Types of Memory (cont.) Types of Memory (cont.) There are three different types (aspects or parts) of long-term memory. These types of memory are episodic, Semantic, and Procedural. Episodic memories, is our ability to recall personal experiences from our past. Semantic Memory, stores facts and generalized information. It contains verbal information, concepts, rules, principles, and problem-solving skills. Procedural Memory refers to the ability of remembering how a certain task is performed to employ a strategy. Information Storage Information that is stored to memory can have an affect on critical thinking in a few of different ways. Amongst these ways is “reflection” where one remembers past events that may be later reenacted or feel as though they were reenacted. Information stored in ones long-term memory holds ones experiences and senses. These experiences' and senses' outcomes have a tendency to effect the way your body uses the information. Information Storage (Cont.) • Visual Memory -Visual memory has a few different forms; these forms consist of facial recognition, familiarization with images or numbers. This also includes depth perception, observation, and judgment of character. Visual Memory Photographic Memory • “According to Gray and Gummerman, the typical definition is the ability to retain an accurate, detailed visual image of a complex scene or pattern (sometimes popularly known as photographic memory) or the ability, possessed by a minority of people, to 'see' an image that is an exact copy of the original sensory experience.” http://pages.slc.edu/~ebj/minds/student_pages/sallyjane/definition.html • There are some that would say that there is no such thing as a photographic memory. I would beg to differ here, after having seen license plate with a quick glance I am able to remember those numbers/letters. However, the information will stay for a while but will fade away if I am not instilling it into my mind.

    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.
