Characterizing chunks in visual short-term memory: Not more than one feature per dimension?

  • Werner X. Schneider (a1), Heiner Deubel (a1) and Maria-Barbara Wesenick (a1)
Abstract

Cowan defines a chunk as “a collection of concepts that have strong associations to one another and much weaker associations to other chunks currently in use.” This definition does not impose any constraints on the nature and number of elements that can be bound into a chunk. We present an experiment to demonstrate that such limitations exist for visual short-term memory, and that their analysis may lead to important insights into properties of visual memory.
