    What is the difference between short-term memory and long-term memory?

    The mind and memory has to take in endless information which needs different sections to protect the older information, sadly illness can interrupt these sections causing disruptions, sometimes memory loss or confusion, as in other section after just an hour the memory is almost half of the information taken in so it very unstable.

    Psychology -> The relationship between and properties of sensory memory, short-term memory and long term memory Relationship between and properties of sensory memory, short-term memory and long term memory DURATION CAPACITY PROPERTIES SENSORY MEMORY (SM) - iconic: 0.3 of a second - echoic: 3-4 seconds - large - the initial phase of memory where information registers briefly on the sensory organs - visual sensory memory - auditory sensory memory - if information is attended to it is transferred to STM SHORT-TERM MEMORY (STM) - less than or equal to 30 seconds - holds 7 plus or minus 2 bits of information - can increase capacity by chunking, which is the grouping together of bits of information to form a chunk - information is encoded as it enters STM - holds information that you are consciously processing at the time - also referred to as 'working memory' as it is where mental manipulation takes place - information may be coming from sensory memory or being retrieved from LTM - if information is not attended to it is lost or displaced LONG-TERM MEMORY (LTM) - relatively permanent - limitless - the transfer of information from STM to LTM involves a period of time for consolidation in order for it to be permanently stored.Consolidation theory suggests that information can be altered or lost during this consolidation phase - information is stored according to meaning and categories known as the semantic network theory Stored information is highly organised into four types of LTM As the above table indicates, information in long-term memory appears to be stored in different locations. Our memory is distributed and fragmented rather than localised and unitary.

    So information sensed can be lost at any stage between SM,STM AND LTM.

    what happens such that an information can be altered?

    SM 3-4 seconds, STM 30 seconds or less, LTM relatively permanent. Is it the STM that is at fault when I walk from one room to another and have forgot what I am doing ? Also, what part of memory is affected by alzheimers disease ?
