The discussion of research of memory is a popular topic of the modern world. However, the current literature on the subject matter of memory is simply overwhelming. Even with the extensive research that has been conducted, "memory" is still a highly complex and largely unknown topic area. It is difficult to discuss the matter without defining memory, its varying components, and other terms associated with it. Memory is a broad based category of research that involves acquisition, consolidation and retrieval. There are two types of memory based on the type of information coded: explicit and implicit memory. Future research will reveal a more proven mechanism for the acquisition, consolidation, and retrieval of memory.
