Recalling different ideas, concepts or even simple lists can be challenging for all individuals. We have all experienced going somewhere to get something we wanted or needed but as soon as we get to that place, we forget why we are there. This concept happens to everyone and can be referred to as short term memory loss or STML. Short-term memory can be easily explained as the brain’s way to temporarily remember information. This information is usually stored for about 15 to 30 seconds at a time. On the other hand, long term memory takes the short term memory information and creates more established memories. With this, the information is stored for days, months, years, or even a whole lifetime.
