Recall In Memory: Retrieving Information From The Past

Category: Health  

Here at Codeage, we believe that having proper mental health can helps us take the right decisions that impact our bodies. A lot of external and internal sources might affect our brains and memory.* Encoding, storage and recall are the three main processes of memory. In many ways our memories can shape who we are. They make up what we have done with our lives and who were connected to. Overall, our memories can be crucial for us human beings.*

Recall specifically is the act of retrieving events or information from the past. There are three main types of recall: free recall, cued recall and serial recall. Let’s break it down and understand the differences between the three types of recall.

Free recall

The name of this process speaks for itself. This is the process in which a person is given a list of items to remember and then is directly tested to recall them. Most people often begin free recall with the end of the list, then to the beginning and lastly to the middle of the list. You can mention these recalls in any order, hence the name “free” recall. Free recall can last a few minutes and involves spoken or written recall.

Cued recall

Cued recall differs from free recall in that a word or a cue is mentioned that is related to the information that needs to be remembered. Cued recall is the process in which information from long-term memory using aids or cues is retrieved. The cues can be anything from words, sentences, incomplete pictures, letters with a word and so on. This is when a person is a given a list of items to remember and is then tested with cues to remember the material. This is a great way to test memory.

Concentration is a key cognitive skill to operate daily and successfully.

Serial recall:

This is the process in which a person has the ability to recall events or items in which they occurred. This is an important ability because it enables us to recall items and then use them in language. The serial recall test is probably the most used short-term memory test.

Overall, we humans use memory recall in our everyday language without even realizing it. Whether it be at work or at school or even just being out with friends, our memory plays a crucial role in our everyday life.

Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being. It can affect how we think, feel, and act.*

Final Thoughts

As the years go by our brain stores memories and events and this shapes our life. However, our brain does not store memories like books, but rather like a kind of collage or a jigsaw puzzle, which involves elements stores in disparate parts linked together by associations. Therefore, when we do memory retrieval it may require us to revisit the nerve pathway of the brain.*

Here at Codeage we believe eating the right nutrients might be key to support cognitive functions and help improve memory over time.* Our diets can be linked to our brain, therefore every time we ingest some food, our brain may be called to action.*
