  • Default Settings

    • Types of memory: Explicit and implicit. Implicit memory is [mysterious and you can learn about it elsewhere]. Explicit memory breaks into semantic and episodic. Semantic memory is the result of book learnin’ (knowing that) and acquaintance (knowing of). [Examples.] Episodic memory, or autobiographical memory, is memory of experiences. [Examples.]
    • Consider how much more information is contained in episodic memory than in semantic. You studied hard to accumulate your propositional knowledge. But you can describe your last birthday party in vivid detail without even trying.
    • Encoding and retrieval. Relevant heuristics and biases and the story they tell about memory. Encoding for retrieval: Chunking, strangeness, emotional engagement, redundancy, association, triggers, other stuff [Decide what actually goes here.].
