Assessment and remediation of learning and memory

The different ways we learn and remember and the many factors (eg stress, fatigue, motivation) that enhance and detract from effective learning and memory will be presented. The different types of memory e.g working, immediate, delayed, procedural, prospective and semantic will be discussed in relation to assessment and remediation.
