what is the difference between implicit vs. explicit memory
Explicit memory is a memory that can be intentionally and consciously recalled. Implicit memory is an experiential or functional form of memory that cannot be consciously recalled. This is your memory of how to ride a bike or how to balance.
Explicit memory is sometimes referred to as declarative memory. It’s memory for facts and details, and can be stated. Explicit memory is processed through the hippocampus. An example would be the Declaration of Independence was signed on July 4, 1776.
Implicit memory is sometimes referred to as non-declarative or procedural memory. It is processed through the cerebellum. An example would be knowing how to ride a bike.
