  • Short-Term and Long-Term Memory
    • Memory is a process in which information is retained about the past.
      • Memories are thought to have a physical basis or 'trace'
      • Most psychologists believe there are three types of memory - sensory memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory.
      • SM is visual and auditory information that passes through our senses briefly. SM disappears quickly through spontaneus decy - the trace fades.
