To evaluate the impact of aging on controlled memory search operations, we investigated the retrieval of temporal order information from working memory (WM).


Age related changes in recognition memory for emotional stimuli
Kılıç, Aslı; Gökçay, Didem; Department of Cognitive Sciences (2007)
Recognition memory - a type of episodic memory in long term memory - is known in the literature to be affected by emotion, aging and the modality of the presented stimuli. The major aim of this study was to investigate whether emotional stimuli enhances recognition memory. Another goal was to observe whether modality and aging effects are present and differentiable in a non-Western subject sample. In literature, emotion studies were based on mainly two dimensions of emotions: valence and arousal. However, t...

Introduction: Interval timing requires cognitive resources such as attention, longterm memory, and working memory. Unfortunately, these functions deteriorate with aging. Changes in time perception are reported in healthy aging, in addition to several different neuropsychiatric disorders. Although age-related changes in time perception have been amply described in the literature, the actual underlying mechanisms remain controversial. Materials and Method: This study included a total of 33 young (mean age = 2...
Underlying mechanisms of memory distrust as a function of repeated checking in nonclinical student sample
Demirsöz, Talat; Ayvaşık, H. Belgin; Department of Psychology (2007)
The purpose of the present study was to examine the underlying mechanism of memory distrust as a function of repeated checking in a nonclinical student sample. Recent literature proposes that repeated checking increases familiarity with the material checked. Then, familiarity makes the recollections less vivid and detailed. Afterwards, this condition promotes distrust in memory. Before the experimental phase of the study, Padua Inventory- Washington State University Revision (PI-WSUR) and demographic inform...
Brain oscillatory analysis of visual working memory errors
Mapelli, Igor; Özkurt, Tolga Esat; Department of Health Informatics (2019)
Brain dynamics of memory formation were explored throughout a working memory (WM) task. Electroencephalography data were acquired from participants while presented with grayscale photos of object categories (each category defined by images sharing a common gist). Following a short delay, two probes were shown to test memory accuracy. Time-frequency representations of successful and erroneous memories were contrasted. Additionally, brain connectivity was studied via coherency and phase-amplitude coupling (PA...
Prospective duration judgments: The role of temporality and executive demands of concurrent tasks
Duzcu, Haul; Hohenberger, Annette Edeltraud (Elsevier BV, 2014-03-01)
It is known that concurrent non-temporal tasks shorten reproduced temporal durations in prospective duration judgments. Two experiments were carried out, one comparing a concurrent temporal task to a minimally demanding concurrent task (Experiment 1) and one comparing an executive concurrent (Simon) task with a less demanding non-executive concurrent task (Experiment 2). An effect of the concurrent task type on temporal reproductions was found. Furthermore, a duration length effect was found, where longer d...
