Proactive Interference and Forgetting

by Vinishaa Ankala


Submitted : Spring 2011

We determine the proactive interference for a given time T. That is, for a given time T in minutes we can calculate the amount of information that can be forgotten by a person due to previously learned material. In this, we solve for the unknown forgetting information P by equating it to the time taken to forget. We equate numerical equations to find out the unknown constants. By doing so, we can find out the exact equation and also the amount of forgetting information due to proactive interference.
