Abstract: Many theories have been formulated to explain memory from the functional viewpoint. It has frequently been fractionated into short-term and long-term components (Waugh and Norman, 1965; Atkinson and Shiffrin, 1968) although there is disagreement about whether apparent differences between the two components reflect the existence of two different storage systems or a single general memory system with different types of encoding (Listcr, 1985). It is clear that, despite the successes obtained, the multi-store approach can no longer be regarded as an adequate theoretical conceptualisation of the architecture of the memory system (Eysenck, 1988). However, this oversimplification can provide a useful approach for describing the amnesic effects of benzodiazepines.
