Notes

  • Short-term memory can keep information for somewhere on the order of 10 seconds up to 30 seconds, when the information is not being actively rehearsed.

  • It has a limited capacity: we can remember 7±27 \pm 2 things before them vanish.

  • If you want to remember a information beyond a few seconds, it may get stored in your long-term memory.

  • It mostly encode memory acoustically, but also retain visuospatial images.
