A starter for 10 …. . What is episodic memory? What is semantic memory? Where are episodic and semantic memory stored? Where in the brain are procedural memories (skills) linked to? Emotional memories involve links between two parts of the brain. What are they? Where is spatial memory located?

Activity Using p 244 and 245 of your text book complete the following: Design

Activity Using p 244 and 245 of your text book complete the following: Design a flow chart/diagram to summarise the different locations of memory Elaborate on your diagram by putting in personal examples to help encode the information you are learning

Episodic Memory The memory of events and experiences Recall of personal facts Semantic Memory

Episodic Memory The memory of events and experiences Recall of personal facts Semantic Memory The record of facts and concepts Recall of general knowledge, non-personal facts and abstract ideas

Storage of Episodic and Semantic Memories Episodic and semantic memories are stored in a

Storage of Episodic and Semantic Memories Episodic and semantic memories are stored in a region of the cerebral cortex called the temporal lobe This is where the sensory information was received and coded

Storage of Episodic and Semantic Memories Episodic and semantic memory are stored in the region of the cortex where the sensory information was first received and encoded. Procedural memories (skills) are linked to the motor cortex. Emotional memories involve links between the cortex and the limbic system. Spatial memory is located in the limbic system.

Procedural Memories Contain information needed to perform motor skills mental skills ‘How to’ information

Emotional Memories Are formed as a result of positive or negative associations with certain stimuli Involve links between the cerebral cortex and limbic system

Spatial Memories Hold information that can be recalled about a person’s environment and its

Spatial Memories Hold information that can be recalled about a person’s environment and its spatial orientation E. g. the relationship of one object to another in a room Spatial memory is located in the limbic system in the hippocampus
