Memory for the search path: Evidence for a high-capacity representation of search history

  title={Memory for the search path: Evidence for a high-capacity representation of search history},
  author={Christopher Dickinson and Gregory J. Zelinsky},
  journal={Vision Research},
Using a gaze-contingent paradigm, we directly measured observers' memory capacity for fixated distractor locations during search. After approximately half of the search objects had been fixated, they were masked and a spatial probe appeared at either a previously fixated location or a non-fixated location; observers then rated their confidence that the target had appeared at the probed location. Observers were able to differentiate the 12 most recently fixated distractor locations from non… CONTINUE READING
