Best answer

The Atkinson–Shiffrin model (also known as the multi-store model or
modal model) is a model of memory proposed in 1968 by Richard Atkinson
and Richard Shiffrin.[1]

The model asserts that human memory has three
separate components:

a sensory register, where sensory information
enters memory,

a short-term store, also called working memory or
short-term memory, which receives and holds input from both the
sensory register and the long-term store, and

a long-term store, where
information which has been rehearsed (explained below) in the
short-term store is held indefinitely. Since its first publication
this model has come under much scrutiny and has been criticized for
various reasons (described below).

However, it is notable for the
significant influence it had in stimulating subsequent memory
