.In psychology, memory is an organism's ability to store, retain, and recall information.^ This is because these stimuli were stored in short term memory , which has a capacity of between 7 and 9 pieces of information for the average person.

Processes

From an information processing perspective there are three main stages in the formation and retrieval of memory:
  • Encoding or registration (receiving, processing and combining of received information)
  • Storage (creation of a permanent record of the encoded information)
  • Retrieval, recall or recollection (calling back the stored information in response to some cue for use in a process or activity)

Sensory memory

.Sensory memory corresponds approximately to the initial 200 - 500 milliseconds after an item is perceived.^ Echoic Memory : Another type of sensory memory is echoic memory, which accounts for sounds that have just been perceived.

The first experiments exploring this form of sensory memory were conducted by George Sperling (1960) using the "partial report paradigm." Subjects were presented with a grid of 12 letters, arranged into three rows of 4. After a brief presentation, subjects were then played either a high, medium or low tone, cuing them which of the rows to report. .Based on these partial report experiments, Sperling was able to show that the capacity of sensory memory was approximately 12 items, but that it degraded very quickly (within a few hundred milliseconds).^ This is because these stimuli were stored in short term memory , which has a capacity of between 7 and 9 pieces of information for the average person.

Working memory

The working memory model.
.In 1974 Baddeley and Hitch proposed a working memory model which replaced the concept of general short term memory with specific, active components.^ Let's test short term memory .

.In this model, working memory consists of three basic stores: the central executive, the phonological loop and the visuo-spatial sketchpad.^ This process is called the articulatory loop , and is part of the newer theories of working memory , an expansion of short term memory.
  • Memory@Everything2.com 18 January 2010 1:37 UTC everything2.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

In 2000 this model was expanded with the multimodal episodic buffer.[5]
The central executive essentially acts as attention. .It channels information to the three component processes: the phonological loop, the visuo-spatial sketchpad, and the episodic buffer.^ The articulatory loop is one process of encoding information into the long term memory.
  • Memory@Everything2.com 18 January 2010 1:37 UTC everything2.com [Source type: FILTERED WITH BAYES]

The phonological loop stores auditory information by silently rehearsing sounds or words in a continuous loop: the articulatory process (for example the repetition of a telephone number over and over again). Then, a short list of data is easier to remember.
The visuospatial sketchpad stores visual and spatial information. .It is engaged when performing spatial tasks (such as judging distances) or visual ones (such as counting the windows on a house or imagining images).^ Kinesthetic Memory : When performing physical tasks such as writing and walking , a type of memory known as kinesthetic memory is used.

L1 cache is faster than L2, and is the first place the CPU looks for its data.

Time-based prospective memories are triggered by a time-cue, such as going to the doctor (action) at 4pm (cue). Event-based prospective memories are intentions triggered by cues, such as remembering to post a letter (action) after seeing a mailbox (cue). Cues do not need to be related to the action (as the mailbox example is), and lists, sticky-notes, knotted handkerchiefs, or string around the finger are all examples of cues that are produced by people as a strategy to enhance prospective memory.

Later research showed this to be false. Research has shown that direct injections of cortisol or epinephrine help the storage of recent experiences. This is also true for stimulation of the amygdala. This proves that excitement enhances memory by the stimulation of hormones that affect the amygdala. Excessive or prolonged stress (with prolonged cortisol) may hurt memory storage. .Patients with amygdalar damage are no more likely to remember emotionally charged words than nonemotionally charged ones.^ I remembered more and understood more than ever before.

.The input comes from secondary and tertiary sensory areas that have processed the information a lot already.^ When information is received in the brain, it goes through several levels of sensory processing while it is stored; this is how human beings learn , by storing previously experienced environment al signals and comparing new ones to the ones already stored in the brain.

Interference can hamper memorization and retrieval. .There is retroactive interference when learning new information causes forgetting of old information, and proactive interference where learning one piece of information makes it harder to learn similar new information.^ I turned it on and there was a picture that one of his friends had taken the night of his accident; he was sitting at his desk in his room and he was making a funny face and pretending to be picking his nose.

Emotion can have a powerful impact on memory. .Numerous studies have shown that the most vivid autobiographical memories tend to be of emotional events, which are likely to be recalled more often and with more clarity and detail than neutral events.^ By this I mean those memories which are based on sensory information and we can "recall", like "what did I have for breakfast".

Some of the recommendations are to stay intellectually active through learning, training or reading, to keep physically active so to promote blood circulation to the brain, to socialize, to reduce stress, to keep sleep time regular, to avoid depression or emotional instability and to observe good nutrition.
While tofu consumption has been linked with worse memory in the elderly, tempeh (a fermented whole soybean product) was independently related to better memory, potentially due to its high folate levels.[16]

Memory tasks

  • Paired associate learning - when one learns to associate one specific word with another. .For example when given a word such as "safe" one must learn to say another specific word, such as "green". This is stimulus and response.^ Because I am so lonely, you see, no one comes around, I'll take the words I want to say And quietly choke them down .

    ^ No one will let me say the words I need to say Why does a mothers grief scare everyone away?

    [17]
  • .
  • Free recall - during this task a subject would be asked to study a list of words and then sometime later they will be asked to recall or write down as many words that they can remember.^ The Class of 1999 was a very close knit group and they shared many fun times during the four years they were all together.

    ^ While many of Matthew's friends stood in the chapel and told of the sweet and wonderful things they would always remember about my son; Monkey choose to play a final song for him at his grave.

Memory is the part of the mind that keeps the things that you can remember. It is the mind's ability to store information to use later. It is studied in a special science called "cognitive psychology". There are three main types of memory:

  1. Sensory memory, in which sensations are first noticed, like smelling a flower.
  2. Short-term memory, the ability to keep information in mind for a short time, like remembering a phone number long enough to find a piece of paper.
  3. Long-term memory, the ability to remember things long after they happen, like remembering a holiday you had last year.
