The formation of flashbulb memories
A causal analysis of secondary variables showed that the formation of FB memories was primarily associated with the level of importance attached to the event and level of affective response to the news.

The findings demonstrate a shift from remembering to knowing, dependent upon level attained, type of course, and retention interval, and suggest an underlying shift in knowledge representation from episodic to semantic memory.

Comparisons of human and ideal performance in a variety of tasks reveal that many aspects of the variation in spatial vision with eccentricity can be understood from an analysis of the discrimination information available at the retinal ganglion cells.
Attentional shifts towards an expected visual target alter the level of alpha-band oscillatory activity in the human calcarine cortex.
Human peripheral spatial resolution for achromatic and chromatic stimuli: limits imposed by optical and retinal factors.
It is concluded that, for stimuli of either achromatic or chromatic contrast, peripheral spatial resolution is limited by post‐receptoral mechanisms, and chromatic acuity declines more steeply than luminance acuity with eccentricity suggesting that there are additional post‐ receptoral limitations on colour resolution in the periphery.
Spatial summation properties of directionally selective mechanisms in human vision.
To measure psychophysically the receptive-field size of motion units in human vision, length and width spatial summation functions were measured for drifting (8-Hz) sinusoidal gratings of spatial frequencies 0.1, 1.0, and 10.0 cycles per degree with two threshold criteria: direction discrimination and simple detection.
Receptive field size of human motion detection units
Attentional modulation of oscillatory activity in human visual cortex
Recollections of true and false autobiographical memories.
Two diarists recorded true and false events and thoughts over a period of 5 months. In recognition tests taken 7 months later, they discriminated between true and false diary entries and judged their…
