1 How Are Ideas Represented In Memory? Human memory is one of the most interesting mysteries of our brain. Numerous researches have been exploring the topic and still there is so much to discover. How do we store information? Sometimes people explain it to children that our memory is a huge storage with many shells and sections, but actually it is much more complicated than that. Ideas we store are interconnected and classified in many ways. What we remember is not necessarily given in words and even when it is, it cannot be separated from images, perceptions and emotions. Understanding of how memory works requires a lot of research, reading and effort, so now we will pay attention only to one aspect. This work aims to give the reader a short review of how ideas, information or knowledge are represented in memory. Traditionally, psychology offers a variety of theories and approaches to the issue. Referring to psychoanalytic approach is not relevant considering the limitation of volume, so about that aspect the reader can know more from other sources, meanwhile further paragraphs will offer a review of mainly cognitive approaches to understanding of memory functioning.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
