Memory is the building block of intelligence, Without a memory of the past, we cannot operate in the present or think about the future. Depends on the ability to learn and retain in short term memory (STM) through acoustic repetition, visual, and semantic memory.
Making new memory from STM to long term memory (LTM) is by genetic coding through stages of memory, encoding , storage, and retrieval.
Encoding system in LTM appears to be semantic coding (by meaning/logic) and visual.
LTM involve changes in protein synthesis, gene regulation, and in many cases, structural modifications.
LTM involves changes in the structure of neurons including growth of new processes and synapses in the different parts of the brain.
Assisted computerized cognitive brain training (CCBT) is capable of the repetitive brain stimulation of visual, auditory, semantic, and procedural memory with limitations.
