Auditory and Visual Memory

Our memory acts as a storage unit for all of the information that we have recieved while experiencing daily life. Two of the most essential and dynamic forms of recieving information are through auditory and visual stimuli. Intelligence is a memory-based process. The abillity to manipulate the information that you have stored in memory gives you one of the most essential skills to learn.


Auditory memory involves a four step process: being able to take in information that is presented orally, to process that information, store it in one’s mind and then recall what one has heard. Basically, it involves the skills of attending, listening, processing, storing, and recalling. Visual memory is a part of memory that applies to information we have retrieved using visual experience. We are able to place in memory information that resembles objects, places, animals or people in sort of a mental image.
