Discussion 1: Long-Term Memory
The three-store memory theoryan earlier theory of memorysuggested that memory moved from sensory experience to a temporary store in the brain. Once there, if attended to, it would be transferred to a short-term memory store. If entered into a process called rehearsal, this short-term memory would enter long-term storage.The levels-of-processing theory of memory came into being in part as an answer to the three-story theory. Rather than focusing on the notions of storage and rehearsal, this theory emphasized the role of process in the development of long-term memory. Theorists suggested that memories are formed inherently through the cognitive processes used to absorb information.In this Discussion, you describe and analyze an occasion of long-term memory loss that you experienced. You then explain how to improve long-term memory function.With these thoughts in mind:Post a brief description of an example of long-term memory loss that you have experienced. Then explain your long-term memory loss within the context of the three-store memory theory and levels of processing memory theory. Finally, explain strategies you might use to improve your long-term memory function.Be sure to support your postings and responses with specific references to the Learning Resources.
