Role of Object Working Memory in Subsequent Search Misses
During the visual search of several stimuli, the subsequent search misses effect can occur. SSM means that after successful detection of the first target stimulus, the second one can be missed. In this study, we investigated how object working memory load, target similarity and the similarity of stimuli in memory and search tasks affect SSM. It has been shown, that object working memory load and type of information, which loaded working memory, have no significant influence on multiple-target visual search efficiency, while number of shared features does. Moreover, a significant interaction between working memory load and the number of common features between target stimuli was found. It may indicate the general mechanism underlying both of them.
