Describe the impact of schemas on memory. Explain how this may influence social
2 years ago
Schemas act as a filter in that they call our attention to some information and away from other information. This ensures that information that is consistent with our schemas is more likely to enter the memory system. Inconsistent information may be remembered, but will be marked with a 'tag' to indicate that it is exceptional information. Next, schemas may guide our recall of information and the use of remembered information. Research suggests that information that is consistent with our schemas is more easily recalled and used than in information that is inconsistent with our schemas. These effects are more pronounced with well-developed schemas and when individuals are facing a heavy cognitive load. The effect of schemas on memory may influence social thought directly by influencing the memories we record and retrieve and indirectly by creating self-fulfilling prophecies.
