Classification Of Memory

Memory is not a unitary construct but instead reflects a number of distinct cognitive abilities that can be categorized along a number of different dimensions. For example, one can characterize memory based on the amount of time that elapses between presentation and recall of information (e.g., short- vs long-term memory) or the nature of the information that is remembered (e.g., visual vs verbal).
