Need an research paper on how we forget. Needs to be 5 pages. Please no plagiarism. As a starting point it seems relevant to mention that memory as a phenomenon could be divided into three main types – working, long-term and short-term memory (Wickelgren, 1972). The theory of cognitive psychology assumes that the process of forgetting is characterized by a decrease of the ability to remember things and reproduce the known information. in general, it could be described as the loss of access to the previously remembered data. Both of the chosen theories – the Trace Decay and the Interference ones – have their adherents and the issue of which theory describes the process of forgetting more relevant is still debatable.
