Effects of Length of Retention Interval on Proactive Interference in Short-Term Visual Memory
Meudell, Peter R.
Journal of Experimental Psychology: Human Learning and Memory, 3, 3, 264-69, May 77
These experiments show two things: (a) In visual memory, long-term interference on a current item from items previously stored only seems to occur when the current item's retention interval is relatively long, and (b) the visual code appears to decay rapidly, reaching asymptote within 3 seconds of input in the presence of an interpolated task.
