Abstract

Long-term memory capacity for visual scenes is impressive. However, as shown in studies with young adults, the fidelity of the representation is degraded by semantic interference (SI): the higher the number of images from the same semantic category, the worse their retrieval. We investigated whether and how SI impacts long-term visual memory of healthy older participants and people in pre-dementia stage.
