In many situations we need to consciously recall information we have received. For example, if I asked someone where they went for their summer holidays last year, and they could tell me, they would be using explicit memory as they could consciously recall the information wanted. If, on the other hand, asked someone when and where they learned to ride a bicycle, and the steps by which they gained expertise, they would probably find this difficult. They might demonstrate how to ride a bicycle without much trouble, that is they would have implicit memory of this skill, they would remember how to do it even if they were unable to explain it with any great ease or remember when and how they learned the skill. Like procedural memory, implicit memory is usually intact or relatively intact in people with organic memory impairment.
