MEMORY

is the ability to understand and then internalize information into the memory stores based on the processes of learning, encoding, retention and then retrieval and reactivation of a memory when stimulated. Research has implied that for every fact or memory, a new neuron is formed in the brain.

MEMORY: "An individuals memory contains information which they have previously learnt to memories of vivid life experiences, there is a varied breadth of theories available which attempt to explain memory, although one is yet to be favoured."
