Methods of Study of Memory

  • I. S. Beritashvili


We used different methods for the study of memory, the particular method depending on the particular task. Our work entailed (1) visual perception of objects and the retention of their images; (2) auditory perception and the retention of an auditory image—the direction of the sound and its source; (3) vestibular perception and the retention of the image of the path traversed;(4) complex perception of an object by means of several sensory organs: vision, olfaction, taste, and the vestibular perception; (5) emotional stimuli in the form of fear; and finally (6) conditioned reflex behavior following the perception of a conditional signal.
