Aspects Of Memory
5 pages in length. Recall and recognition - the foundations of human memory - are wholly dependent upon the actions of encoding and storage as to how readily they are brought forth in recollection. To understand the variables associated with short- and long-term memory components is to realize why some memories are recalled with prompts (i.e. audio, visual or olfactory) while others are difficult to call back no matter how many cues are given to encourage recollection. Bibliography lists 5 sources.
4 pages in length. The transitional process between stimuli to long-term memory involves three distinct components: encoding, storage and retrieval. At the moment sensory perception occurs (encoding), the memory sets to work keeping that information in its bank (storage) for later use (retrieval). The relative simplicity of this undertaking fails to emphasize the conscious aspects that must be happening simultaneously in order for this sensory information to leave the short-term memory and become embedded in the long-term. Four elements of control determine if and how much stimuli make that transfer: attention, rehearsal, encoding and retrieval. Bibliography lists 2 sources.
Positivism, Behaviorism and Gestalt Psychology
This 3 page paper provides an overview of two sections of questions on psychology. Part 1. What is logical positivism? How is legitimate science consistent with logical positivism?

How has the Gestalt view of mental organization in perception and thinking relate to the cognitive psychology paradigm? What is the difference between short-term and long-term memory? What did Donald Broadbent mean when he referenced attention filters, as related to encoding into short-term memory? Bibliography lists 3 sources.
