Two groups were given visual and auditory forma of a digit memory test in a counterbalanced order (auditory-visual group and visualauditory group) under conditions of immediate and 10-second delayed recall. Two control groups were given exclusively either the visual or auditory test. Auditory memory was better than visual for immediate recall; the reverse was true for delayed recall, the interaction being significant beyond p < .001. The correlations between individual differences in auditory…

Gender Preference for Auditory Versus Visual Routes for Memorization.

It may be concluded that in men visual sense and in women auditory sense are more effectual for the formation of memory.

Trait-Task Interaction in Matching Visual and Auditory Stimuli.

ABSTRACT This study was designed to examine the effects of auditory memory, visual memory, and vocabulary knowledge on intramodal and intermodal delayed matching-to-sample tasks. A secondary

Achilles’ Ear? Inferior Human Short-Term and Recognition Memory in the Auditory Modality

A short-term memory paradigm was used to test human subjects’ retention of simple auditory, visual, and tactile stimuli that were carefully equated in terms of discriminability, stimulus exposure time, and temporal dynamics, which suggest a difference in the degree to which auditory,Visual and tactile memory are mediated by the perirhinal and entorhinal cortices.

The role of auditory features in memory span for words.

The data provide evidence for a partial retention of auditory features of stimulus words in short-term memory tasks and are taken to support attribute rather than unit models of short- term memory.

Effects of Visual and Auditory Short-Term Memory Tasks on the Spatiotemporal Dynamics and Variability of Postural Sway

The authors measured postural sway while participants stood on a rigid or a compliant surface, with their eyes open or closed, and while they did or did not perform a short-term memory task.

Individual Differences in Learning and Remembering Music: Auditory versus Visual Presentation

We examined the effects of presentation modality and learning style preference on people's ability to learn and remember unfamiliar melodies and sentences. In Experiment 1, we gauged musicians' and

A Model for Visual Memory Tasks1

A model for visual recall tasks was presented in terms of visual information storage, scanning, rehearsal, and auditory information storage and the main implication of the model for human factors is the importance of the auditory coding in visual tasks.
