2.1 Memory is better for words at the beginning of the list and at the end of the list than for words in the middle
2.2 Primacy
2.2.1 More likely to remember words presented at the beginning of a sequence and are transferred into LTM

2.3.1 More likely to remember words presented at the end of a sequence and are still in STM
3 Double dissociation
