Visual short-term memory is more complex than previously assumed

9. December 2020

The news portal of the RUB reports:

The visual short-term memory seems more complex than expected, as the German-Chinese research team, which includes Rebekka Heinen and Prof. Dr. Nikolai Axmacher from the Bochum Neuropsychology Unit, was able to show.

For this purpose, the data of neuronal networks were compared with the brain data of epilepsy patients while observing a visual stimulus in the form of a banana. It was found that objects are not only represented in one form in short-term memory, but in several different complex forms simultaneously. First, simple properties are retained in memory, later more complex properties are added.
