The period of time that passes between the Acquisition and the Retrieval of the memory.
Knowledge is recalled in response to a new event.
Knowledge is gained through experiencing an event

Short-Term Memory
Short -Term Memory determines what information will be stored temporarily, and what information will transgress into the Long-Term Memory.
While driving, you see the lost cat, and recall the poster.

Consistency Bias is when one interprets their past in a way that is consistent with how they are now.
When you were younger, you thought that bringing your action figure to school made you cool , bu that is no longer the case.
Decay theory - Memory traces begin to fade and disappear if the information is not retrieved and rehearsed.
Interference theory - Suggests that some memories compete and interfere with other memories.
Failure to store - Encoding failures sometimes prevent information from entering long-term memory.
