Figure 1

Interference model of forgetting. 1-D. Each item is represented as a thin vertical bar. The height of the bar corresponds to the valence of an item. The top row bars above the black line represent items that are stored in memory just before the acquisition of a new item, shown on the right (Sample). All the items that have smaller valence (bar height) than the new item are discarded from memory (crossed by red bar), and the new item is added. Bottom row represents the memory content after the new memory is acquired. 2-D. Same as 1-D, but each memory item has two valences represented by the width and height of a rectangular. In this case, all the items that have both valences smaller than the corresponding valences of the new item are discarded
