Is that true that we always remember the end of conversation much clearer then the rest of it?

Yeah, I agree that its the first and last things I remember people telling me. Every lecture I hear is like; "Today we're going to discuss the regulation of potassium uptake by the kidney. Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah. Blah blah blah. Blah blah blah blah blah blah... 50 minutes later... blah blah blah. Okay, see you all tomorrow!"
What was that first bit again?
When i was doing A level Psychology we were told it's usually the first and final things that were remembered. Middle bits not so.
The rest of what?
This centers around the propencity of western thought to hinge on the conclusions ---- conclusions are normally made at the end of conversation -- so that is why this is the case !!

Much like people remembering the destination of their vacation and very little at all about the actual trip !
from what i have learned from plays and motion pictures as long as the beginning an end are the most important because in the middle you loose some interest, which im shore is true in general conversation or party's .
it's called recency (for the last item, being the most recent) and Primacy (for the first item) effect.
