|The Simple English Wiktionary has a definition for: memory.|
Memory is the part of the mind that keeps the things that you can remember. It is the mind's ability to store information to use later. It is studied in a special science called "cognitive psychology". There are three main types of memory:
- Sensory memory, in which sensations are first noticed, like smelling a flower.
- Short-term memory, the ability to keep information in mind for a short time, like remembering a phone number long enough to find a piece of paper.
- Long-term memory, the ability to remember things long after they happen, like remembering a holiday you had last year.
