PROGRESSION-REGRESSION HYPOTHESIS

This hypothesis makes the simple conjecture that learning leads to the utilization of more complex control strategies (progress) while stress or forgetting leads to the adoption of simpler control strategies (regress)

PROGRESSION-REGRESSION HYPOTHESIS: "After forgetting the dates he was supposed to remember, Zane chose a simpler strategy leading to regression."
