PERCEPTUAL REPRESENTATION SYSTEM (PRS)

a memory system whose purpose is to recognize items and terms, permitting rapid identification of formerly encountered stimulants. Comprehensions are particularly known in the style formerly experienced, that being, a term as observed versus a term as heard. The PUS doesn't acknowledge the connotation of stimulants, which is processed by semantic memory.

PERCEPTUAL REPRESENTATION SYSTEM (PRS): "The PRS relies heavily on prior encounters and memorized knowledge."
