III. Memory System Psychologists divide a person’s memory system into three types. Each of them has a different time span ( 持續時間 ).These types are called sensory memory, short- term memory, and long-term memory.
Sensory memory holds information for only one second, sometimes two. For example, when you look at a picture of a mountain, a clear image of the mountain is stored briefly in your visual sensory memory. The image disappears quickly. But if you make an active effort to think about the image, it will become your short-term memory. Sensory memory Short-term memory Long-term memory
Short-term memory contains what you actively think about at any particular time. It can hold a fact for as long as you think about it. You use short-term memory when you look up a telephone number and repeat it to yourself until you dial it. Unless you continually repeat this information to yourself, it will fade after about 20~30 seconds. Sensory memory Short-term memory Long-term memory
Short-term memory will become long-term memory when you encode them in your brain. Long-term memory can store facts, ideas, and experiences after you stop thinking about them. Long-term memory includes a lot of information, some of which lasts a lifetime. Sensory memory Short-term memory Long-term memory
All conscious processing of information such as when you think or when you solve problems involves short-term memory working together with long-term memory. Psychologists refer to this combination as working memory. Sensory memory Short-term memory Long-term memory Back
