Langston, Advanced Cognitive Psychology, Notes 5 -- Long term memory
We transition to long term memory. In this unit we investigate what we'll call basic memory processes. How does long term memory work? What are some of the areas to which it applies? We'll be looking at two examples (out of many that could be chosen) of how to improve long-term retention. We'll also consider some interesting questions about long term memory.
