In this paper we provide evidence that sensory memory, a pre-attentive, high-capacity form of visuospatial working memory is updated across eye movements. This less well researched memory form is typically assumed to be destroyed during saccades.
In this review, Stefan Van der Stigchel and Andrew Hollingworth argue that visuo-spatial working memory (VSWM) is a fundamental component of the eye movement system. Humans make frequent movements of the eyes (saccades) to explore the visua
In this article we reply to a recent opinion article, which made the case that visual working memory storage does not recruit neural populations involved in sensory processing. We argue that it does. Find a .pdf of this paper here.
