Serial position effect

The serial-position effect is the tendency to be able to recall the first and last items in a list more easily than those in the middle of a list.

It has been demonstrated and confirmed many times in different experiments (starting in 1913).

Several theories have been put forward to explain the phenomenon, but none is as yet generally accepted as an explanation.
