Characteristics of Image Memory in Higher Vertebrates
Definition of Short-Term and Long-Term Image Memory. In the study of feeding behavior in higher vertebrates, two forms of image memory were observed. In the first, the image of the food object perceived is retained in memory only for some minutes, at the very most, one to two hours. This occurred if the image was based on a single sensory modality, i.e., visual, auditory, or vestibular perception of the location of food. We consider this the manifestation of short-term image memory.
