He was staring out the window with his arms crossed over his chest. I sighed to myself. Nat had the same look on his face that his father got when stubborn about something.
Turning my attention back to the road, I started listing more back to school supplies.
Babies use crayons. I want colored pencils. Surveying the parking lot, I muttered under my breath about the place being a mad house.
As Nat and I entered the store, I looked around and decided that yes, this was a mad house. I pointed off to the right side of the store and told Nat to pick out the supplies he wanted while I started finding clothes.
He grumpily nodded and walked over in that direction. Sighing to myself I grabbed a cart and headed over to the boys clothing section. I propped my purse up in the infant seat area of the cart and started rummaging through racks looking for clothing in Nathan's size.
I had just triumphantly pulled a pair of pants in the right size off of the rack when he returned. Glancing at the pile of school supplies thrown haphazardly into the cart, I spotted something else. If you get good marks first quarter we'll come back and get it then. Shaking my head sadly, I returned my attention back to the clothing racks. If this was what being a single parent consisted of, I wanted none of it. I heard Nat return, his old sneakers squeaking against the polished floor.
Glancing over, I saw him digging around in my purse. He popped a piece in his mouth and came over to where I was standing with my arms loaded with clothes. Together we picked out a few new shirts, he even laughed at one of the goofy ones I let him pick out.

The implications of these findings and further areas for research are briefly considered. Introduction Memory systems select from the thousands of stimuli in the environment those to encode permanently.
Scientists have tried to understand long-term memory LTM processes through a variety of approaches including using repeated, spaced stimuli Ebbinghaus, ; Pavlov, Pavlov and his associates focused on memory encoding of demonstrably new associations a link between the sound of a bell and food , and Ebbinghaus on memory retrieval, testing himself with word-like sequences of nonsense syllables.
For almost a century after these first studies there remained two intractable issues: first, what was the physical basis of LTM encoding, and second, how could it be triggered most effectively? Fields, , These studies show repeated stimuli spaced by periods without stimuli can lead to intracellular signaling mechanisms activating genes, initiating the production of proteins Scharf et al.
The effectiveness of spaced repetition in creating long-term memories has been experimentally demonstrated in many species in time scales of minutes Itoh et al. So, while STM creates temporary memories more rapidly, these memories quickly fade in a day or two; in contrast, LTM can last a lifetime.
In behavioral studies using rapid repetition, the length of the spaces between stimuli proved a critical variable in LTM encoding. This was examined in an ingenious study of honeybees contrasting massed and spaced learning Menzel et al.
Using spaces between stimuli of 30 sec, 3 min, and 10 min, memory retention was tested after 30 min, one day and three days. Later research demonstrated two waves of transcription are required for LTM in honeybees: an early transcription wave triggered during conditioning and another starting several hours after learning Lefer et al. These post-conditioning LTM processes also occur in humans as long-term memories are also consolidated during sleep, and this has been demonstrated in a number of ways, including studies showing task performance can be increased without further training Walker and Stickgold, Thus LTM encoding processes trigger consolidation after learning whereas STM processes do not, showing a key gating process in memory systems for selecting stimuli in the environment to encode permanently.
Drosophila memory processes have recently been visualized in vivo using Kaede, a green florescent protein, confirming earlier in vitro studies showing de novo protein synthesis after spaced training was required for normal LTM formation, and transcriptional activities of key genes were elevated after spaced but not massed training Chen et al.
Taken together, these findings robustly demonstrate the underlying mechanisms for LTP and LTM in vivo, and memory formation in specific neurons. Studies in mammalian memory processes in vitro rat hippocampus cells clarified the importance of neural impulse activity in triggering LTP first identified in studies of nervous system development Itoh et al.
Using a pattern of three stimuli separated by 10 min spaces opened voltage-sensitive calcium channels in the cell membrane, activating signaling pathways to the nucleus. The pattern of impulse firing was echoed in the patterns of calcium flashes, and these were visualized using calcium-sensitive dye and scanning laser confocal microscopy to track pulses of calcium influx following stimuli Fields, These and other related studies demonstrated there was no need for a specific signaling molecule from the membrane to the nucleus, and demonstrated the spaced pattern of action potential activity led to CREB phosphorylation and DNA synthesis of zif , a gene associated with memory Dudek and Fields, ; Bukalo and Fields, Parallel studies in the biochemistry of memory over many years have clarified LTP processes further Baudry et al.
Subsequently studies on living rats showed patterns of action potential activity have a critical role in long-term synaptic change, providing a direct link between in vitro studies of protein-dependent LTP and behavioral studies of LTM retention Shires et al. These temporal patterns in LTM encoding have recently been linked to specific molecular LTP processes in a time scale of minutes Naqib et al. Encoding memories has been the subject of fMRI studies showing memory encoding and memory retrieval processes occur in different parts of the human brain.
