- Sensory Memory:
Brain part most relevant: Temporal and Occipital lobes
The ability to retain impressions of sensory information after the original stimuli have concluded and the shortest-term element of memory through the five senses of sight, hearing, smell, taste and touch, which are retained accurately, but very briefly.
- Short-Term Memory:
Brain part most relevant: Pre-Frontal Cortex, Frontal, and Parietal lobes
Short-term memory is followed hand-in-hand with sensory memory and allows the ability to hold on to a piece of information temporarily in order to complete a task or remember directions, for example.
