The purpose of this experiment is to study how individuals are able to store and retrieve items from short-term memory.
In this implementation of this task, participants are asked to memorize letters and ignore others. Then, a list of letters is presented to participants that contains a mix of primed letters and distractor letters. This is also structured to be easily integrated with EEG or fMRI devices with only minor changes necessary.
