The Effect of Context on Memory

About This Video

Everything we do occurs in a particular context. How does this context influence our memory of events and facts that we want to recall? According to Dr. Bjork, variability in study context will give a learner more potential retrieval cues to remember information. In addition, recreating a situation similar to the one a particular memory was formed in will aid memory retrieval for some memories - especially over long periods of time.
