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…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
