Describe the types of information we encode automatically. Contrast effortful processing with automatic processing, giving an example of each. Additionally, explain how an understanding of memory can contribute to effective study techniques.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com March 4, 2021, 10:46 pm ad1c9bdddf
Describe the types of information we encode automatically
Information that is automatically encoded includes that regarding space, time and frequency. More specially, we can remember information about where things are (i.e., in our house, in a book etc.), what time things occurred (i.e., the sequence of events in our day) and frequency (i.e., how many times different things have happened to you within a timer ...
This solution explains the difference between automatically encoded memories and those that we encode effortfully. Further discussion on how we can use our knowledge of memory to create effective study techniques is also noted.
