been defined in many different ways. Your memory is the part of your brain that enables
you to remember things that we see as well as other sensory information, such
as smells, tastes, and what we touch.
There are two kinds of long term memory. The first kind is procedural memory.
This kind of memory stores information on how to do things such as driving a car, hitting
a baseball bat, or playing an instrument. This type of memory long-lasting. The memories
are actions, habits, or skills that are learned over time. These memories can be changed
The other kind of
long term memory is declarative memory. This memory contains memories that you have
gathered from your childhood until you die. No one knows where this database is located,
but it seems that each memory has a location of its own.
you remember a person saying something, or you remember the shape of his face. The
components of this memory (color of hair, complexion, or shape of their face) are stored
in different locations. They are associated with each other so that if you remember just
one thing, such as the color of the hair, then you may be able to recall that
persons name from remembering that one detail.
The Working Memory
memory allows the brain to evaluate the incoming information, and dispose of the
information that is to be rejected, and store the information that is to be memorized.
In addition to all of the other memory, we have the external memory. This
memory stores all of the stories we were told as a baby. This is where things are stored
that you havent quite forgotten, but there not something you think about that often.
