The flowchart for the theory of memory discussed in the first session indicates that all incoming information first passes through Sensory Memory (SM) before it enters ShortTerm Memory (STM). There it can be maintained by rehearsal and either successfully encoded for storage in LongTerm Memory (LTM) or forgotten. In retrieval, the information passes from LTM back to STM, where it enters our consciousness. A summary of the characteristics of each stage of memory follows.
