Example text

Experience causes physical changes in our brain. In a few seconds new circuits are formed that can forever change the way we think about something or remember information. THE POWER OF A SCHEMA If I ask you to describe what a “head” is, you might talk about the brain, hair, eyes, nose, ears, skin, neck, and other parts. ” You would think about all the things that make up an eye: the eyeball, iris, eyelash, eyelid, and so on. The head is a schema. The eye is a schema. People use schemata (plural for schema) to store information in long-term memory and to retrieve it.

The research now shows that the “magical” number is four. USING CHUNKS TO TURN FOUR INTO MORE People can hold three or four things in working memory as long as they aren’t distracted and their processing of the information is not interfered with. One of the interesting strategies people employ to help our fragile memories is “chunking” information together into groups. S. phone numbers look like this: 712-569-4532 Instead of having to remember 10 separate numerals, a phone number has three chunks, with four or less items in each chunk.

There’s no research showing that the shapes of words help us read more accurately or more quickly. A psycholinguist named James Cattell came up with that idea in 1886. There was some evidence for it then, but more recent work by Kenneth Paap (1984) and Keith Rayner (1998) has revealed that what we’re actually doing when we read is recognizing and anticipating letters. And then, based on the letters, we recognize the word. Let’s look more closely at how we read. READING ISN’T AS FLUID AS IT SEEMS When we read, we have the impression that our eyes are moving smoothly across the page, but that’s not what’s actually happening.
