Memory is the process of storing and recalling information. Storage can be either short-term or long-term. Short-term memory lasts for a few minutes, while long-term memory can last for many years.

Recall occurs when we remember information that we have previously stored in our memory. There are various techniques that can be used to improve recall, such as mnemonic devices, chunking and spreading out learning over time. Memory is an important cognitive function that allows us to learn and form new memories, and plays a crucial role in our everyday lives.
