Basic framework of the memory system

In the session, we will focus on the issues of memory of dental patients. After this class, you will learn the basic framework of the memory system and learn how to differentiate declarative and non-declarative memory and identify their roles in dental treatment.

Different ‘forms’ of memory

We used to categorize memory into different forms based on a different time scale. For example, based on different time scales: long-term & short-term memory; from the point of cognitive neuroscience: different memory systems for long-term memory; the sub-categories of memory: declarative & non-declarative memory, and so on.
