Many of the actions we take every day are conducted without a whole lot of thought. Driving to work, making a call on your cell, or even eating, all are forms of procedural memory. These are specific motor tasks that are done so frequently they become almost automatic.
These skills can not only be done subconsciously, but also highly efficiently. This is called muscle memory — a term you’ve probably heard. Muscle memory isn’t so much about your muscles as it has to do with the connection between motor and memory systems.
