Timescale- and Sensory Modality-Dependency of the Central Tendency of Time Perception

When individuals are asked to reproduce intervals of stimuli that are intermixedly presented at various times, longer intervals are often underestimated and shorter intervals overestimated. This phenomenon may be attributed to the central tendency of time perception, and suggests that our brain optimally encodes a stimulus interval based on current stimulus input and prior...

Opposite Distortions in Interval Timing Perception for Visual and Auditory Stimuli with Temporal Modulations

When an object is presented visually and moves or flickers, the perception of its duration tends to be overestimated. Such an overestimation is called time dilation. Perceived time can also be distorted when a stimulus is presented aurally as an auditory flutter, but the mechanisms and their relationship to visual processing remains unclear. In the present study, we measured...

Defining a Link between Perceptual Learning and Attention

Takeo Watanabe and Yuko Yotsumoto explore the implications of a new study that shows that for perceptual learning of visual features involving multiple stimuli to occur, the brain needs to temporally ...

Out of mind, but not out of sight: Intentional control of visual memory

Does visual information enjoy automatic, obligatory entry into memory, or, after such information has been seen, can it still be actively excluded? To characterize the process by which visual information could be excluded from memory, we used Sternberg’s (1966, 1975) recognition paradigm, measuring visual episodic memory for compound grating stimuli. Because recognition declines...

Performance Dip in Motor Response Induced by Task-Irrelevant Weaker Coherent Visual Motion Signals

The Performance Dip is a newly characterized behavioral phenomenon, where, paradoxically, a weaker task-irrelevant visual stimulus causes larger disturbances on the accuracy of a main letter identification task than a stronger stimulus does. Understanding mechanisms of the Performance Dip may provide insight into unconsciousness behavior. Here, we investigated the generalization...

Recognition and position information in working memory for visual textures

In three experiments, we examined connections between item-recognition memory and memory for itemposition information. With sequences of compound gratings as study and probe items, subjects made either itemposition judgments (Experiments 1 and 2), by identifying the serial position of the study item that matched the probe, or recognition judgments (Experiment 3), by judging...

Recognition memory for realistic synthetic faces

A series of experiments examined short-term recognition memory for trios of briefly presented, synthetic human faces derived from three real human faces. The stimuli were a graded series of faces, which differed by varying known amounts from the face of the average female. Faces based on each of the three real faces were transformed so as to lie along orthogonal axes in a 3-D...
