    For our purposes the distinction is: Perceptual Memory ears and early perceptual systems Has a lifespan of 1/2s – a few seconds depending on  perceptual domain Short Term Memory (STM) The information we are actively thinking about  right now   which has a lifespan of seconds to minutes, unless  actively refreshed Long Term Memory (LTM) Information we can dig up if we need to, which has a  lifespan as long as we do, baring TBI Types of memory

    Serial position curve Primacy effect The first few items in  a list are easy to  recall Putting items into  LTM requires time  and attention Items early in the list  get more time and  attention Items later in the list  get less attention Types of memory
