Utilization and Organization of Visually Presented Information. Final Report.
Dick, A. O.
The experiments discussed in this report do not have a direct relationship to each other but represent work on a series of sub-issues within the general framework of visual processing of information. Because of this discreteness, the report is organized into a series of papers. The first is a general review of tachistoscopic work on iconic memory and issues related to iconic memory. Following this paper are reports of seven experiments. (Eleven experiments were carried out, but a number of these were follow-up studies and therefore have been incorporated into the discussions of the original experiments.) The topics of the seven experiments are: (1) iconic memory: effects of luminance and cue modality; (2) a developmental experiment on order of report and scanning mechanisms; (3) iconic memory and types of visual cues; (4) iconic memory for letters and geometric forms; (5) binocular and dichoptic cuing in iconic memory; (6) parallel and serial processing in tachistoscopic recognition: two mechanisms; and (7) the role of verbalization in tachistoscopic recognition.
