Over the years I have learned that memory is the mind's storehouse. I also learned that our memory holds information necessary for survival, and embraces the richness and texture of individual lives. In addition, memory can be a tool to fame and fortune or a traitor at the most inopportune moment.
1) My first question is how does it support the evolutionary psychological belief that memory is a vital function of survival?
2) Explain how episodic and implicit memories can foster learning that contributes to survival.
3) Which area of the brain do you think is most influential in the formation of memory for survival? Explain your response in detail.
