Ways to Retrieve Information From the Brain: - Associative Retrieval- Occurs when things like taste, touch, and smell trigger memories. - Engaging consciously into memorizing cues and hints in order to generate the retrieval process. RETRIEVAL CONT’D : RETRIEVAL CONT’D Memory stored in 4 categories: 1. Recall- Does not require any clues or prompts. 2. Recollection- Using stories, clues, and partial memory in order to reconstruct the memory. 3. Recognition- Re-experiencing of information. 4. Relearning- The reintroduction and rehearsing of material already learned. FORGETTING : FORGETTING The brain has a controlled way of forgetting the less important information. In order for a person to Prioritize task the brain also has to forget things. If unuseful information is assigned the same priority as the important things it will take up much needed space.
