Abstract: This study reviewed the literature regarding capacity limitation in processing curvature from visual perception to short-term visual memory (STVM) for a single curved contour with multiple convex parts. Capacity limitation was defined in terms of both set-size effects and decay with a retention interval. The results of psychophysical experiments and simulations involving signal detection theory indicated that visual perception exhibited some capacity limitation, which was caused by attentional allocation rath…
