Madeline Gedvila, a recent UChicago graduate and former Brain Bridge Lab undergraduate researcher, recently published a paper along with Joan Ochongo and Dr. Bainbridge titled “Memorable beginnings, but forgettable endings: Intrinsic memorability alters our subjective experience of time.” They tested how memorability influences time perception by having observers view scenes in an oddball paradigm, where the last scene could be a forgettable “oddball” amidst memorable ones, or vice versa. They found that subjective time dilation occurred only for forgettable oddballs, but not memorable ones – demonstrating an oddball effect where the oddball did not differ in low-level visual features, image category, or even subjective memorability.
