  • A type of long-term memory that stores facts or explicit memories. Declarative memory consists of both semantic memories for facts about the world (e.g., who the president is, what a dollar is worth) and episodic memories for facts about ourselves (e.g., where we were born, what our favorite color is). Declarative memory is distinguished from procedural memory, which refers to our stored knowledge of well-learned habits or skills. Declarative memories are often lost in people with amnesia, whereas they are still able to retain procedural memories.
