Spatial and Temporal Factors Affecting Human Visual Recognition Memory
Robertson, Daniel (2007) Spatial and Temporal Factors Affecting Human Visual Recognition Memory. PhD thesis, University of Nottingham.
The current thesis investigated the effects of a variety of spatial and temporal factors on visual recognition memory in human adults. Continuous recognition experiments investigated the effect of lag (the number of items intervening between study and test) on recognition of a variety of stimulus sets (common objects, face-like stimuli, fractals, trigrams), and determined that recognition of common objects was superior to that of other stimulus types. This advantage was largely eradicated when common objects of only one class (birds) were tested.
