Proactive interference is the tendency for old memories to interfere with the retrieval of newer memories. It is forgetting that is produced by prior learning Proactive interference is a phenomenon in which earlier learned material disrupts the learning of subsequent material which occurs when the interfering material occurs before, rather than after, learning of the to-be-remembered material
