Remembering and Forgetting

In this unit, we've already discussed the types of memory and the processes are brains use in order to store information in each type of memory.  The video below will discuss some of the reasons why it is difficult to later bring back that information from our memories and provide tips to help you store information in a more "user friendly" manner.
