Abstract : This project has attempted to elucidate the representations and processes involved in implicit and explicit memory for novel visual objects. Experiments have been conducted that (1) clarify the effects of structural and functional encoding manipulations on priming and explicit memory, (2) track the properties of the observed priming effects over time and repetition, (3) specify the nature of the structural representation that underlies priming effects on the objects decision task, (4) extend findings on priming of novel objects to new materials and paradigms, and (5) elucidate the extent to which implicit memory for novel objects is spared in subject populations with explicit memory deficits. We summarize the procedures and results from each of these five lines of research.
