  1. long-term memory In order for material to be transferred to LTM, it must be related to things one already knows. Although there are no time or capacity limitations to LTM, there is no guarantee that one will always be able to use the information that is encoded in it.—Judith Stevens-Long and Nancy J. Cobb, Adolescence and Early Adulthood, 1983
