Receiver operating characteristics are used to examine the relationship between hits and false alarm rates across changes in response criterion.
Recent work has indicated the medial temporal lobes are involved in some forms of perception and working memory. Current work is examining the processes involved in these types of tasks in order to test competing theories of memory and perception.
Novel or distinctive events are remembered well. For example, pictures that are made novel by presenting them in a relatively uncommon color are associated with enhanced recollection and familiarity based recognition memory.
Recent evidence from a wide variety of behavioral and neuroscientific studies has led most researchers to reject both “threshold” or “signal detection” classes of models in favor of ‘hybrid’ models—such as the Dual Process Signal Detection (DPSD) model—that combine the strengths of both approaches.
Implicit memory is critical for many complex human behaviors.
Normal aging is associated with hippocampal atrophy and declines in white matter integrity.
