Miller's Seven Plus or Minus Two Experiment

The Classics in the History of Psychology include a copy of George A. Miller's invited address to the Eastern Psychological Association detailing his studies on the limits of memory. The talk entitled "The Magical Number Seven, Plur or Minus Two: Some Limits on our Capacity for Processing Information" was later published in the Psychological Review.

The article might provide an ideal opportunity to not only discuss Miller's findings, but also the various ways scientists present their research findings.
