What Is The Conveyor Belt Theory

- Dec 18, 2018-

Conveyor belt theory is a kind of time memory theory. Taiwanese psychologist Zeng Zhilang and American psychologist Chorton and others introduced it in 1980. The theory holds that the event representation of tissue in memory is stored by the sequence in which events occur. When the new information is encoded, the old part is "retired" as the past. In other words, the storage of events in memory is like placing a package in a moving conveyor belt seven in order, the sooner it is placed, the smaller its vision, until it disappears. [1]

When the new information is encoded, the old part is "retired" as the past. In other words, the storage of events in memory is like placing a package in a moving conveyor belt seven in order, the sooner it is placed, the smaller its vision, until it disappears. The time to judge a project is to estimate the distance from the present in the memory storage. The longer the trajectory, the farther away from the psychological. According to this theory, the memory of time is based on the information of the period of memory, which is derived from the basic process related to the passage of time. Therefore, when the order of the clues of the memories (forward or backward) is consistent, it is better than the random order of memories. It was supported by some experiments and was also opposed by some experiments. This theory can explain the recent events well, but can not reasonably explain the series position effect of the time series.
