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.
