Facilitative Effects of Forgetting from Short-Term Memory on Growth of Long-Term Memory in Retardates
Sperber, Richard D.
Journal of Experimental Child Psychology, 21, 3, 406-416, Jun 76

Results are inconsistent with consolidation and rehearsal theories but support the prediction of the Geber, Greenfield, and House spacing model that forgetting from short-term memory facilities retardate learning.
