Document Summary

Cognition: mental activities and processes associated with thinking, knowing remembering and communicating information.

Memory: the persistence of learning over time through the storage and retrieval of information. Recall: a measure of memory in which the person must retrieve information learned earlier, as on a fill- in-the-blank test.
