Houston Ostlund Discussion Questions Section 5 10/4/07 5:45 1) Implicit memory is memory people experience when they are influenced by past events without any particular remembrance of these events. It differs from “regular” memory in that by using our regular memory, we specifically recall experiences that we have had and thus we remember in a traditional sense. It’s just like one recalling what they did the day before. One can see the past days events in their head. But implicit memory is memory that has influence over our actions and thoughts, although we don’t realize it. 2) Dr. Schecter thought it was suitable to experiment with memory on amnesic patients. People with amnesia obviously have problems remembering things in a “regular” sense. But Schecter was able to test his theories on implicit memories by tapping into different parts of their brain that were not damaged. By doing so he realized that there is more than one type of memory and even more interesting, multiple area in the brain that focuses on memory.
