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.
