A signal-to-noise theory of the effects of luminance on picture memory: Comment on Loftus
Journal of experimental psychology. General
In studies of picture memory, subjects typically view a sequence of pictures. Their memory is tested either after each picture is presented (short-term recall) or at the end of the sequence (long-term recall). The increase in performance as a function of picture viewing time defines "the rate of information acquisition." Loftus (1985) found that reducing the luminance of a picture reduces the rate at which information is acquired (for both short-term and long-term tests) and, for long viewingdoi:10.1037//0096-3418.104.22.168 pmid:2940316 fatcat:54syvyern5b6xipepstst7odpy
