PROCEDURAL MEMORY

Procedural memory is defined as long-term memory of the skills required. Often procedural memory is easier shown than explained. For instance, it is difficult to explain each step while driving, but it is easy to show the procedural memory as you do so.

PROCEDURAL MEMORY: "Procedural memory allows us to do a job easier than explaining how it is done."
