Memory is vital to experiences and related to limbic systems , it is the retention of information over time for the purpose of influencing future action. [1] If we could not remember past events, we could not learn or develop language, relationships, nor personal identity (Eysenck, 2012).

Three types of sensory memories exist. Iconic memory is a fast decaying store of visual information; a type of sensory memory that briefly stores an image which has been perceived for a small duration. Echoic memory is a fast decaying store of auditory information, another type of sensory memory that briefly stores sounds that have been perceived for short durations. [3] Haptic memory is a type of sensory memory that represents a database for touch stimuli.

Short-term memory is believed to rely mostly on an acoustic code for storing information, and to a lesser extent a visual code. Conrad (1964) [6] found that test subjects had more difficulty recalling collections of letters that were acoustically similar (e.g. E, P, D). Confusion with recalling acoustically similar letters rather than visually similar letters implies that the letters were encoded acoustically. Conrad's (1964) study, however, deals with the encoding of written text; thus, while memory of written language may rely on acoustic components, generalisations to all forms of memory cannot be made.

What if you could forget bad memories simply by popping a pill ? We're not there yet, but new findings reported by researchers at MIT suggest that we've moved one step closer.

The scientists say they have identified a gene that plays a critical role in "memory extinction," the process by which old memories are replaced by new ones. If a way can be found to amplify the activity of this gene, called Tet1 , it could lead to new treatments for addiction and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), according to the researchers.

For the study, the researchers compared learning behavior of mice with the Tet1 gene to similar mice in whom the gene was knocked out. Both groups were trained to fear a particular cage when given a mild electric shock each time they were placed inside.

The "knockout" mice learned to associate the cage with the shock, just like the normal mice. But when the researchers put the mice back in the same cage without delivering the shock, the two groups behaved differently.
