I will survey results about the scaling behaviour of random walks and diffusions with long memory due to some physically natural interactions, like local drifting due to random environment or path-wise self-interactions. I will start my lectures by presenting some motivating examples. Then, during the first lecture I will present some technical tools like variational bounds and martingale approximations. In the second lecture I will return to the concrete examples, proving diffusive or super-diffusive asymptotics for various physically reasonable models of random motion. Regarding techniques: a mixture of probabilistic and (functional) analytic ideas will be explored. The lectures will be accessible for the general mathematically educated audience.
