Psychologists have a problem in understanding the underlying organization and mechanism of memory. After more than a century of empirical work, many of the phenomena of memory are now clear: the differences between recollection and recognition, between remembering and knowing, between unconscious influence of prior experience and performance that is accompanied by awareness of source. However, a synthesis of memory as a whole has proved elusive.
