Evidence for a perception memory continuum: an EEG study in a healthy population

Ovalle Fresa, Rebecca; Rothen, Nicolas (19 July 2016). Evidence for a perception memory continuum: an EEG study in a healthy population (Unpublished). In: 6th International Conference on Memory (ICOM-6). Budapest, Hungary. 17.-22.07.2016.

In line with current memory theories of a perception-memory continuum along the ventral visual pathway, there is evidence that the specific profile of enhanced memory in special populations (e.g. synaesthesia) is based on increased perceptual sensitivity. The main goal of this study was to test in a more general population, if increased perceptual sensitivity is indeed associated with enhanced memory performance. We measured ERPs in response to simple perceptual stimuli biasing either the ventral or the dorsal route and established if perceptual sensitivity in response to ventrally (but not dorsally) processed stimuli is associated with visual short term memory performance in a change detection task. Preliminary results confirm the hypothesis and strengthen the assumption of a perceptual-memory-continuum.
