Long-Term Memory

In this module, you will see how long-term memory (LTM) works. LTM is the relatively limitless and permanent storage facility for information that you have already processed through sensory memory and working memory. Essentially, after rehearsal (repeated thinking about something), that memory goes to LTM, where it stays and is reorganized from time to time. When you need that information, you pull it into working memory for consideration.
