What is memory?

Memory is what makes us who we are: it is the process by which we store and recall experiences, facts and information, and how to perform tasks.

What are the different types of memory?

You likely already know that memory is split into two types: short-term and long-term. This classifies memories based on length of time they are stored by the brain.

Long-term memories can be further categorised as either concious or unconscious memories.
