A human could learn over a normal life span. - As you get older, it is harder to remember things. This is not because long term memory is full, other things are the problem like retrieval. - We have found no limitations on human memory - No amount of time that something can be stored in long term memory People will remember events over and over again yet each time it is remembered, they do not recall remembering it in quite a long time.
