1. What is retrograde amnesia?
- Having impaired LTM for past and future events
- The disruption of memories from the past, especially episodic memory
- The inability as adults to remember information prior to 3 years old, due to incomplete hippocampal development
- The inability to form new, explicit long term memories, resulting from hippocampal damage

2. What is the serial position effect?
- It is easier to recall items from the end as they were last studied
- It is hardest to recall items from the middle of the list, due to primacy and recency effects
- It is easier to recall info at the start as first items are studied the most
- Items with a longer digit length are hardest to recall from a list due to the capacity of STM
3. What is proactive interference
- The tendency for previously learned recall to disrupt the recall of new information
- When concious processes such as speech interfere with the recall of information
- The tendency for new information to disrupt the recall of previously learned information
- Interference caused by external stimuli e.g/ a loud sound
4. What is the digit span of STM?
- It has no digit span
- 7+-2 digits
- 5 digits
- 9 digits
5. What happens easily to memories in STM (MSM model)
- They are easily rehearsed
- They are easily moveable from sensory to LT memory
- They are sensitive to interruption and displacement due to limited capacity, attention needed.
- They are easily transferred to LTM with attention
