Lifetime of Human Visual Sensory Memory : Properties and Neural Substrate

  title={Lifetime of Human Visual Sensory Memory : Properties and Neural Substrate},
  author={Wei Yang},
The classic partial-report procedure was modified to optimize the condition to measure the transient decay of visual sensory memory (VSM, also known as iconic memory). A model was developed to isolate the VSM and visual working memory (VWM) underlying the partial-report performance. The decay of VSM in each subject was well characterized by a single exponential function, thus a lifetime could be defined for VSM decay in individual subjects. It was found that intensive practice with… CONTINUE READING
