Meaning and Causes of Forgetting
Consider how often you find yourself forgetting something important. You might forget the name of someone from your past, a word you want to use, or the date of your best friend's birthday. Forgetting is a common problem that can have both minor and serious consequences. Why and how do we forget information? Have you ever felt like a piece of information has just vanished from your memory? Or maybe you know that it's there, but you just can't seem to find it. The inability to retrieve a memory is one of the most common causes of forgetting.
4 Explanations for Why We Forget
However, the reason why we forget something may differ. Have you ever felt like a piece of information has just disappeared from memory? Or have you had situations where you have no memory of a certain event? Or maybe, you know certain pieces of information exist in your mind, but you just cannot seem to retrieve it. The inability to retrieve a memory is only one cause of forgetting. We may forget because the information was never in long-term memory in the first place.

3 Main Theories That Explain How We Remember
Memories can be encoded poorly or fade with time; the storage and recovery process is not flawless. Memory is not perfect. Storing a memory and retrieving it later involves both biological and psychological processes, and the relationship between the two is not fully understood. Memories are affected by how a person internalizes events through perceptions, interpretations, and emotions. This can cause a divergence between what is internalized as a memory and what actually happened in reality; it can also cause events to encode incorrectly, or not at all.
There are at least three general categories of theories of memory which suggest reasons why we forget. The theories can be classified as psychological, neurochemical, and physiological. These theories, plus descriptions of aging studies that relate to them, constitute the text of the present chapter.
By Saul McLeod , published First, the memory has disappeared - it is no longer available. Second, the memory is still stored in the memory system but, for some reason, it cannot be retrieved. These two answers summaries the main theories of forgetting developed by psychologists. The first answer is more likely to be applied to forgetting in short term memory, the second to forgetting in long term memory.
Forgetting or disremembering is the apparent loss or modification of information already encoded and stored in an individual's short or long-term memory. It is a spontaneous or gradual process in which old memories are unable to be recalled from memory storage.
Theory of General Memory Process 2. Information-processing Theories 3. Levels of Processing Theory. Several theories have been proposed by psychologists to explain how we remember or how memory works. This theory explains that the memory consists of the three cognitive processes.
