Cleanup : See also section is very long - a memory related subjects template may be better
Expand : *Memory techniques (this is going to Memory technique as i've got a lot of info on it) (e.g. remembering binary numbers, association with other senses), memory enhancing products (books, tapes etc)
Competitions and famous individuals, extraordinary feats
Rates of memory loss (a graph would be good for this)
The effect of literacy on memory, limitations of memory
Expand disorders section e.g. effects of drugs, more on aging and Alzheimer's, other disorders
Selective memory (the disorder, the deceptive form, and the subconscious form).
Verify : There are currently no footnotes in the article at all, this needs much work

Other animals (all of them, would I say) obviously have a memory. I've replaced it with "a function of the brain" (since mind may not apply to all animals, while memory does -- in my opinion). Some parts of the article seem to be specific to humans though, feel free to revert, change, etc. if you aren't pleased with my edit. → SeeSchloß 16:05, 15 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Good call. There's probably a need for a section on memory in non-human animals. Some experts (e.g., Tulving) are very clear that some types of memory, such as episodic (autobiographical) memory, are only found in humans. There's some quite nice work by Nicola Clayton  that suggests that animals may in fact be capable of, at the very least, episodic-like memory. It's not really my area, but I do some research in memory, and this article could contain much much more information in all sorts of ways. However, memory is such a work-in-progress on many levels, that it would be quite easy to digress beyond what wikipedia probably needs... Limegreen 05:52, 17 Jun 2005 (UTC)
Suggestion: Collective and cultural memory should be discussed, or the picture at the beginning of the article should be changed. The "Overview of the forms and functions of memory" image at the beginning of this article suggests that two major forms of memory are collective or cultural, but neither of those forms/functions is currently discussed in the article. If the image is representative of the topic, then probably there should be a discussion of these forms of memory. ParticipantObserver (talk) 18:35, 26 December 2018 (UTC)
