Basic and applied research on memory should and can inform each other to their mutual benefit much in the same way that laboratory and nonlaboratory studies can (see Bahrick, 1991; Tulving, 1991). Nonetheless, it is a challenge to integrate the wide-ranging contents of the presentations of this conference and to formulate implications for memory theory. Each paper contributed some interesting and unique findings and conceptual points, not all of which can be assimilated. With respect to memory theory, there were a number of themes that cut across several to most of the presentations. We begin with a consideration of those themes.
