Memory (Key Concepts)
By the end of the lesson you will be able to:
- Describe the different stages of information processing
- Describe the different types of forgetting
- Explain what retrograde amnesia is and how the hippocampus is involved
- Explain what retrograde amnesia is and how the frontal lob is involved
- Explain what procedural memory is and its relationship with amnesia
For this lesson you will need:
- Your exercise book
- Your exam question booklet
- Your textbook (pages 121-124)
Which stage involves data entering into the memory?
Which stage involves searching for and accessing the data
During the output stage we do what with the data
Types of forgetting
When information fades over time it is called
When older information is pushed out by new information it is called
