  • Eyewitnesses use declarative memories, specifically episodic memory when they are asked to recall specific events that took place in the past. (wikipedia.org)
  • A study looking at age differences in which children can remember episodic memories (e.g. their first day of school, attending a friend's birthday party), elementary and preschool students were questioned about delay interval in past experiences and found significant differences in what children recall. (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

  • 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)

  • 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.

  • Interference theory is a theory regarding human memory. (wikipedia.org)
  • The model asserts that human memory has three separate components: a sensory register, where sensory information enters memory, a short-term store, also called working memory or short-term memory, which receives and holds input from both the sensory register and the long-term store, and a long-term store, where information which has been rehearsed (explained below) in the short-term store is held indefinitely.
