Proactive Interference

Proactive interference occurs when old information stored in long-term memory interferes with the learning of new information. This usually occurs when the new information is similar to the old information. An everyday example of proactive interference is when you try to remember a new mobile phone number and your memory for your old number disrupts your attempts to remember this new information.
