MULTIPLE TRACE HYPOTHESIS

is the theory that by presenting a stimulus multiple times, each time a new record is created opposed to simply updating a current one.

MULTIPLE TRACE HYPOTHESIS: "According to the multiple trace hypothesis, presenting a stimulus multiple times will result in new records of that stimulus opposed to updating previous records of that stimulus."
