Through one of my classes in psychology, I have found it fascinating that what we originally thought was just our memory, has now been broken down into short-term, long-term memory, implicit and explicit memory! This includes information processing and working memory too. I also have learned from our readings in one of my psychology classes that we get things from sensory memory and this then transfers to short-term and then long-term memory. By the way, we do this almost instantly! We do not think twice about this happening, it just happens as experiences occur.
What are your thoughts on this happening almost instantly?
