Dr. Bainbridge has a new paper out in Neuropsychologia, entitled “The resiliency of image memorability: A predictor of memory separate from attention and priming”. This research examines the phenomena of memorability by exploring two main questions: is image memorability a bottom-up, automatic process or a top-down, attentional process, and how do top-down and bottom-up processes interact with memorability to impact memory performance? Ultimately, the results of the study demonstrate that memorability is “an isolable phenomenon, occurring automatically, and is resilient to top-down influence.”
