WHAT DOES MEMORIES MEAN IN ENGLISH?

memories

Memory

In psychology, memory is the process in which information is encoded, stored, and retrieved. Encoding allows information that is from the outside world to reach our senses in the forms of chemical and physical stimuli. In this first stage we must change the information so that we may put the memory into the encoding process. Storage is the second memory stage or process. This entails that we maintain information over periods of time. Finally the third process is the retrieval of information that we have stored. We must locate it and return it to our consciousness. Some retrieval attempts may be effortless due to the type of information. From an information processing perspective there are three main stages in the formation and retrieval of memory: ▪ Encoding or registration: receiving, processing and combining of received information ▪ Storage: creation of a permanent record of the encoded information ▪ Retrieval, recall or recollection: calling back the stored information in response to some cue for use in a process or activity The loss of memory is described as forgetfulness or, as a medical disorder, amnesia.

Chris Van Allsburg
I have very positive memories of reading biographies of unusual Americans as a child.
2
Scott Anderson
Even if he was happier in Asia than he'd been in Latin America, the wanderlust still worked on my father's insides like a disease.

4
Rosecrans Baldwin
My grandmother died from Alzheimer's, and it was a big shock. For the families left behind, it is not an easy closure. It's not a gradual fading. The person is losing so much of their humanity as they're dying. Losing your memories, you lose so much of who you are as a person.
5
J. G. Ballard
Memories have huge staying power, but like dreams, they thrive in the dark, surviving for decades in the deep waters of our minds like shipwrecks on the sea bed.

8
Theodore Bikel
By showing hunger, deprivation, starvation and brutality, as well as endurance and nobility, documentaries inform, prod our memories, even stir us to action. Such films do battle for our very soul.
9
Peter Bondra
Obviously, I have a lot of memories here... but at the same time I'm going to put all my energies into moving forward and doing my best for the Thrashers.
10
