Working Memory

October 23, 2018

I’m researching the ability to distinguish between what you're seeing that's actually out there in
the world, and the images that are internally generated (through cognitive processes like
memory or imagination). In order to function successfully, it is imperative to make that
distinction between external reality and internally generated imagery. Specifically, my
experiments examine the interaction between working memory (internally generated imagery)
and a detection task (which relies on externally generated imagery). I'm researching how the
ability to detect a stimulus is affected by whether or not the stimulus matches the content of
your working memory.
