Topic: The Processes of Short-and Long-term Memory.
“In 1968 Dick Atkinson and I published a now famous model outlining the processes residing in short-term memory that control the storage in and the retrieval from various limited capacity short-term memories and relatively permanent long-term memory. The years since have seen numerous developments and advances yet the basic structure presented in that chapter remains an excellent account today. Nonetheless, the science of memory has advanced over the years, and I take the opportunity of this lecture to reprise what we now know about the storage in and retrieval from short-term memories and long-term memory. The lecture will include the way event memory and knowledge evolve together, as laid out in a Psychological Review article by Angela Nelson and me in 2013.”
