Considerable progress has been made during the past year toward achieving the projects main goals of elucidating the representations and processes involved in implicit and explicit memory for novel visual objects. Experiments have been completed or initiated that a clarify the effects of structural and functional encoding manipulations on priming and explicit memory, b help to specify the nature of the structural representation that underlies priming effects on the object decision task, c extend findings on priming of novel objects to tests other than possibleimpossible object decision, d elucidate the extent to which implicit memory for novel objects is spared in subject populations with explicit memory deficits, and e examine conditions under which priming of novel objects may be observed.
