Taking Information to Long-term Memory The brain has lanes that act as file cabinets storing information, skills, and facts from learning experiences. The information is filtered, interpreted and stored in various parts of the brain using these lanes. It has at least five of these lanes that can be used for long-term memory; automatic, emotional, episodic, procedural and semantic. We will investigate each of these lanes and give practical techniques on how to use and integrate these lanes into your teaching to help students take information to long-term memory.
