Effects of Sport Expertise on Representational Momentum during Timing Control
Published online: 25 December 2014© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract Sports involving fast visual perception require players to compensate for delays in neural processing of visual information. Memory for the final position of a moving object...
Examining Perceptual and Conceptual Set Biases in Multiple-Target Visual Search
Published online: 14 February 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Visual search is a common practice conducted countless times every day, and one important aspect of visual search is that multiple targets can appear in a single search array....
Learning of Monocular Information Facilitates Breakthrough to Awareness during Interocular Suppression
Published online: 27 February 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Continuous flash suppression (CFS) is a potent method of inducing binocular rivalry, wherein a rapid succession of high-contrast images presented to one eye effectively blocks...
Memory Instruction Interacts with Both Visual and Motoric Inhibition of Return
Published online: 17 January 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2014Abstract In the item-method directed forgetting paradigm, the magnitude of inhibition of return (IOR) is larger after an instruction to forget (F) than after an instruction to remember...
Modeling Visual Search Using Three-Parameter Probability Functions in a Hierarchical Bayesian Framework
Published online: 13 February 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract In this study, we applied Bayesian-based distributional analyses to examine the shapes of response time (RT) distributions in three visual search paradigms, which varied in...

Part-Whole Information Assists in Topological × Topological but Not in Orientation × Orientation Conjunction Searches
Published online: 23 January 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Visual search is a routine task used in everyday life and is an important field of research in cognitive psychology. In laboratory settings, it has been shown that search for...
Perceived Difficulty of a Motor Task Affects Memory but Not Action
Published online: 23 January 2015© The Psychonomic Society, Inc. 2015Abstract Successful motor interaction with a target changes memory of the target's size, which seems larger if the action was successful than if it was unsuccessful. This has been attributed...
