Your description should include the following:Identification and description of each step in the human memory model. As you describe these steps, use an example to illustrate the processDiscussion of factors that enhance or impede information flow in each step of the processExplanation of proactive and retroactive interference and how you might counteract their effects while studying in order to facilitate maximum retention via long-term memoryExplanation of other kinds of forgetting and a discussion of strategies that can improve memory consolidation and retrieval
