Upon being stimulated, we have an experience called primary memory. The concept of primary memory is derived from the american psychologist william.

The arrow labelled as (cid:862)rehearsal(cid:863) refers to the fact that primary memory are quickly forgotten unless they are repeated. Primary memory belongs to the present while secondary memory belongs to the past.
