Occlusion is a term indicating that the state of something, which is normally open, is now totally closed.

  • In memory research, occlusion is the phenomenon of items associated to the same cue as the target blocking the successful retrieval of that target, through strength dependent response competition. The tip-of-the-tongue phenomenon is an example of occlusion.
  • In audiology, occlusion refers to the phenomenon that when persons with normal hearing close off the opening into the ear canal, the loudness of low pitched sounds (presented by bone conduction) increases.
