Explicit Use Of Memory

Explicit Use Of Memory refers to conscious efforts to remember specific information. A major example of this is memorizing information for use in school tests or at work. We all remember from elementary school having to memorize the alphabet and the multiplication tables and quite a bit of other information. We didn't necessarily understand at the time why this was important and necessary, but later on we understood the importance of the information memorized when we could apply it to other tasks.
