Coding Processes in Human Memory.
Melton, Arthur W., Ed.; Martin, Edwin, Ed.
This collection of papers represents the proceedings of a research workshop on coding processes in human memory held in Massachusetts in August, 1971. The emphasis is on the contemporary issue of coding and particularly on the encoding processes at the time information is stored in memory. This volume is intended for use by research workers and teachers of human memory, learning, and perception, and should also be useful for those interested in applying the latest in basic learning theory to the study of individual differences, educational psychology, and developmental psychology. The 19 papers are categorized into 15 chapters covering such topics as recall versus recognition, conscious constructions, stimulus selection, stimulus encoding, simple recognition memory, multiple encoding, directed forgetting, theories of space perception, language codes, and semantics and lexical memory. Included is a list of contributors as well as an author index of all cited authors and a subject index. (Author/JF)
