Various storage facilities

Based on the work with patients suffering from various brain injuries, the researchers suggested that both explicit and implicit memory manifest in various forms. This is shown in fig. 8.11.

Estimated classification of various memory stores

. Squire et al. (Squire et al., 1990) offer several different memory systems. The main difference is made between explicit and implicit memory (they call them respectively declarative and non-declarative memory). There are at least 4 types of implicit memory that are involved in skills, relief, conditioning, and some non-associative phenomena, respectively (for example, getting used to a repeated stimulus). There are 2 types of explicit memory: semantic and episodic.

The main difference lies between explicit and implicit memory. Further division of implicit memory is associated with sensorimotor skills (for example, reading words reflected in the mirror) and relief (as in the example with the addition of the basis of words). The reason for the assumption of the participation of various memory stores in skills and relief is brain impairment in patients (those who are at an early stage of Alzheimer's disease) who normally learn motor skills, but who have less relief than normal people. In contrast, there are patients with another brain disorder (Huntington's chorea) who have normal relief, but impaired learning of new motor skills (Schacter, 1989).

In the classification presented in fig.
8.11, two types of explicit memory are postulated - episodic and semantic. Episodic facts are personally experienced episodes, semantic facts are general truths. For example, your recollections of high school graduation and what you ate for dinner last night are episodic facts. In both of these cases, the episode is encoded with its reference to your personality (your graduation from school, your lunch, etc.), and often this episode is also encoded with reference to a specific time and place. All this differs from semantic facts, examples of which are your memory, or the knowledge that the word “bachelor” means “unmarried person” or that 30 days in September. In these cases, knowledge is encoded not with respect to you or a particular place or time, but with reference to another knowledge. For example, you probably don’t remember the context in which you learned that every fourth year February has 29 days (Tulving, 1985).

This distinction between semantic and episodic memory is consistent with the fact that although individuals with amnesia experience extreme difficulty recalling episodes of their own lives, their overall erudition generally remains normal.

    MEMORY AND ITS VIOLATIONS. Memory is a special kind of psychic d-ti, connected with the perception, retention and reproduction of information. Memory is not only biological, but also psychological. All biological systems have memory mechanisms (fixation, storage, reading). Memory characteristics: - the duration and formation of traces - the strength and duration of the retention of events - the amount captured
  2. Creating Your Milk Vault
    Just as you save money in a bank for a rainy day, it would be wise to create a vault of your milk in case circumstances arise that force you to interrupt feeding for a day or two. Open a “milk account” in your freezer and create a reserve of your “white gold” for several
  3. Memory mechanisms
    Education of a person, and of any other creature, is carried out thanks to the memory, which, according to the "father of Russian physiology" I. Sechenov, is the "cornerstone of mental development." Sechenov also has another winged expression that is directly related to mnemonics, that is, to the technique of memorization: “The doctrine of the basic conditions of memory is a doctrine of the power uniting,
  4. Memory options
    Type of memory. Four types of memory are usually distinguished: visual, auditory, motor (motor) and mixed. How to set your memory type? Suppose, while working with a book by profession, you notice that it is best to remember what you read when you read silently, to yourself. In an effort to recall any thought, formula or figure from what you just read, you must first imagine, in
  6. Examination of a patient with memory impairment
    (from a textbook) A number of psychological techniques are used to study memory. The state of the mechanical memory check. By memorizing 10 words: the subject is slowly called 10 words and asked to repeat them, the order of repetition does not matter. Then these same words are repeated up to 5 times. After each repetition, it is noted how many words out of 10 the patient said. An hour later they are asked to name the same again
  7. Transfer from short-term memory to long-term
    As we learned from the previous one, short-term memory has two main functions. First of all, it stores material needed for a short time, and serves as a workspace for calculations in the mind. Another possible function is that it serves as an intermediate station on the way to long-term memory. That is, while information is encoded or transferred to long-term memory, it can
  8. Memory development
    Preschool age is characterized by intensive development of the ability to memorize and reproduce. The period for which people and events are remembered is postponed for an indefinitely long period in preschool age. In fact, if it is difficult or almost impossible for us to recall any of the events of early childhood, then preschool childhood leaves many vivid memories. This is especially true for
  9. Diagnostics of figurative and logical memory
    Method “Memory for images” Designed to study figurative memory. The technique is used in professional selection. The essence of the method lies in the fact that the subject is exposed to a table with 16 images for 20 s. Images must be remembered and reproduced on the form within 1 minute. Instruction: “You will be presented with a table with images. Your task is to take 20 seconds
  10. The results of the study of memory, attention, sensorimotor reactions
    Memory defects were found in all patients without exception, including the control group. However, their qualitative analysis revealed significant differences depending on the severity of ABC. A statistically significant decrease in the number of memorized words is noted in the direct, delayed reproduction and productivity of memorization. Productivity is 1.5 times less in group III,
    Attention, memory and imagination in preschool age have similarities in development. If in early childhood there are special forms of orienting actions that can be defined as actions of perception and thinking, and in preschool age such actions are continuously complicated and improved, then attention, memory and imagination do not acquire independence for a long time. Baby not
  12. Litargus, i.e. cold sarsam, in translation - memory loss
    Litargus is called the mucous tumor that forms inside the cranium, and this is the mucous sarsam. For the most part, a tumor arises in the channels of the substance of the brain, and not in its membranes, ventricles, or body, because mucus, due to the density of the membranes, rarely penetrates into the membranes [of the brain] and accumulates there [and rarely penetrates] into the substance of the brain due to the stickiness of the latter. Also pleurisy for the most part
  13. Rebuilding memory and attention
    Compression of the essay does not allow us to analyze in detail all the basic mental functions that take part in the operation we are studying. Therefore, we restrict ourselves to the most general mention of the fate of the most important of them, without which the psychological structure of the use of tools would remain unclear for us. In the first place by the degree of participation in this operation should be given attention. All
  14. The development of perception, attention, memory and thinking of a preschooler
    Attention to various aspects of the intellectual development of a preschooler is due to his upcoming educational activities and the level of intellectual readiness. We give a general description of the formation of cognitive processes of preschoolers. Fine motor skills. The level of development of fine motor skills is associated with the development of certain types of cognitive activity and speech. Therefore, it is important to pay attention to
  15. Brain systems involved in learning and memory
    The function of the cerebellum is to control all types of movements. He "programs" the coordination of numerous individual movements that make up one motor act. With bilateral lesions of the hippocampus, learning processes and memory for upcoming events are seriously impaired. The simultaneous removal of the hippocampus and tonsil destroys both the results of previous training and
