One German psychologist conducted experiments to study the human memory, and included some methods for the amount of information we can remember.
He made few lists that contained words without meaning, and included them to evaluate the learning of free meaning. He claimed that we learn new information with our previous knowledge, therefore he wanted to experiment with words that didn’t have any meaning.
He tested the rate at which we start forgetting the new information. He noticed that he forgot a lot of information in 20 minutes, and more than half of it in the next hour.
He forgot 2/3 of the information that same day, but he remembered the rest. If he retains the information for the following day, it means it is stored in the memory.
He also concluded that people learn better and easier when the information is repeated more times which is spaced out over a longer period.
