ANOETIC MEMORY

the most basic and fundamental of memory in Endel Tulving's monohierarchic theory of memory. Refers to any type of learning that is recalled without any conscious awareness. In laboratory studies, this type of memory has been shown to be efficient and enhance the speed of performance. Is subordinate to higher-order memory processes, for example, noetic and autonoetic memory.

ANOETIC MEMORY: "Anoetic memory does not require a person to consciously set out to learn."
