Object recognition as a function of stimulus characteristics

Bulletin of the Psychonomic Society [January 1984]


Copyright (c) 1984

Abstract: Twenty-five college students were tested for recognition memory of small common objects immediately after exposure and after a retention interval of 1 week. The objects were classified into three object types based upon a cluster analysis of rated stimulus characteristics. The results indicated that recognition performance was influenced by object type and retention interval. The importance of considering stimulus characteristics in theoretical explanations of memory for environmental detail was discussed.
