Short-term memory loss

Short-term memory is the temporary recall of information being processed at any one particular time. For example, in order to understand this sentence the beginning of the sentence needs to be held in your mind while the rest is read – this is the exact kind of task carried out by your short term memory! It is said usually people should be able to hold 7 pieces of information in their short-term memory at any one time.
