We propose a model for memory-based movement of an individual. The dynamics are modeled by a stochastic differential equation, coupled with an eikonal equation, whose potential depends on the individual's memory and perception. Under a simple periodic environment, we discover that both long and short-term memory with appropriate time scales are essential for producing expected periodic migrations.
