Lecture Abstract: 

Visual working memory is a short-term storage system that allows visual information to be buffered briefly in the service of cognitive tasks.  I will describe our research addressing the nature of the representations that are stored in this system, the processes that create and use these representations, and how this system works as a storage buffer for a variety of tasks. I will end with recent research showing that patients with schizophrenia have reduced storage capacity but exhibit no impairment in the precision of their visual working memory representations.
