What is memory?

Cognitive process by which information is encoded, stored, and retireved over time. In other words, is the ability of the brain to retain and recall past experiences, knowledge, and skills.

EVERYDAY SITUATIONS EXAMPLES

TYPES OF MEMORY

Sensory Memory

Initial stage of memory processing. Briefly holds information from the environment. Serves as a temporary buffer.

Short-Term Memory

"Working memory", temporarily stores and processes information for immediate use. 20-30 seconds without rehearsal.

Long-Term Memory

Storage system responsible for retaining information over longer periods: minutes to years, indefinetely. Vast capacity, can hold a wide range of knowledge.

HOW MEMORY ENHANCES TEXT COMPREHENSION?

Facilitates the encoding, storage and retrieval of information.

Captures and processes the textual context as it is read. Our memory allows us to form mental representations of the text.

Supports the storage of information, which is essential for building upon prior knowledge.

Memory facilitates the retrieval of stored information, like when we attempt to answer questions about its content.

TEAMWORK

Do some research on memorization techniques!

Did you know...Our brain has the capacity to store an incredible amount of information? Scientists estimate that the human brain can hold up to 2.5 petabytes of data, which is equivalent to about 3 million hours of TV shows—enough to binge-watch continuously for over 300 years!

All this allows us to become more proficient readers and learners.

By employing effective memorization techniques we can comprehend and analyze texts effectively.

Memory plays a fundamental role in text comprehension
