Conversational Practice

1. Speak about:

a) the way the information is stored;

b) the way the information is recollected;

c) the technique short-term memory serves;

d) the technique long-term memory serves;

e) two ideas the brain works.

2. Clarify what we mean by the phrases:

1. Short-term memory serves as a kind of holding pen for data we may or may not want to retain.

2. In order for information to make the leap from STM to LTM, it must have some significance or association.

Expand the given statements and develop each of them into a paragraph.

1. Short-term memory is our simplest memory-storage.

What goes in the brain when we process a thought? Here opinions diverge. Some suggest that the structure of a nerve pathway changes when data are preserved, forming a neural road map of a thought. Others think brain works holographically, each new piece of information being stored in all areas of the brain.
