The importance of retroactive inhibition as one of the major theoretical conditions of forgetting makes experimentation on it particularly important at this time. Retroactive inhibition may be defined as the decrement in an originally learned act attributable to the learning of a second act between the time of the original learning and its recall. More rigidly than this, retroactive inhibition may be defined in terms of the experimental operations, the experimental design employed in the production of it.
