Memory in Psychological Terms - can you help?Watch
I instructed participants to read from a book (Oliver Twist) during the five-minute interference task. What, in psychological models of memory, does this do? Yes, it prevents rehearsal - is this because is ties up the articulary loop (Baddely and Hitch)?
Or is this not correct because this is only for spoken words, and so another theory will be valid instead?
Any help would be appreciated.
Anyway, that's the only significance of rehearsal that I truly understand, and it's inappropriate in your experiment because preventing transition to LTM should result in insignificant recall after 5 minutes due to the short STM duration. Therefore, I'm probably underqualified to answer your question.... Sorry.
