9. What are the three reasons for failing to remember discussed in the video? Briefly explain each. We fail to encode which is when we don’t really notice something, retrieve it which is like not being able to find the information, or storage decay which is just naturally forgetting something (Green, H. 2014, May 12). 10. Explain the difference between proactive and retroactive interference . Give an example of each. Proactive is when old information gets in the way of learning new information. Example: I’m trying to forget an old version of a song so I can learn the new upbeat version. Retroactive is when new information gets in the way of remembering old information. Example: I’m trying to study for my anatomy classes midterm coming up but all I can remember is the recent chapter that will not be in the midterm (Green, H. 2014, May 12).
