The strength of the memory is quite undeniable as it is primarily seen in the stages at which the information it receives are processed and in the types of memory we have. The memory encodes. Information received are changed into a form compatible with the memory to ensure proper storage. An example that readily comes to mind is how you mode of dressing changes when you migrate from a warm region to a snowy region.
More so, the memory stores. The storage of the memory has to do with the nature of memory stores as there could be a short term and a long term memory storage where information is stored. This further stretches into the capacity that can be stored for the way an information is stored determines its retrieval.
Furthermore, the memory retrieves. This is what it means to get stored information out. An inability to remember something is always traced to an inability to retrieve it and this is where the differences between short term memory storage and long term memory storage becomes clear.
