Why and When We Forget

Lecture no. 4 from the course: Scientific Secrets for a Powerful Memory

Why and When We Forget

Taught by Professor Peter M. Vishton | 29 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Professional Development Courses

Forgetting happens to the best of us—but it can be mitigated through the use of several key techniques. Among the topics you’ll investigate are the “Ebbinghaus forgetting function,” which offers insights into the relationship between time, amount of studying, and the likelihood of memory recall; the most effective way to remember a new set of information (hint: it doesn’t involve cramming); and how to access that pesky piece of information that’s “on the tip of your tongue.”
