    Describe the types of information we encode automatically

    Information that is automatically encoded includes that regarding space, time and frequency.

    Solution Summary

    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.
