When Ebbinghaus published the results of his experimental investigations of memory in 1885 his introductory chapter pointed out the "bare knowledge of the existence of memory and its effects." Historically in studies of memory our information came in large measure from the observation of the extreme and especially striking cases.The difficulties of scientific studies and the indefinite unspecialised knowledge of the nature of memory vas almost prohibitive in undertaking new investigations.
