similarities and differences between short-term and long-term memory



Here is a video I made a few years ago for a 4000-level psychology course at the University of Memphis, Mind, Brain, and Intelligence. describing an article about short-term and long-term memory by Burgess and Hitch.



The video outlines the similarities and differences between short-term (working memory) and long-term memory, and also proposes a model for linking the two types of memory to each other. As a lagniappe, the article (and hence the video) also provides a bit of information that could be useful for improving one's own memories.
