  • According to Miller , whose paper in 1956 popularized the theory of the "magic number seven" , short-term memory is limited to a certain number of chunks of information, while long-term memory has a limitless store. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to the dual store memory model proposed by Richard C. Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin in 1968, memories can reside in the short-term "buffer" for a limited time while they are simultaneously strengthening their associations in long-term memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • When items are first presented, they enter short-term memory, but due to its limited space, as new items enter, older ones are pushed out. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, each time an item in short-term memory is rehearsed, it is strengthened in long-term memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • Similarly, the longer an item stays in short-term memory, the stronger its association becomes in long-term memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to this theory, short-term memory is divided into different slave systems for different types of input items, and there is an executive control supervising what items enter and exit those systems. (wikipedia.org)

  • Long-term memory ( LTM ) is the stage of the Atkinson-Shiffrin memory model where informative knowledge is held indefinitely. (wikipedia.org)
  • Long-term memory is commonly labelled as explicit memory ( declarative ), as well as episodic memory , semantic memory , autobiographical memory , and implicit memory ( procedural memory ). (wikipedia.org)
  • Long-term memory encodes information semantically for storage, as researched by Baddeley . (wikipedia.org)
  • In vision, the information needs to enter working memory before it can be stored into long-term memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • This is evidenced by the fact that the speed with which information is stored into long-term memory is determined by the amount of information that can be fit, at each step, into visual working memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • As long-term memory is subject to fading in the natural forgetting process, maintenance rehearsal (several recalls/retrievals of memory) may be needed to preserve long term memories. (wikipedia.org)
  • Using testing methods as a form of recall can lead to the testing effect , which aids long term memory through information retrieval and feedback. (wikipedia.org)
  • Some theories consider sleep to be an important factor in establishing well-organized long-term memories. (wikipedia.org)
  • According to Tarnow's theory, long-term memories are stored in dream format (reminiscent of the Penfield & Rasmussen's findings that electrical excitations of the cortex give rise to experiences similar to dreams). (wikipedia.org)
  • During waking life an executive function interprets long-term memory consistent with reality checking ( Tarnow 2003 ). (wikipedia.org)
  • Newly acquired declarative memory traces are believed to be reactivated during NonREM sleep to promote their hippocampo-neocortical transfer for long-term storage. (wikipedia.org)
