Implicit Memory

An implicit memory is one of two types of long-term human memory. These types of memories are formed and used unconsciously and they affect both our thought and behaviors. The primary form of implicit memories are procedural memories which are important for performing repetitive everyday tasks without the need for conscious thought (riding a bike, driving a car, etc.) The opposite of implicit memory is explicit or declarative memory, which refers to the conscious recollection of factual information, previous experiences, and concepts such as remembering school materials for a test.
