    Interesting. Shows why many persons may remember the beginning of a lecturer and the end but will have some trouble remembering the middle parts of the lecture.

    The serial position effect breaks thoughts into three sections, the beginning takes a priority and gets stored within LTM long term memory, the middle doesn't seem to matter by the time you put the end section into STM short term memory, middle section has now gone been displaced.

    Psychology -> Memory: the serial position effect The serial position effect The serial position effect refers to the tendency for us to remember items at the beginning of a list (the primacy effect) and those at the end of a list (the recency effect). Information at the beginning has been rehearsed more and therefore is transferred into LTM, and material at the end is still in STM. The items in the middle have most likely been displaced.
