Introduction: Although the advantages of positive words on memory enhancement have been documented, the specific effects of the two prominent emotional dimensions (valence and arousal) under incidental encoding require further investigation. The objective is to study memory accuracy and response bias for positive/negative and highly/medium arousing words in a surprise old/new recognition memory paradigm under incidental encoding.

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...
Transfer of Learning on a Spatial Memory Task between the Blind and Sighted People
AKPINAR, SELÇUK; Popovic, Stevo; Kirazcı, Sadettin (2012-12-01)
The purpose of this study was to analyze the effect of two different types of feedback on a spatial memory task between the blind and blindfolded-sighted participants. Participants tried to estimate the predetermined distance by using their dominant hands. Both blind and blindfolded-sighted groups were randomly divided into two feedback subgroups as "100% frequency" and "10% bandwidth". The score of the participants was given verbally to the participants as knowledge of results (KR). The target distance was...
Theoretical limits to sensitivity and resolution in magneto-acousto-electrical tomography
GHALICHI, Elyar; Gençer, Nevzat Güneri (2017-10-21)
In this study, the performance of magneto-acousto-electrical tomography (MAET) is investigated quantitatively by considering interrelations between its sensitivity, resolution and conductivity contrast. An analytical solution for the forward problem of MAET is derived for two-dimensional (2D) concentric bodies by the separation of variables method. The electric potential and the acoustic pressure are separated into their angular and radial components. The series coefficients for these solutions are obtained...

Scale invariant representation of 2 5D data
AKAGUNDUZ, Erdem; ULUSOY PARNAS, İLKAY; BOZKURT, Nesli; Halıcı, Uğur (2007-06-13)
In this paper, a scale and orientation invariant feature representation for 2.5D objects is introduced, which may be used to classify, detect and recognize objects even under the cases of cluttering and/or occlusion. With this representation a 2.5D object is defined by an attributed graph structure, in which the nodes are the pit and peak regions on the surface. The attributes of the graph are the scales, positions and the normals of these pits and peaks. In order to detect these regions a "peakness" (or pi...
