We conducted a human analog study of the Morris Water Maze, with individuals indicating a remembered location in a 3 m diameter arena over different intervals of time and with different memory loads. The primary focus of the study was to test a theory of how varying cue location and number of cues affects memory for spatial location. As expected, memory performance as measured by proximity to the actual location was negatively affected by increasing memory load and delay interval and decreasing… CONTINUE READING
