    Hi guys, I just finished the approaches topic and found the layout and evaluation and outline pretty simple to do.
    However I've just got on to memory topic and now writing my essays for the msm I don't understand how I'm meant to layout this essay is it the same as the approaches?
    Also how many evaluation points are need , I was advised 4-5 for my approaches topics. Also when doing the essay am I meant to evaluate each store separately (sm,stm and ltm) or the multi store model as a whole. As I was given evaluation points for each store and the multi store model as a whole and have like 15, 16 evaluation point lool. I'm so confused can someone help me ,and show me how to do this, thank you and if you can show me a sample essay , but it's not needed .
    Thank you😀😀😀

    the layout should be to talk about the MSM as a whole like talk abt whoinvented it atkinson shiffrin 1968 n dat, then you just talk abt the process, like environmental stimulus to registery to stm and that. BUT DO THIS BRIEFLY DONT GO INTO DETAIL, more marks are awarded for evaluation!!

    then do the evaluation and only do 4 POINTS MAX but do them in detail as most marks lie here ygm? yh ur meant to talk abt msm as a whole no evaluation for each msm, ltm n dat seperately !!

    ill try n link in a example hold on

    Hi

    For a 16 marker you will need 6 key words for A01 and 4 A03 PEEL

    For A01 break it down:

    Sensory register - talk about the senses, capacity of register and duration
    Attention - transferred to STM
    Short term memory (STM) - immediate tasks, fragile state - limited duration, maintenance rehearsal - create LTM
    Long term memory (LTM) - unlimited capacity and duration

    A03

    I'll give you one example

    P - A strength of MSM is subsequent research support and evidence... Expand
    E - For example Beardsley found that the prefrontal cortex is active during STM but not LTM tasks
    E - As a result this confirms the existence of STM and expand
    L - thus increases validity and explain

    The multi-store model of memory is a representation of how memory works in terms of 3 stores; the sensory register, STM and LTM. it also describes how information is transferred from one store to another (processes), how it is remembered, and how it is forgotten. Atkinson and Shiffrin (1968) used an information processing approach, where memory is characterised as a flow of information through a system (using a flowchart)

    (draw flowchart)

    The strengths of the approach is that there's strong evidence to support the idea of separate stores in memory. The MSM also provides an account of memory in terms of both structure and process.Lastly, the MSM has clear predictions about memory which means psychologists can conduct studies to test it and find out more about human behaviour.

    The limitations of the approach is that it is criticised for focusing too much on structure and too little on the process involved. Also, the STM and LTM are not unitary stores, research has identified 4 types of LTM. Furthermore, it oversimplifies memory structures and processes. Lastly, the model is also oversimplistic as it is a basic explanation of memory.

    Hi ya when u ta,k about the memory stores shall I add the studies regarding the specific memory stores in A01? Thanks
