Maximizing Short- and Long-Term Memory
Lecture no. 3 from the course: Scientific Secrets for a Powerful Memory
Taught by Professor Peter M. Vishton | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses
In this insightful lecture, Professor Vishton walks you through the three steps of successful memory: a perception to short-term memory, encoding short-term memory to your long-term memory, and retrieving information from your long-term memory. In addition, you’ll explore how amnesia and other hippocampus-related damages can disrupt this normal memory process; you’ll examine some intriguing ways (such as “chunking”) to get around the limitations of your short-term memory; and much more.
