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… Expand

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. Expand
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 secondaryExpand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand

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' andExpand

Abstract Normal adults differ in a fairly general immediate serial recall ability which is commonly assessed on individual IQ tests. Two experiments tested the role of rehearsal, grouping, andExpand
Trait-Task interaction in intra- and intermodal matching of auditory and visual trigrams☆
Abstract Relations among short-term auditory memory, short-term visual memory, vocabulary knowledge, and intra- and intermodal matching of trigrams were examined with multiple-regression procedures.Expand


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. Expand
The results indicated that all subjects found it more difficult to handle visually, as opposed to aurally, presented information, and the decline in visual retention was found to increase with age, this being most noticeable after the age of 60 years. Expand
