    Memory, let’s talk aboutyou walk with your eye half swollen shut, and you go there and you do this move. types of memory storage. Now, we have three broad areas that we want to talk about. So the first is sensory memory, so, the initial recording of the sensory information coming in. So you hear something, you see something, you smell something. It needs to go somewhere. So that would go into a sort of a sensory memory hold, and there, from there you would have another spot that memory can go to which is short-term memory. This is limited in duration and capacity and these aren’t new terms. You’ve heard short-term, long-term memory before all the time, and long-term like the name implies is where things are going to stay fairly indefinitely, but there is still is some timeline. things in your long-term memory will still get lost. So I if ask you right now to tell me your mother’s name and you can say, you know, “My mother’s name is Veronica.” And so you’re like, okay. So that is something that’s been stored in your long-term memory. Now, chances are you’re not going to forget that probably ever. But if I was to ask you, do you remember the name or the name -- or so do you remember the first color of bike that you had? Okay. So if you’re 50, you might say, “Oh, man, I think it was red.” When you’re ten, you’re like, “It was red, for sure.” So as time has gone on, that memory sort of decayed and it’s not so relevant and you lose it, but it’s still there when you’re ten. So you still had that for a very long time, but as you’re 50, you might not remember that...
