Have you ever been introduced to a new person only to forget their name seconds after learning it?
Throughout our lives, our brains create a rich tapestry of memories based on the sights, sounds, smells, and everything else that we experience each day.
But why can you easily remember some things, like the make and model of your first car, but not others, like what you had for breakfast last week?
Your memory is basically broken up into three parts: sensory memory, short-term memory, and long-term memory.
The sensory memory is like a small holding tank for split-second information from your senses.
Short-term memory, sometimes known as working memory, is the information that is in your consciousness right now. The duration of short-term memory has been said to be around ten to fifteen seconds long and the capacity of information is about seven items.
Long-term memory is like the hard-drive of your computer or savings account and it stores facts, observations, and stories that you experience in life.
