. Iconic (Visual)
. Echoic (auditory)
. Both Iconic and Auditory
. Semantic (meaning)
The long term memory is...
. encoded Semantically, can store unlimited amounts of data, can store infomation for years
. Encoded Iconicly and echoicly, can store 7+ or - 2 items at a time, can store immeasurably large amounts of data
. encoded Semantically, can store immeasurably large amounts of data, can store infomation for years
the relationship between Anxiety/memory follows the Yerke-Dodson law.
. Yerke Dodson law?! It's good to have some but too much is bad
. Yerke Dodson law?! Anxiety is bad because people are too busy being worried to focus
