Abstract:

Research has been undertaken on visual attention and short term visual memory VSTM. One set of experiments has concerned the role that depth information might play in retrieval from VSTM, using an iconic memory paradigm. Another set concerns development of the attention gating model, using the attention shift RSVP paradigm. Finally, we are studying some effects of attention and visual imagery on visual acuity.
