How our memories work

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Marion Tsnarov

Memory is the area of the mind through which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. Memory is vital to experiences as it is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action. If we could not remember past events, we could not learn or develop language, relationships, nor personal identity. Memory is often understood as an informational processing system with explicit and implicit functioning that is made up of a sensory processor, short-term (or working) memory, and long-term memory. This module looks at how memory works in our brain and how we interpret the messages it retrieves for us.

We will explore

  • What are inborn and learned responses?
  • How to learn to adapt
  • What is motivation?
  • Looking at emotions and feelings
  • What is conditioning?


We are continously working to improve and update our material to ensure it is meeting the needs of students and teachers alike.

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Key vocabulary worksheet
  • Observation of thoughts worksheet
  • Teacher assessment

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
