We published our ideas with Drs Janusz Murakowski and Edward Gorzelanczyk in 1995. Murakowski perfected the mathematical proof. Gorzelanczyk fleshed out the molecular model. We have not heard much enthusiasm or feedback from the scientific community. The idea of the two components of memory is like wine, the older it gets, the better it tastes. We keep wondering when it will receive a wider recognition.

The existence of two independent components of long-term memory has been demonstrated by the authors. The evidence has been derived from the authors' findings related to the optimum spacing of repetitions in paired-associate learning. The two components are sufficient to explain the optimum spacing of repetitions as well as the spacing effect. Although the molecular counterparts of the two components of memory are not known, the authors provide a collection of guidelines that might facilitate identification of such counterparts
