Implicit learning and memory affects how each of us acts, reacts

Implicit learning underlies the unconscious acquisition of a wide range of novel sequential patterns we use every day such as language and motor skills.

Repeated experience (i.e., practice) with such patterns allows us to establish strong representations in long-term memory, which, in turn, leads to fast, automatic and typically faithful retrieval and use of these patterns.

Children and adults with language impairment and/or those with motor difficulties due to injury can pose interesting treatment challenges to clinicians.
