About this Lecture

Lecture

This module explores the different types of long-term memory, including episodic, semantic and procedural memory. In particular, we focus on episodic memory and consider different methods for investigating it, such as free recall, cued recall and recognition tasks. Finally, we take a closer look at two types of recognition processes, recollection and familiarity, and discuss the difference between them.

Course

In this course, Dr Davide Bruno (Liverpool John Moores University) explores the cognitive psychology of memory and forgetting. Modules one and two begin by introducing the two main ways in which memory has been conceptualised by cognitive psychologists: the multi-store memory model, developed by Atkinson and Shiffrin in 1968, and the working memory model, developed by Baddeley and Hitch in 1974. We then move on in module three to looking at different types of long-term memory, including episodic, semantic and procedural memory. In module four, we think about the cognitive processes involved in forgetting, focusing in particular on retrieval failure and interference. The fifth module concludes the course with an overview of amnesia, a clinical condition associated with significant memory loss.
