The need for a good theoretical understanding of the processes involved in human memory and learning has been emphasised by a number of recent educational, developmental, and other applications of models of short-term memory. For example, short-term memory appears to be important in early vocabulary learning. Furthermore, everyday economic decisions also appear to be influenced in important ways by the contents of short-term memory. The present research will develop and test a new theoretical model of human memory that can model data and make predictions about human performance on a range of memory tasks. Then research also aims to forge new links between separate traditions of human and animal research on learning and memory. Both theoretical and applied implications will be explored.
