1. A number of qualitatively distinct situations produce interference. The storage of new experiences can interfere with retrieving older ones (retroactive interference), but older memories can also impede retrieval of newer ones (proactive interference). For example, calling new boyfriend/girlfriend by your ex’s name. Interference can also occur when too many memories are competing (e.g., multiple choice exams). Describe several situations in which interference occurred either to you or someone you know. How were these issues resolved? Incorporate theory and empirical evidence in your explanations. Papers should be approximately 3 pages (typed, double-spaced), have a title page and a references page and adhere to basic APA format (see guide posted on Blackboard). A minimum of 2 empirical sources must be included. There is a 10% grade reduction per day (not class period) for late papers.
