(wikipedia.org)
  • retention
  • This type of memory has the shortest retention time, only milliseconds to five seconds. (wikibooks.org)
  • Underwood revisited the classic Ebbinghaus learning curve and found that much of the forgetting was due to interference from previously learned materials In 1924, James J. Jenkins and Karl Dallenbach showed that everyday experiences can interfere with memory with an experiment that resulted in retention being better over a period of sleep than over the same amount of time devoted to activity. (wikipedia.org)
  • hippocampus
  • After studying London taxicab drivers over a period of time, it was found that the grey matter volume increased over time in the posterior hippocampus, an area in the brain involved heavily in memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • Chronic, long-term high cortisol levels affect the degree of hippocampal atrophy, resulting in as much as a 14% hippocampal volume reduction and impaired hippocampus-dependent memory when compared to elderly subjects with decreased or moderate cortisol levels. (wikipedia.org)
  • Because the hippocampus is pivotal in memory encoding and modulating memory consolidation, any impairment can drastically affect an autistic individual's ability to process (i.e. multi-modal) and retain information. (wikipedia.org)
  • After the formation of the dentate gyrus of the hippocampus, the density of synapses in the prefrontal cortex, which is involved in eyewitness memory, is peaks in its development during 15 to 24 months, changing until the age of adolescence. (wikipedia.org)
  • The hippocampus is one of the brain structures located within the medial temporal lobe and is considered one of the main structures of the brain associated with eyewitness testimony because it is the area that is important for the formation of long term memories. (wikipedia.org)
  • Though the hippocampus may stop maturing at a certain age, behavioural evidence shows that declarative memories are known to develop from childhood up until adulthood. (wikipedia.org)
  • Explicit memory depends heavily on structures in the medial temporal lobe, including the hippocampus and the parahippocampal cortex. (wikipedia.org)

  • 2001
  • Supporting the management of attention the objective is to bring a certain number of solutions to: people perception cognitive limitations, such as the limited capacity of the human short-term memory (an average number of 4 items (Cowan 2001) can be managed at a given time), or the theoretical cognitive limit to the number of people with whom one can maintain stable social relationships (the Dunbar's number of 150). (wikipedia.org)
  • The most commonly cited capacity is The Magical Number Seven, Plus or Minus Two (which is frequently referred to as Miller's Law), despite the fact that Miller himself stated that the figure was intended as "little more than a joke" (Miller, 1989, page 401) and that Cowan (2001) provided evidence that a more realistic figure is 4±1 units.

  • rehearsal
  • The duration of short-term memory (when rehearsal or active maintenance is prevented) is believed to be in the order of seconds. (wikipedia.org)
  • Murdock, 1962) Murray Glanzer and Anita Cunitz (1966) tested the idea that rehearsal of the early words might lead to better memory by presenting the list at a slower pace, so there was more time between each word and participants had more time to rehearse. (wikibooks.org)
  • Just as hypothesized, if the primacy effect is due to rehearsal, increasing the time between each word increased memory for the early words (Glanzer et al. (wikibooks.org)
  • This is evident first by watching children for overt sign of rehearsal (for example lip movement) and second if the child is given nameable pictures, there are no differences in retrieval found for long versus short words. (wikipedia.org)

  • To the confusion of Americans at a later date, Müller used "associative Hemmung" (inhibition) as a blanket term for retroactive and proactive inhibition. (wikipedia.org)
  • Following its first publication, multiple extensions of the model have been put forth such as a precategorical acoustic store, the search of associative memory model, the perturbation model, and permastore. (wikipedia.org)
  • However, some evidence suggests that there may be minimal impairment in high-functioning autistic (HFA) individuals in that they have intact associative learning ability, verbal working memory, and recognition memory. (wikipedia.org)

  • In his article, Miller discussed a coincidence between the limits of one-dimensional absolute judgment and the limits of short-term memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • Miller recognized that the correspondence between the limits of one-dimensional absolute judgment and of short-term memory span was only a coincidence, because only the first limit, not the second, can be characterized in information-theoretic terms (i.e., as a roughly constant number of bits). (wikipedia.org)
  • Nevertheless, the idea of a "magical number 7" inspired much theorizing, rigorous and less rigorous, about the capacity limits of human cognition. (wikipedia.org)

  • For example, whilst in a lesson, we may not be paying attention to one of our senses, e.g. touch and how our arms feel on the table, but we will be concentrating and paying attention to another one of our senses, sound, and what the teacher is saying to us, so this gets transferred into our short term memory store.
