  • What does the harder Human Information Processing model look like?

    Elements:
    • Sensory register
    • Perception
    • Thought decision making
    • Working Memory
    • Long term memory
    • Attention resoources
    • Response selection
    • Response execution        
  • What are examples of low level phenomena of perception?

    Low level perception: "the neural-based computations building unconscious or self-generated inferences during the processing of sensory events"
    • Hering grid: lateral inhibition in retina
    • Motion-after-effect: adaption to motion
    • Color-after-effect: adaption to colors
  • What is the bottom-up effec based on? And name two examples.

    On saliency (brightness, contrast)
    For example:
    • White flower in green field
    • Alarm
  • What are top-down examples?

    When the information quality is low, top-down influences will be high
    12, I3, 14 vs A I3 C
    Fase-Face
    Obama
  • What is Broadbent's Attentional Filter?

    Sensory register -> perception of HMP
    Early selection on attended channel and physical properties (pitch, color, loudness)

    • Overt
    • Covert
    • Endogenous (top-down): color-changing card trick, intentional, controlled, conscious, limited
    • Exogenous (bottom-up): traffic signs
      • Visual search
        • Pop-out/Conjunction
    • Attentional Control vs Automatic
  • What is the Working Memory?

    • Short term memory
      • Small capactity (7 +- 2, Miller's Law)
      • Short duration (max. 20 seconds) 
      • Primacy and recency effect
  • What influences the way from working memory to long term memory?

    Chunking (PASAAICIBF vs FBI CIA ASAP)
    Interference (stroop)
