Beyond identification: remembering the images that we have seen


Under the right conditions, our ability to remember whether we have encountered a particular object or scene  is remarkable - we can make these determinations after viewing tens of thousands of images, each only once, and we store these memories with exceptional visual detail. What neural processes support single-exposure visual familiarity memory? I will describe a series of combined experimental and computational projects targeted at understanding the neural correlates of visual memory in high-level visual brain areas such as inferotemporal cortex (IT).
