Long-Term Memory

Recall for events which occurred anywhere from a few days prior to decades ago. Also known as remote memory, long-term memory differs structurally and functionally from short-term memory.

Example: Because the patient can describe stories from his childhood in great detail, his long-term memory has clearly remained intact.
