Stability of memory is a memory variable that determines how long a memory can last if undisturbed and if not retrieved.

Stability (S) and Retrievability (R) are part of the Two component model of long-term memory and the DSR model.

Dr Robert Bjork arrived at the concept of retrievability independently and named it storage strength.
