How We Remember: Retrieval

2 ways to retrieve information from long-term memory:

  • 1)Recognition

  • 2)Recalling

    • Cues can be triggered when recalling info. It is basically an event, thought, picture, word, sound, etc. that triggers the retrieval of info. from long-term memory.

Why we forget
Why We Forget

  • An important part of the memory process is making decisions about what information is good to you and worth the effort to decipher it

  • 1. Some information never gets to your memory bank

  • 2. Memories that enter the memory bank may be overtaken with future similar info. that makes the original memory un-retainable

  • 3. Info. that you are completely new on will be harder to remember

  • 4. Some info. can be remembered once you find the proper cue

  • 5. The way we are influences what and how we remember

  • 6. Some pieces of remembered info. may gather together incorrectly

  • 7. Some memories just go away…
