Memory is the process of retaining, storing and recalling of the life experiences and informations.Knowledge is required for learning and memory is required for the knowledge to work when required. There are two types of memory one is short term which for short duration of time-a millisecond to few minutes and a long term memory which stays for a longer durations and is permanent in nature. Short term memory can become long term memory when attention is laid on it and repetition is done. For different things two other types of memory are used like declarative memory which is used to remember facts and numbers while procedural memory is used to remember procedures like how to ride a bicycle, drive a car etc.
