There are however, different types of memory which can affect what type of information is encoded, how long it is stored for and when that information can be retrieved. /Resources 38 0 R 5 0 obj /X10 17 0 R A good example that demonstrates a false memory is position of items in a list. /BM /Normal /ExtGState << /Parent 2 0 R The procedure typically involves the oral presentation of a list of related words (e.g., bed, rest, awake, tired, dream, wake, snooze, blanket, doze, slumber, snore, nap, peace, yawn, drowsy) and then requires the subject to remember as many words from the list as possible. << Similarly, there should be no reports whatsoever of the normal or special distractors. Sensory memory for example, which can include both echoic (auditory) and iconic (visual) memory, can be retrieved milliseconds (iconic) or seconds (echoic) after exposure to a stimulus. Then, the response buttons were labelled with words from the list as well as with distractor words that were not on the list. �[2{��o �O}�����m�glۣ�M�% 8�X�����^h?\mm ��&*���Dj��o]fGJy}�֥����W.�� /ML 4 Julian D.
