Relationships of Selected Perceptual Variables to Leveling/Sharpening in the Memory of Sequential Visual Images.
Ausburn, Lynna J.; Ausburn, Floyd B.
This study was designed to examine relationships between three variables of analysis/integration skill in visual perception and the tendency to retain differentiated memories of sequential visual images in a sample of 206 university undergraduates. Correlation techniques and factor analysis were used to analyze relationships between the perceptual variables and the memory variable. While some relationships between perceptual skill and memory were found which were statistically significant, variations in neither individual perceptual skills nor in factors which they formed in combination were found to account for a sufficient portion of variance in visual memory functioning to be of practical importance. Leveling/sharpening in visual memory appeared to be largely independent of the specific perceptual skills measured in this study. (Author)
