Visual Memory

Despite the immense processing power of the human brain, there are severe limitations to what we can remember about a single conscious moment. The amount and type of information held in visual memory is poorly understood. The lab is currently investigating the dynamics of visual memory employing behavioural, neural imaging and neural disruption techniques. The findings will reveal whether different memory processes rely on common or independent traces in the visual system, identify the neural substrates of these memory traces and redefine the major categories of visual short-term memory. The results will have significant implications for models of human memory, cognitive performance, visual consciousness and clinical diagnosis of memory impairments.
