Abstract

             This paper is an exploration of the cognitive process of chunking. Three research studies on the topic of chunking will be explored to expound on the topic and provide perspective on the implications of chunking on the overall storage and retrieval system of the brain. Each of the studies is from a different area of memory. One is from language, one from number processing and the final study is from the topic of ideomotor principle. Each study provides a unique perspective on how chunking is used to facilitate human learning.
