Loci technique enhancing the memorystrategy for the long term
Abstract:The loci method is used to enhance the memory capacity as well as to retrieve thoseinformation which is being stored in the memory. It is also described as the memory journeyor the mind palace technique. It is also noted that the when the memory it is important toreview the structural mechanism. This process is succeeded in the serial recalling processwhich involves in memory. The levels of processing is the most integral part regarding thesubject. The implicit memory and the levels of the processing is found only in the explicitmemory tests. Memory could be either the short term or the long term based on the capacity.In this research paper the two end results are being compared such as before memorizing andthe next step is the process involved in the recalling. When the experiment is being conductedthe memory method loci is said to be an effective one among all the strategies. The Craig andLockhart, 1972 also summaries the various approaches in to process the experiment whichalways requires the attention, rehearsal and the encoding and finally the retrievalrepresentation of the system.IntroductionIt is stated that the survival processing is also an effective type of the processingwhich is related to the memory. Among various techniques which is being involved in loci,the oldest and the most famous technique is the mnemo-technique. From these methods it’sclear that the method of loci works well. The advantage of this method is most reflected onlywhen the material or the text is being placed orally or in the written format.In this method it involves in the encoding hypothesis where it’s been connected to thereal world objects. Within minutes the memory palace could be built by using this technique.The technique such as the technique which is used to hold the free speeches and its beingconnected by the key points. This type of the method of loci is always being associated withthe memory championships. The mnemonics device is designed to be a trick to remember thethings so easily. This technique is being invented by the Greek poet. Various personalitiesused this type of the technique for memorizing of the informationThe Literature review has been conducted on this topic such as Craik & Tulving hasset in order to test the various levels of processing. By this processing it is possible to thinkabout the person and various experiments were also conducted. Here the deeper levels ofprocessing also results in better memories. This type of processing is much vague and thiscould not be observed. The author has explained how Craik and Lockhart also argued
regarding the deep processing which has deeper coding and the better retention since it’smore elaborate. The research has also indicated that this processing is more complex and it’sbeing varied than the other levels of the processing.The information processing theory uses the computer model which is used to describethe type of the human learning. Here in this theory the information is being collected,processed and then it’s being stored and finally retrieved. It is also based on the idea of howhumans are processing the information they receive. The computer also process theinformation which also includes the internal states which even affects the processing. In theparallel distributed processing, the author has explained about the mind which also consists ofthe various units which is being connected by the neural network. The various mentalprocesses consists of the interactions between these units and also helps in the parallel whencompared to the sequential operation. This parallel distributed processing which is alsoknown as PDP. This was also the artificial network where the parallel natures of the neuralprocessing is being stressed.The theory of levels of processing model also called as the Craik andLockhart, 1972 involves in the process which is being involved in the memory. In thistechnique, it is used to predict the information which is deeper and those information couldeven last forever and could even be traced. Craik has even defined the levels of processingsuch as its something meaningful which is being extracted from the stimulus depending uponthe number of the analyses which is being performed on it. There is a basic idea which isbehind this levels of processing. It is similar to the multi-store model also called as the non-structured approach. The idea behind this is that, the memory is result of processing theinformation. The information is being processed in three different ways such as the structuralprocessing, phonemic processing and the semantic processing. The structural processing isused when the appearance of something is being encoded. The phonemic processing is thatwhich are being encoded called as sound. It is also said to a type of the rehearsal which takesplace in the multi-store model. The deep processing involves the semantic processing. Thisprocessing occurs when the encoding is related to the similar word. It is also said that theEysenck has claimed regarding the levels of processing theory which also describes the Craikand Lockhart has also argued which is related to the deep processing which is leading to thelong term memory. It has also failed to provide the deep processing which is being soeffective. The studies has also link the meaning in the already existing network.
There are different explanations when the memory of loci is being taken in to account. Thedata also supports the processing which is being done in the memory research technique. Thetechnique is also said to be the oldest technique to process the memory technique deeply. Inthe memory of loci is used to encode the information. This technique is used in three phasessuch as the first phase is used to select the memories the series of the words and the variouslocations. In the second phase, the subjected is being created for each of the item and thoseare being remembered in the loci logic. And in the third phase the retrieval is done by usingthe loci pathway and those series of the words and the various locations are beingremembered. There are lots of advantages which are being involved in the method of loci.The things which needs to be remembered needs to be shown in front either it needs to be inwritten format. This method however involves in the encoding options. It also reduces theretrieval competition. It is also necessary to encourage the participants in order to think inbetter way. In order to analyse the effects, the replication on the results is also done. This isalso tried with the various material and the series of the words. The survival processing isalso effective method is called as the memory of loci. This method also has the beneficiary onthe memory such that it involves in the survival processing method. It is also an advantagesince it facilitates the concept and it’s even helpful in recalling. A second experiment is beingdone in order to influence the processing called as the survival processing. In the memory ofloci the encoding richness helps in the hypothesis even to stimulate the thoughts and also itshelps in the survival process. In the experimental condition, the imagery instructions. Herethe participants are given the list of the words to memorise and they need to recall all thosewords. Certain discussions were done, based on the few experiments which also requires theencoding options. This method is also used to remember the list of items, speeches, names ofthe people etc. This technique works well the concept of memorizing is completely different.In few cases the locations are being organized in a hierarchical order that the memoryconcept works very easily.This method is also a different type of the banking method with the use of the twist.This method is being developed by the Simonides of Ceos. He was the one who recognized adeath, where the guest was sitting and how the murdered has occurred. The memory tool wasused by the Greek in order to give speeches without the use of the aids. The process involvedin the linking of the loci methods which also helps in remembering the items which are on thelist. Here in this way the problem arises is that could be done by the help of the linkingmethod. An experiment was conducted in order to show the brain activities of the memory.
