Memory: A Contribution to Experimental Psychology

“…differences in individuals and differences in content – an endless number of differences come to light…… Left to itself every mental content gradually loses its capacity for being revived, or at least suffers loss in this regard under the influence of time. Facts crammed at examination time soon vanish, if they were not sufficiently grounded by other study and later subjected to a sufficient review.”
