Memory Storage

The memory consists of a large number of unorganized examples. Memory storage consists of putting an additional example into the memory. When reinforcement occurs, the value in the accumulator is transformed by multiplication by a memory storage constant, k*, that has a normal distribution, n(Mt*, °k*), and put into the memory as another example. This provides a way to separate the perceived time (in the accumulator) from the remembered time, and it has been critical for the analysis of individual differences, drug effects, and lesion effects (see Meck, 1983, 1996, this volume).
