They identified three levels of functioning: • Fully automatic processing, controlled by schemas (organised plans). • Partially automatic processing, involving contention scheduling without deliberate direction or conscious control; contention scheduling is used to resolve conflicts among schemas. • Deliberate control by a supervisory attentional system; Baddeley (1986) argued that this system resembled the central executive of the working memory system (see Chapter 6).

The pathway to the specialty exam equivalency is similar to that for the traditional route. Memories can be altered later by storage of related information, interfering with LTM: LTM can include additions to the original event. These findings led Posner (1980) to distinguish between two systems: FIGURE 5.4 Mean reaction time to the probe as a function of probe position.

Blending is another kind of lexical selection error (e.g., “The sky is shining” instead of “The sky is blue” or “The sun is shining”).

The ability to remember the three-letter stimulus declined to only about 50% after 6 seconds (see Figure 6.3), showing that information is lost rapidly from short-term memory. Two (2) courses must be taken to satisfy the major requirement, one (1) for the minor. Eysenck (1979) argued that long-term memory is affected by distinctiveness of processing. Thus, it is predicted that patients with alexia (who have problems with analytic processing) should be impaired in their object recognition.
