Q: Is memory the faculty of the mind by which information is encoded? ¶
A: Yes, and stored, and retrieved.
Q: Are memories constructed: "current hypotheses suggest that constructive processes allow individuals to simulate and imagine future episodes"? ¶
A: Yes, and happenings, and scenarios.
Q: Is memory the conscious storage and recollection of data? ¶
A: Yes, Under declarative memory resides semantic and episodic memory.
Q: Is memory very dynamic and comprise distinct phases covering a time window from seconds to even a lifetime? ¶
Q: Are memories stored and retrieved? ¶
Q: Is memory a fast decaying store of visual information? ¶
A: Yes, a type of sensory memory that briefly stores an image which has been perceived for a small duration.
Q: Are memories triggered by a time-cue, such as going to the doctor at 4pm? ¶
A: Yes, Event-based prospective memories are intentions triggered by cues, such as remembering to post a letter after seeing a mailbox. Cues do not need to be related to the action , and lists, sticky-notes, knotted handkerchiefs, or string around the finger all exemplify cues that people use as strategies to enhance prospective memory.
Q: Is memory believed to be actually made up of multiple subcomponents? ¶
A: Yes, such as episodic and procedural memory.
Q: Was memory unaffected? ¶
A: Yes, and suggesting a dichotomy between visual and audial memory.
Q: Is memory understood as an informational processing system with explicit and implicit functioning that is made up of a sensory processor, short-term memory, and long-term memory? ¶
A: Yes, The sensory processor allows information from the outside world to be sensed in the form of chemical and physical stimuli and attended to with various levels of focus and intent.
Q: Are memories reactivated during sleep? ¶
A: Yes, but that the process doesn't enhance every memory.
Q: Is memory also known as working memory? ¶
Q: Is memory a fast decaying store of auditory information? ¶
A: Yes, and another type of sensory memory that briefly stores sounds that have been perceived for short durations.
Q: Is memory in its infancy? ¶
Q: Is memory memory for future intentions, or remembering to remember? ¶
A: Yes, Prospective memory can be further broken down into event- and time-based prospective remembering.
Q: Were memories unable to be stored into long-term memory and that there would be a very short attention span? ¶
A: Yes, as first gleaned from patient Henry Molaison after what was thought to be the full removal of both his hippocampi.
Q: Is memory the gene KIBRA? ¶
A: Yes, and which appears to be associated with the rate at which material is forgotten over a delay period.
Q: Is memory the tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon? ¶
Q: Is memory usually attributed to changes in neuronal synapses? ¶
A: Yes, and thought to be mediated by long-term potentiation and long-term depression.
Q: Was memory approximately 12 items, but that it degraded very quickly? ¶
A: Yes, Because this form of memory degrades so quickly, participants would see the display but be unable to report all of the items before they decayed.
Q: Is memory part of memory preserving some characteristics of our senses pertaining to visual experience? ¶
Q: Is memory episodic memory, "which attempts to capture information such as 'what', 'when' and 'where'"? ¶
A: Yes, With episodic memory, individuals are able to recall specific events such as birthday parties and weddings.
Q: Is memory not a perfect processor? ¶
A: Yes, and is affected by many factors.
Q: Is memory known as amnesia? ¶
Q: Is memory not a carbon copy of the initial experiences? ¶
A: Yes, and memories are updated during retrieval.
Q: Is memory precisely conducted by George Sperling using the "partial report paradigm"? ¶
A: Yes, Subjects were presented with a grid of 12 letters, arranged into three rows of four.
Q: Are memories clear episodic memories of unique and highly emotional events? ¶
Q: Is memory vital to experiences and related to limbic systems? ¶
A: Yes, and it is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action.
Q: Is memory primarily employed in learning motor skills and should be considered a subset of implicit memory? ¶
Q: Is memory a type of sensory memory that represents a database for touch stimuli? ¶
Q: Is memory supported by transient patterns of neuronal communication? ¶
A: Yes, and dependent on regions of the frontal lobe and the parietal lobe.
Q: Are memories enhanced through active consolidation? ¶
Q: Are memories not properly transferred to long-term memory? ¶
Q: Is memory also the premise for what allows us to do everyday activities involving thought? ¶
Q: Is memory believed to rely mostly on an acoustic code for storing information? ¶
A: Yes, and to a lesser extent a visual code.
Q: Was memory 7±2 items? ¶
A: Yes, Modern estimates of the capacity of short-term memory are lower, typically of the order of 4–5 items; however, memory capacity can be increased through a process called chunking.
Q: Is memory that the things remembered are automatically translated into actions? ¶
A: Yes, and thus sometimes difficult to describe.
Q: Is memory also known as declarative and non-declarative systems? ¶
A: Yes, These systems involve the purposeful intention of memory retrieval and storage, or lack thereof.
