In the 19th century, a German psychologist named Hermann Ebbinghaus, dedicated to studying memory, discovered what is now known as the forgetting curve, according to which just a few hours after learning something new, we forget a significant percentage. And finally, a few days later we ended up forgetting everything.
Ebbinghaus experimented with his own ability to remember some new information and recall it after different lengths of time. His experiences and results revealed a number of key aspects of memory:
1)Memories weaken over time.
2)The biggest drop in retention happens soon after learning.
3)It's easier to remember things that have meaning.
4)The way something is presented affects learning.
5)How you feel affects how well you remember.
