Serial Position Effect

When asked to recall a list of items in any order, items in the middle of the list tend to be remembered the least.

Placing important information at the beginning or end of a pitch can shape what your audience remembers.

People have the tendency to remember the first and last items in a series best, and the middle items worst.
