Media Def. and Uses Advantages Disadvantages Magnetic backing storage media Stores the binary data on a disk or tape coated with a material that can be magnetised differently, depending on whether a 0 or 1 is stored. used for tertiary and off-line storage. Data stored in backing storage is permanent so it is NOT lost when the computer is turned off. It is always slower to access data from backing storage than from internal memory. Fixed hard disks A hard-drive built into the case of the computer...

different ways to input the information and it can be done in an automatic fashion, as with a computer, or it can be done manually, as with a human writing the information down. For instance, printed questionnaires would best use a special scanning device called an optical data reader that uses optical mark recognition (OMR); when people complete the OMR form using pencils to fill in boxes on OMR paper an optical mark reader (OMR) can convert the pencil marks into digital data. The best method for...

Memory Storage in the Brain

multiple store theory of memory there are three different storage areas within the brain. Sensory memory is where the five senses are put to use and it has unlimited capacity like iconic and echoic storage and has different storage mechanism. However, the duration of sensory memory is very limited. Work bench memory is an area of the brain where information is stored for long-term memory and retrieval. In the same way, work bench memory has limited duration but...
