Memory levels and types of memory case studies

MEMORY:- Levels and Types of Memory, Case Studies

Memory is the capacity to acquire, retain and recall knowledge and skills.


Humans have 3 different types of memory and 4 levels of memory

Humans have 3 different types of memory and 4 levels of memory:

Types of Memory

  • Episodic Memory

    • Ability to remember events from the past

  • Semantic Memory

    • Knowledge of how the world works

  • Procedural Memory

    • How to accomplish things

  • Examples???


  • Levels of memory

    Levels of Memory:

    • 1) Sensory Memory

      • Receives information from the environment through each of the senses: sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch.

      • Enables you to hold information long enough to record what is necessary from the environment

      • Allows you to select what you think should be retained from all the sensory information you are receiving.


    Levels of memory1

    Levels of Memory:

    • 2) Working Memory

      • Working memory is a system for temporarily storing and managing the information required to carry out complex cognitive tasks such as learning, reasoning, and comprehension.


    Levels of memory2

    Levels of Memory:

    • 3) Short-Term Memory

      • The retention of information for short periods of time (in your conscious mind)

      • Holds information up to 15 to 20 seconds.

      • If you pay attention to the information it may be stored in long term memory, if not, it may discarded.

      • Can store up to seven separate, unorganized items. EX: phone numbers.

      • The most common way to store information is by sound or as a mental picture.


    Levels of memory3

    Levels of Memory:

    • 4) Long-Term Memory

      • The retention of information for long periods of time (in your conscious & unconscious mind)

      • Items that are important and have meaning are stored in LTM

      • We can retain as much info as we want for as long as we want, but we may not always recall everything

      • LTM memories are easier to access if they are recalled regularly, organized and relate to other information.


    Einstein s riddle

    Einstein's Riddle:

    • This is the story behind Einstein's riddle: Albert Einstein supposedly created it in the late 1800s, and it is also said that he claimed 98% of the world population couldn't find a solution. In reality, it isn't that difficult, and I am not sure of the true origin, but I have seen this one floating around the internet, and it is a good brain exercise, so here it is:

    Where Did I Put ... My Memory?

    • http://www.cbc.ca/documentaries/doczone/2010/memory/

    • Synopsis of Documentary:

    • Memory loss is the second greatest health fear for Canadians, after cancer. And memory loss is a growing epidemic, as we live longer, our brains age, and we have more and more information to forget. Throw in the information overload from new technologies. The result: T.M.I. – Too Much Information! No wonder we have “brain cramps” and forget things. Are we all doomed to lose our minds? Or are there ways to keep our memories - and even make them better? If you can lose your memory, can you find it?
