Implicit or Nondeclarative Memory refers to memories that are reflected in the way we act more than in what we consciously know. They are formed by systems that engage in domain-specific learning. Refer to Explicit Memory for additional information. (LeDoux, Joseph. Synaptic Self, How Our Brains Become Who We Are. p 97-98. NY: Penguin Books, 2002.)

Implicit memory involves brain portions that do not require conscious processing either during encoding or retrieval. Somatosensory (bodily) memory is likely a form of implicit memory. (Siegel, Daniel J. The Developing Mind. p 28-38. NY: The Guilford Press, 1999.)

Implicit memory or knowledge (or tacit knowledge) is the type of knowledge wherein you can successfully ride a bicycle, for example, although you are unable to explain to someone else exactly how you are able to do so. (Restak, Richard, MD. The Naked Brain. p 23-24. NY: Three Rivers Press, 2006.)
