33 information processing The role of memory in information processing Most psychologists regard memory as a process rather than an entity. This process is admirably illustrated by the information-processing model (refer to Figure 7). The brain is viewed as actively altering and organising information rather than merely recording it. There are three stages of remembering information according to the information processing approach: (1) encoding, (2) storage, (3) retrieval. Stages of remembering Encoding Involves the conversion of information into codes.

Internal/intrinsic feedback. This is continuous feedback that is relayed via the proprioceptors. Positive feedback. This often takes the form of praise and reinforces skill learning. Negative feedback. This involves information about incorrect movements. This can ensure that the incorrect movement is not repeated. Effective feedback Often the effectiveness of information processing depends on the quality and nature of feedback.

This processor identifies the type of information entering the brain and then uses an appropriate method to remember it.
