Memory- capacity to acquire + retain useable skills +knowledge. Memory is a story that alters through tellings and retellings. What you pay attention to becomes your short-term memory, and any unrehearsed info is lost. Short-term memory encodes to long-term memory, which may be lost over time. People believe multiple memory systems that don"t follow 3-stage sequence. Modal memory model: 3-stage sys. that involves sensory memory, short and long term memory.
