Types of memory

How Many Types of Memory Do We Have?
  • Immediate memory: That memory which helps to recall something in a fraction of a second after perceiving the object or receiving the impulse from a stimulus. The time of retention is very short by a fraction to a few seconds. Old sense impressions disappear in a few seconds. Past impressions are erased and replaced by new ones. Such type of memory is needed very often. A good example is the remembering of the ticket number and a casual phone number.
  • Short term memory: This is also temporary but a little more than the immediate memory in time factor. The time for such type of memory is up to 30 seconds. By rehearsal and regular practice, the time of memory can be extended to a few more seconds.
  • Long term memory: A special capacity is required to store the experiences. No rehearsal is needed and there is no decay of memory. Coding arrangement is done in mind by the brain for permanent memory. Bringing back for use is at ease.
  • Rote memory: The case of memorizing a matter without understanding is called rote memory. Memorizing a rhyme or some slogans without understanding is an example for rote memory.
