  6. 6. The Concept of Information Processing Theory Section 1
  7. 7. The Concept of Information Processing Theory • The idea of Information Processing lies within Cognitive Psychology and as a theory combines multiple theoretical perspectives that mainly seek to explain human learning as the development of networked memory structures. • Throughout much of the 1950s psychologists involved in the Information Processing movement began to view the brain as a neural computer that processes information with extraordinary efficiency and excellent performance in problem solving and critical thinking.
  8. 8. The 3 Main Functions of Information Processing Theory Section 2
  9. 9. The 3 Main Functions of Information Processing Theory 1. Sensory memory Helps people screen incoming information. 2. Working memory Helps people manage and store larger chunks of information, and perform visual-spatial mental operations. 3. Long-term memory Serves as a permanent repository of information that can be accessed at a later time, enabling humans to continually build upon their knowledge base.
  10. 10. The 3 Principles of Information Processing Theory Section 3
  11. 11. The 3 Principles of Information Processing Theory 1. The information provided by our environment is constantly processed by a complex series of systems. 2. The processing systems modify the information we gather in “systematic” ways. 3. The primary goal of research tasks that delve into information processing is to determine which processes and brain structures are behind cognitive performance.