A seminal study of encoding complex scenes of unfamiliar information demonstrated posterior temporal-lobe structures associated with declarative memories focused in the parahippocampal cortex, whereas memory retrieval for successfully remembered information in the anterior temporal-lobe region focused in the subiculum Gabrieli et al. Yet there remain significant similarities between these two memory processes.
In retrieving memories time patterns are also important though time scales in retrieval practice are usually in weeks, months or even years. Retrieval studies by Ebbinghaus demonstrated the value of spaced practice many short sessions over massed practice a single long session in LTM.
Further studies confirmed this retrieval spacing effect, and led to attempts to implement the spacing paradigm in education. Although the spacing effect in retrieval has been demonstrated in many subjects and educational contexts to be effective, it has rarely been systematically implemented in education Dempster, ; Seabrook et al.
Despite recent careful analysis of the temporal patterns demonstrating effective recall of word pairs and other tasks Cepeda et al.
A review by the Institute of Education Sciences of spaced retrieval approaches suggested this may be because studies included few examples showing acquisition of complex bodies of structured information, or a clear educational function in critical areas of education accountability such as high-stakes testing Pashler et al. One of the core functions of education is creating long-term memories through academic courses.
These courses are frequently linked to measuring LTM through high-stakes testing, and these tests are of crucial importance to educational institutions, particularly in countries with national testing. Currently most standard teaching of courses can be characterized as massed instruction of 45 min or more lessons within courses studied over long time scales months to years.
These range from action potential firing on a scale of milliseconds to the kinetics of intercellular process in LTP for synaptic tagging and capture on the scale of minutes. There are other related processes, such as STM, that have longer time limits of up to a day or two. Although these time scales might seem far too short for LTM encoding of complex information as viewed from an educational perspective, they are common in learning in humans and other species, and essential in education.
The complexity of rapid human communication systems can be usefully considered in comparison with communication in other species. The study of language in humans and song in birds is a well-known example to demonstrate that humans are not the only species to be able to learn in early life complex communication systems. For example, both speech and birdsong acquisition require learning perception and production of complex information in time scales of seconds or less Doupe and Kuhl, Understanding complex acoustic signals, producing highly structured vocalizations with format frequencies that change rapidly 20— ms , and producing ordered strings of sound with brief silent intervals are all achieved by young children and birds.
The nightingale is capable of LTM encoding of different song types and improving learning skills with practice, moving from being tutored in songs by other nightingales to learning new songs when alone. Nightingales learn large vocal pattern repertoires, song strings and chunk information when learning. They can readily memorize and produce long song sequences after 15 repetitions when young and only five as adults.
Surprisingly the number of song types in a sequence can increase from 20 to 60 without requiring more repetitions. Like humans, nightingale songs are structured information from very short sound units creating long song sequences, with individual variations Hultsch and Todt, Where humans excel is in communication through speech—using rapid, complex systems of sounds and silence to transfer information at high speed in social environments.
Memory processes in vivo for humans on the scale of individual neurons demonstrate how complex information in brief, rapid communications can be encoded in LTM.
A study of patients with severe epilepsy showed specific memory formation in single neurons, and was able to demonstrate aspects of memory mechanisms in free recall. Three sessions of 16 five-seconds-long memorable video clips were shown to patients. Subsequently, internally generated reactivation of single neurons involved in memory acquisition of a clip occurred during free recall of that clip, demonstrating localization of some aspects of memory in specific neurons Gelbard-Sagiv et al.
Later studies of patients shown a wide range of images found different groups of neurons were encoding both abstract and basic properties of the images.
This simultaneous representation may serve to bind separate aspects of visual objects into a coherent percept. More widely, this suggests memory processes can encode in a way that structures complex information Steinmetz et al. This study reports on such a method derived directly from the research demonstrating LTM mechanisms of DNA synthesis at an intracellular level can be triggered using three stimuli spaced by two 10 min periods without stimulation Frey and Morris, ; Menzel et al.
This study reports on the development of Spaced Learning and a series of experiments using Spaced Learning carried out over a five-year period. If time patterns in education are broadly optimal, the much shorter time patterns in Spaced Learning would lead to little learning and poor test results.
The study was designed to give a preliminary answer to determine which hypothesis is supported. Materials and Methods The development of Spaced Learning over the last seven years has been in two stages: a formative stage creating the method and preliminary trials, and a second stage focused formal experiments and high-stakes testing.
Teachers in the research team approached the task by addressing whether such a technique could be created, how it could be deployed effectively, whether learning did occur and, if so, would it do so in different contexts. This training focused on the physical basis of LTM, and the reasons the time pattern used was chosen. This led to exploring rapid communication in speech, text and media. Analogies and case studies proved useful in this process.
