Important information and extensive rehearsal will transfer information into long term memory ( LTM ) which has unlimited capacity and has a limitless duration. LTM encodes semantically which means that the information is given a meaning. Information can be retrieved from LTM to be used in STM when needed and can be forgotten through decay or displacement. A strength of this model is that it is based on real people rather than experiments, it shows ecological validity and can be applied to everyday life. For example, H.M. had brain surgery to cure severe epilepsy but this resulted in him being unable to transfer information from STM to LTM so that he could not form long term memories, supporting the concept that there are separate stores.

The older players who are retired have many problems with dementia and many other problems that take a toll on their families. Laurie Navon tell her struggle with her 53 year old boyfriend Jim McMahon, a former NFL quarterback for the Chicago Bears who suffered many concussions in his career, in an interview with Sports Illustrated.
Flowers for Algernon Reflection: The novel Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes follows the story of a mentally challenged man named Charlie Gordon, who receives an experimental treatment to increase his intelligence. The treatment results in Charlie reaching an unheard of level intelligence in a matter of months, however the treatment is short lived. Soon after reaching the top Charlie’s intelligence rapidly plummets down to a state of mental retardation once again. The novel exhibits several moral issues when it comes to the treatment, particularly the experimental treatment, of mentally disabled individuals. Flowers for Algernon was published in the late 1960’s when few treatments for mental deficiencies were available, and for many years prior to that the mentally handicapped were merely institutionalized and removed from the rest of society, as there was no solution to integrate these people into “normal” society.
