According to what science has proved about memory so far, it is a system of codependent brain structures. Each of them fulfill a specific function, hence a disease to any of them causes dysfunctions to the others. It leads to complex memory problems as the Clive’s or Jill’s, where some functioning remain unimpaired, but other abnormalities eventually trigger a general illness. It proves the elements of memory don’t differ in importance for proper functioning. In our current activity we use working memory, which actually integrates running sense impressions stored in sensory memory, short-term memory cooperating with attention to stimuli from environment and experiences kept in long-term memory enable to interpret gained information. The knowledge stored in long-term memory is organized in schemas, mental representations of what we have already learned about the world, which impact on information processing and recollecting.
