Your two short-term memories

  • Short term memory is the place you put things you are going to need in a moment, but certainly do not want to keep it permanently. Once you have done the calculation, it doesn't matter if you forget the carry-over was two.You have finished with that, thrown it away. All the time, everyday, you are popping things briefly into your short term memory, taking them out, dusting them out and throwing them away.
    If you have stopped feeling worried about the two brains and two memories, you might be ready to take on board the fact that you have got two short term memories as well. One is whats called your sensory short term memory. The other is your working short term memory. Lately, psychologists have been trying hard to measure the time span of these two short term memories.

    The time span of your sensory short term memory is actually fairly easy to work out because of the fact you watch movies. The big deal about movies is not who the film star is. The big deal is they move in the first place. When you run through a projector, one still image blends into another and what you see is character walking, but how does this actually happen? What really happens is that you watch a whole series of still images separated by very brief moments of darkness. In order to see those images as a continuous sequence of actions, you have to hold the first image in your (sensory short term) memory until the next one comes along. If you did not do it then you would not see the movement.
