Since antiquity, philosophers and orators try to understand the functioning of memory. They had already developed techniques that we still use successfully today.
In the 19th century, Ebbinghaus began scientifically studying memory and discovered the laws of how we forget and William James was the first to propose to split the memory into several distinct functions.
Today, we distinguish dozens of specific types of memories. In this course, we will focus on the main 3 memory systems, which are: The Sensory memory
, the short-term memory ( or working memory) and the long-term memory
This course has the ambition to be extremely complete. We'll cover everyone and everything:
From babies and toddlers, over teenagers, to adults and old age.
From remembering names and numbers, over techniques to give presentations, to memory hacks
From theories and studies, over practical exercises and tasks you will be asked to perform
