Abstract:

The purpose of this project is to investigate experimentally how new information is integrated into long term memory. One question has to do with how the content and organization of old memories affects how the new input is processed, assimilated, and altered. The second question focusses upon the old memory. How does it get altered as the result of having taken in new information. The authors are especially interested in those conditions that lead to little or no change in existing memory structures as opposed to those conditions that result in more or less permanent revision of memory. This last condition, is a situation in which learning or growth of knowledge has taken place.
