Can you remember this PowerPoint? : 

Can you remember this PowerPoint? Rodney Collins Class: Reading Power Brain Research Project Topic: Long Term and Short Term Memory

Slide 2: 

Lets first begin by taking a test!!! Click here. Enjoy!!! Remember do not start writing the letters down until after the letters have disappeared. After taking this test you should be able to determine if you have a good short term memory.

What is Short Term Memory : 

What is Short Term Memory Short Term Memory is a system of temporarily storing and managing information required to do tasks such as learning, reasoning, and comprehension. Short term memory will be lost in just a few moments if it’s not repeated. If information is not repeated, we forget 90 percent of a class after 30 days. Most of this loss happens within the first few hours after the class.

Short Term Cont. : 

Short Term Cont. The average human can remember seven (give or take two) things at once. Ex. R-E-Y-T-O-P-B-M-V-C Now without looking at the letters (Just like in the test) recall how many you can remember. If you remember all ten you must be some kind of super human.

Slide 5: 

Remembering random letters and numbers is a lot harder than remembering letters and numbers that are put together and have meaning. Combining these letters and numbers is called clustering/chunking. Examples of Clustering/Chunking is: S-h-o-r-t T-e-r-m M-e-m-o-r-y= Short Term Memory 8-6-7-5-3-0-9= 867-5309 How could you forget this?

Long Term Memory : 

Long Term Memory Long Term Memory is a system for permanently storing, managing, and retrieving information for a later use. Long term memory can last (just like the name says) a long time and it can even last for a lifetime. There is no limit for the amount of long term memory that someone can have. It takes days/months/years to create long term memory.

Long Term Memory Cont. : 

Long Term Memory Cont. There is two types of long term memory. Declarative Procedural

Declarative : 

Declarative Declarative memory is conscious thought. There are two subcategories to declarative memory Episodic- is memories, life experiences, and events. Examples: Your first day of school. Wedding Day Semantic- is ideas, meanings, and concepts. Examples: Learning Mathematic equations Business Concepts

Procedural : 

Procedural Procedural is memory that we use unconsciously(it comes naturally). This includes things like habits, skills, and experiences that we don’t recall. Examples: Learning how to shoot a basketball Tying your shoe A friend recalling a memory that triggered other memories

Ways to Improve our Memory : 

Ways to Improve our Memory Repetition- Is a must for remembering things, like that definition of a word or the process of solving a math problem. Visual aids- Some people memorize things better if the see it visually. Relate what you’re trying to learn with something else. For instance if you are trying to remember the less than symbol. You think < because it looks somewhat like a L for less than. Eliminate distractions- By doing this you will be more focused on the tasks or whatever it may be. Thus making it easier to grasp and memorize.

More about Human Memory : 

More about Human Memory Even when we are a little kid we have a working memory. We remember who our parents are and we remember how to tie our shoes. These are just a few things. Unfortunately as we get older our memory goes away somewhat. Our short term memory is effected the most.

Conclusion : 

Conclusion By now you should be able identify what short term and long term memory is and how they differ. You should also be able to identify some ways you can improve a working memory. So I will conclude with this question, can you remember this PowerPoint?
