Hi, Can anyone help me with memory!? Been looking through some past papers and have a feeling a question similar to this could come up - "Discuss encoding, duration and capacity in STM and LTM". This is the only thing I cannot get to grips with. Could anyone give me help with a way of answering this question?

Thanks!

Describe each one by one so you'd say:

Short term memory (STM) has a capacity of 7+-2 items (Miller, 1956) and long term memory (LTM) has a potentially unlimited capacity. STM encodes acoustically (sounds) whereas LTM encodes semantically(meaning). Finally, STM has a duration of 18-30 seconds whereas LTM is said to have a potentially unlimited duration.

Sorry if this is a little different to what you've learned in school I assume you're doing GCSE psychology, I did AS.
