Long-term Memory (LTM)
- want to get this info into your long-term memory system
- some people do not differentiate between semantic and episodic memories, just lump
them into a single category of explicit LTM’s
1. procedural memory
a. stores knowledge of “how to do” a skill or activity (generally related to
movements)
b. we know “how to do” something, but not able to verbally describe it well (e.g.,
shooting a basketball, swimming)
c. implicit LTM’s
d. non-verbalizable and unconscious (do not need to be aware of access to it)
2. semantic memory
. general knowledge about the world developed from many experiences
a. factual and conceptual
b. e.g., the date Columbus discovered America
3. episodic memory
. knowledge about personally experienced events
a. tend to be the most robust memories, because they are multi-sensory
b. tend to be emotionally developed
c. e.g., where we were when Princess Diana dies, or where we were when we
heard about 9/11
