Memory


The memory is a restoration of the past from the material preserved in memory, in it one remembers objects, characters or lived experiences. Sometimes the memory comes from an impression or image(s) that remains in the memory of some situation, be it tragic, sad or happy. Example: “That old house reminds me of my childhood with my parents”.

A memory is a stored configuration of connections between neurons in the brain. There are approximately 100 billion such neurons, each of which can form perhaps 5,000 to 10,000 synaptic connections with other neurons. neurons, which yield a total of around 500 to 1,000 trillion synapses in the average adult brain. =”http:>

Neuroscientists typically classify memories into two types: declarative and nondeclarative. Declarative memories are things that we know we remember, like the smell of a meal or what happened yesterday afternoon. While the non-declarative ones are matters that we know without consciously thinking about them, like riding a bicycle.

The synapses in the brain are strengthened or weakened, when the latter happens over time, a loss of memory is occurring, this alteration is known as amnesia. Also, there are other memory abnormalities such as hypomnesia (decreased memory capacity), and hypermnesia (increased or hyperactive memory).

On the other hand, the memory is an object that a person gives to another or that he brings from somewhere so that the person who receives it always remembers him, that place or object.
