|Module 22: Information Processing
|Module 22 provides an introduction to the first of 4 modules on memory,
thinking, and intelligence. Module 22
focuses specifically on information processing. The primary sequence of memory
entails encoding information, storing the information, and then retrieving the
information. Module 22 begins by explaining this three-step process.
|A detailed listing of encoding factors that influence memory is discussed next.
Rehearsal, serial position effects, spacing effect, mnemonics, and other
techniques of encoding are explained.
|Module 22 then describes the storage of information in long- and short-term
memory. Flashbulb memory, explicit and implicit memory, and the
biological aspects of memory are detailed.
|The module concludes discussing the various types of retrieval methods and how
they influence memory.
