Memory Workshop

Today at BASICs Memory workshop, we learned about the three different kinds of memory stored in the brain.

The first, Episodic – deals with Events in a persons life – it allows you to remember peoples birthdays, sporting events and all those things to do with Dates – such as appointments to the doctor and all that other stuff

The Second, Semantic – deals in cold hard facts.  Information, Locations and so on

Finally, the third part of the brain – The procedural memory deals with all the doing parts of the brain allowing us to walk talk and breathe, as we grow it allows us to learn new skills
