Abstract

Currently, literature suggests that body position affects attentional allocation via low-level perceptual processes. The results from the current study demonstrate that body position acts as an implicit cue to protect the storage of items in visual short term memory. These results reflect that there may be cognitive benefits of body position as well as perceptual benefits.

Body Position Influences Maintenance of Objects in Visual Short-Term Memory

Currently, literature suggests that body position affects attentional allocation via low-level perceptual processes. The results from the current study demonstrate that body position acts as an implicit cue to protect the storage of items in visual short term memory. These results reflect that there may be cognitive benefits of body position as well as perceptual benefits.
