Memory Exercises

Memory is a cognitive ability that allows us to encode, store, and remember information. There are three types of memory: sensory, long-term, and short-term. Long-term memory allows us to store and remember information related to our lives or general information related to our environment. Short-term memory allows us to retain a limited amount of information for a brief period to complete daily activities, such as remembering the steps completed and needed to be done to prepare a meal. Sensory memory allows us to perceive the information around us. Strong memory processes are essential for survival and daily interaction with our environment. Memory processes occur in the hippocampus along with input from other brain regions.
