Recent research on memory[edit]

Freud found that despite a subject's effort to remember, a certain resistance kept him or her from the most painful and important memories. He eventually came to the view that certain items were completely repressed, and off-limits, to the conscious realm of the mind.

I realize that Freudian theory is passé, but recent research on memory may help provide new insight on these old ideas. Viriditas (talk) 07:00, 11 May 2010 (UTC)
