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…
