    Does priorities play a role in semantic network theory

    This describes how information gets to be stored in the LTM-Long Term Memory, the theory is the semantic network The information gets linked and categorized and whether it can be stored it says that if the lengths are shorter it has better strength. So it needs to be short links and the association sorts these concepts to then manage to store these in LTM, very complex and can be confusing

    Psychology -> Memory: the semantic network theory The semantic network theory The semantic network theory describes how information is likely to be stored in LTM. It proposes that: Information is likely to be stored in terms of concepts or categories which are linked together in terms of their meaning. The links between these concepts are organised into a hierarchy where the links vary in length; and The length of the links is related to the strength of the association between the concepts; the shorter the link between concepts, the stronger the association.

    The shorter the link the stronger the association and easier the retreaval ! wrong?

    What causes the lenth of the links and the weakness in the association?

    Getting the information out of our heads so we can use it is a pretty important part of memory. There are basically two main types of retrieval; recognition and recall.
