7IntroductionWorking memory is a great part of the brain that regulates our attentiveness to task and how we manage things that distract us. Working memory also applies strategies for our learning experiences and it helps form long-term memory. Long-term memory is the virtually limitless cognitive system that permanently stores, manages and retrieves information for later use. (Rosser-Majors, 2017). There are three types of memory, sensory, short-term and long-term. Memory is the process of retaining and recalling experiences or information, sensory memory is usually brief and last for a varying amounts of time. Short-term or working memory records information that is currently being used and usually last about 20 seconds, long-term memory holds a huge quantity of information which can be stored for longer periods of time. This information is usually wide-ranging, and includes all of our memories and basic knowledge. In this paper we will discuss memory development and explain effective processing, attention and perception, types of knowledge, potential strategies and false-memory development. Memory DevelopmentThe central system is made up of a visual sketch pad which holds and manages spatial information, these are visual meaning. The episodic buffer creates representations of information, which is our long-term memory, then the phonological loop holds and manages auditory information which is language. These all make up the central executive system that controls and filters information. This was discovered in 1974 by Baddeley and Hitch they proposed 3 component models of working memory. Memory can be thought of as the use of pastexperiences to affect or influence current behavior. Memory is basically the sum total of what we

Although memory is related to learning, they are still modified by behavior. When we learn, the neurons in our brains get together and make an experience. Memory depends on learning and it makes us store and retrieve learned information.
