OverloadThis episode explores the capacity of the human brain to process sensory stimuli into short-term memory and the impact it can have on situational awareness.

 

Length: 37 minutes

Your brain is awesome at capturing, processing, storing and recalling information. But it has limitations, especially when it comes to memory under stress. There are four steps in the process of developing a memory: Encoding, storage, retrieval and forgetting. The process is quite complex. Perhaps I’ll dedicate a future chapter to walking readers through the complete process of memory formation. But for now, I am going to focus on the first step, encoding.
