1 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts1 Your Brain Long-Term Memory, How to Enhance Your Memory, and How the Connections Grow 1

2 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts2 Long-Term Memory is an Abstract Concept (So Lets Use An Analogy) Long-Term Memory is part of your brains filing system. It has at least 2 filing cabinets. Each filing cabinet has different drawers with different kinds of memories. Explicit Memory Implicit Memory Semantic Episodic Procedural Classically- Conditioned Priming

3 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts3 The Drawers Have Specific Names Explicit or Declarative Semantic Episodic Implicit or Non-declarative Procedural Classically-Conditioned Priming

4 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts4 So Lets Look at Your Drawers Explicit or Declarative (Conscious Recall) Semantic (Facts and General Info) Episodic (Personal Experiences and Events) Implicit or Non- declarative (No Conscious Recall) Procedural (Motor Skills and Habits) Classically-Conditioned (Response to Conditioned Stimuli) Priming (Earlier Exposure) Explicit Memory Implicit Memory Semantic Episodic Procedural Classically- Conditioned Priming

5 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts5 The Concept of Long-Term Memory 5 Your brain stores different parts of your Long-Term Memory in different physical sections. When your brain needs a memory, it activates that physical section & extracts the memory. Like a computer gets data from its memory storage.

6 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts6 And what if the data isnt in the correct drawer when your brain searches for the missing piece?

7 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts7 Want to enhance your memory? Try the process of SQ4R 1.Survey 2.Question 3.Read 4.Recite 5.Review 6.Write

8 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts8 To Remember Better, Use the Process of SQ4R SurveyQuestionReadReciteReviewWrite It works for anything you want to remember Try it today. What is something you want to remember better, longer, more solidly? For school?For fun?For work?

9 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts9 What memory do you want to build? For a stronger, more solid, enhanced memory, SQ4R Survey Question Read Recite Review Write

10 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts10 Learning modifies the brains neural networks in 2 ways Learning modifies the brains neural networks in 2 ways 1. Dendrites grow more spines, more synapses, more receptor sites, more sensitivity What does growing more spines (branches) mean? I have 3 branches I have 4 branches. I am learning more. 10

11 GayleFisherYourBrainFacts11 Learning modifies the brains neural networks in 2 ways 1. Dendrites grow more synapses, more receptor sites, more sensitivity What does that mean? What does that mean? (go see Wikipedia) Link to another photo Synapses and Receptor Sites 11
