  • It's a model of memory proposed in 1968 by Richard Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin.

  • It asserts that human memory has three separate components.

    1. A sensory register, where sensory information enters memory.
    2. A short-term memory, which receives and holds information from the sensory register and the long-term memory.
    3. A long-term memory, where information which has been rehearsed in the short-term memory is held indefinitely.
