SHORT-TERM MEMORY (STM)

a short period of recall we have for things that happened recently and is separate from our long term memory where lots of information is stored for us to recall at a later time. See immediate memory; modal model of memory; Multistore model of memory; primary memory.

SHORT-TERM MEMORY (STM): "Our short term memory is just one component of our memory storage system."
