Retrieval induced forgetting

About This Video

When retrieving information from memory the retrieved memory will be strengthened. However, competing memories will be less accessible afterwards. This implies that remembering doesn't only produce positive effects for the remembered facts or events, but it might also lead to forgetting of other, related things in memory.
