Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

         Which store of memory does implicit and explicit memory belong to? 

    • A.

      Long term

    • B.

      Short term

    • C.

      Episodic

    • D.

      Procedural

    Correct Answer
    A. Long term
    Explanation
    Implicit and explicit memory both belong to the long-term store of memory. Implicit memory refers to the unconscious or automatic memory that is formed without conscious effort, such as procedural memory (memory for skills and procedures). Explicit memory, on the other hand, involves conscious recollection of facts and events. Both types of memory are stored in the long-term memory, which has a vast capacity and can retain information for a long period of time.

      Unconsciously

    • B.

    • C.

      Sub consciously

    • D.

      Automatically

    Correct Answer
    B. Consciously
    Explanation
    Explicit memory refers to the conscious recollection of information, facts, and events. Therefore, it makes sense that explicit memory would be retrieved consciously. This means that individuals actively and intentionally recall information from their memory when trying to retrieve explicit memories. Unlike unconscious or automatic processes, conscious retrieval of explicit memory involves deliberate effort and awareness.

      Unconsciously

    Correct Answer
    D. Unconsciously
    Explanation
    Implicit memory refers to the type of memory that is unconsciously formed and retrieved without conscious awareness. It is typically retrieved automatically and effortlessly, without any deliberate effort or intention. This type of memory is often accessed through implicit cues or triggers that activate the stored information without conscious intention or awareness. Therefore, the correct answer is "unconsciously" because implicit memories are retrieved without conscious awareness or effort.

    • D.

      Episodic and procedural

    Correct Answer
    B. Procedural and emotion
    Explanation
    Implicit memory is divided into two types: procedural and emotion. Procedural memory refers to the ability to remember and perform tasks or skills without conscious awareness, such as riding a bike or typing. Emotion memory, on the other hand, involves the unconscious recall of emotional experiences and associated feelings. These two divisions of implicit memory highlight different aspects of memory processing and retrieval, with procedural memory focusing on motor skills and emotion memory focusing on the encoding and retrieval of emotional experiences.

    • A.

      Episodic and semantic

    • B.

      Procedural and emotion

    • C.

      Emotion and semantic

    • D.

      Episodic and procedural

    Correct Answer
    A. Episodic and semantic
    Explanation
    Explicit memory is divided into episodic and semantic memory. Episodic memory refers to the ability to recall specific events and experiences, such as remembering what you had for breakfast this morning. Semantic memory, on the other hand, involves the recall of general knowledge and facts, such as knowing that Paris is the capital of France. These two types of memory are distinct but work together to form our explicit memory, which is the conscious recollection of information.
