  • Sensory memory: The sensory memory in the human body receives various information, from the sensory organs of the human being, such as the nose, ear, eye, and other members of the reception; this memory retains the information and data that it received from the outside world for very few seconds that may not exceed five seconds only Then, this information will be transferred to another stage.
  • Short-term memory: It is the memory that maintains a limited number of information received from the external environment; where it is saved for a few seconds, and this information takes one of two directions; the first is that it is forgotten, and the second is that this information is sent to the long-term memory which is the stage The last stages of information preservation.
  • Long-term memory : long-term memory, which is the work that has to work on it and to work to strengthen it, which is different from short-term memory that cannot be strengthened, or conducting special exercises for it; long-term memory can store a large number of information and for periods of time long term.
