MENTAL MODEL

explains the sometimes graphical representation of the relationships formed between a set of variables, for example a model which explains how memories are internalized could be classed as a mental model as it involves basic psychological processes and applies them to a real-life situation which we currently do not understand and hence apply models to further our theories surrounding the matter.

MENTAL MODEL: "There is a wide range of models which are used in psychoanalysis, mental models are specifically used to examine relationships between two variables. "
