Principal investigator (PI) in the ongoing project: Cognitive and neural mechanisms for processing of memorable visual stimuli (Academy of Finland, #355369, 2023 – 2027, 927 018 euros)

Recent evidence suggests that some pictures (with high memorability) tend to be remembered more easily by a given observer, even if they have not seen these pictures before. However, how stimulus memorability affects the formation of the long-term memory of a stimulus is still unclear. By measuring behavioral performance, tracking eye movements, and recording brain activity, we will answer the following questions: 1) What are the cognitive determinants underlying the effect of memorability on short-term memory? 2) If the stimuli are more memorable in short-term memory, are the long-term memory traces also more robust? 3) What is the neural basis underlying the effects of memorability on memory formation? This research will help aid in understanding the mechanisms of memorability, and can, in the long run, help develop teaching methods that promote learning and memory functions, as well as develop more effective diagnosis and intervention strategies for people with memory difficulties.
