Poster #47: Dylan Hutchings – Searching Through Memory and Space for the Effect of Repeat Search

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Trafton Drew

We recorded ERP components to better understand the long-term memory encoding process for visual stimuli. . We hypothesized that successfully finding a target would create an “attentional gate”. An attentional gate would increase the accuracy of finding the object when searching for it later. Our main research question is what is the effect of finding or not finding targets during repeated searches on encoding visual information into long-term memory.
